How to Know God: Yoga Aphorisms of Patanjali
How to Know God: Yoga Aphorisms of Patanjali
by Patanjali
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, 20 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent commentary on a classic of vedantic literature, including the sanskrit for those who might want to see it. With good practical advice for those lacking a current teacher.

3.0 out of 5 stars The theory constructed around the Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation (but without practical instruction), 20 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
OK, I suppose, but don't expect to told how to meditate. All the theory with no practical instruction, which he says can only be obtained from accredited TM instructors. As with much written on meditation, it describes the results in great detail - but little about how to and how it feels. More like a marketing guide to TM than anything you can apply for yourself.


The Growth Illusion
The Growth Illusion
by Richard Douthwaite
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Growth in economics seen only necessary to support our flawed acceptance that a return on capital is necessary, 20 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Growth Illusion (Paperback)
Good, if a bit dated now. Needs a rewrite for the current decade. Excellent view of recent Irish economic history.


Aphorisms of Yoga
Aphorisms of Yoga
by Patanjali
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars See title, 20 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Aphorisms of Yoga (Paperback)
Good summary from Purohit Swami - uniform with other projects undertaken more or less in collaboration with W.B. Yeats. Good as a confirmatory commentary with 'How to Know God - Yoga Aphorisms of Patanjali' (a more valuable work).

5.0 out of 5 stars Title and subtitle capture it., 20 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Outlines some of Ouspensky's quest 'in search of the miraculous' and summarises conversations with George Gurdjieff. The title and subtitle capture it, and the fragments are still valid. Extremely readable in comparison with other books by the author.
