Old book dusted off the shelf

There was this book I had bought 10 years ago ……….and which …I had not read at all.  But nevertheless ………considering my current context and pursuit of the internal world – the book came out (along with many others) and I’m reading it.


This book is titled

Meditation – Its Process, Practice, and Culmination by Swami Satprakashananda.

This book has been published by the Sri Ramakrishna Math – Mylapore Chennai.  I’m still reading it and yet to ascertain how good this book is.  The impression which BKS Iyengar’s book had on me ……….is still fresh.  So there’s bound to be implicit comparisons.


Light on Life


Well now that I’m fully into Yoga these days ………..have been reading many books on this subject.  The current book which is keeping me engrossed is the one shown above.  This is for advanced practitioners of Yoga.  While it is very essential for Yoga practitioners to learn their stuff from a proper guru – this book follows this dictum to the core.  It does not teach about any asanas/pranayams and the entire books is dedicated on the subtler aspects of asanas/pranayamas/kriyas etc.  These subtler aspects can be applied to the exercises taught by any guru – and get maximal benefits.  I’m truly enjoying it.

Awaiting Hemanth to get me the next instalment of Yoga books 😉
