Product description

Review

Panning the one-dimensional keep-fit view of yoga in the west and advocating a return to the depth and breadth of yoga s true roots, yogi manmoyanand s controversial new book exceeded all expectations and will become an instant bestseller not only at Watkins, but across the globe. --Watkins Books, London

This book is like a light, if you stand behind it, it will illuminate your path as far as you can see, but if you confront it, it will surely blind you. --Swami Achutanand, Ashram at Kamet, Himalayas

From the Inside Flap

I would not interfere with any creed of yours,
or want to appear that i have all the cures.
There is so much to know, so many things are true.
The way my feet must go may not be the best for you.
And so i give a spark of what is light to me,
to guide you through the dark, but not tell you what to see. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Interesting I had learned a lot about Yoga and Sadhana. Now I know that I have to be very careful about what kind of Yoga I want to follow.

if there were a 10 stars rating, the book deserves it. The story traces the yogi's journey from a seeker to his spiritual maturity under the guidance of his guru, and subsequent departure to fulfill his karmic role as a teacher himself. packed full of wisdom the yogi gleaned from his masters and his own practice and told with the transparent purity of a mountain spring. It unveils and illuminates what yoga truly is and the light it shines is one that not only touches the soul but firmly imprints itself as the voice of truth. I only wish that he would go into even greater detail about the asanas. A great book.

Perhaps, the reviewer who gave this book a 2 star rating didn't finish reading it. Or maybe their particular Yoga cult or spiritual tradition was given short shift by the author. However, the authors insight and appraisal of modern day Yogic teaching methods and the fallacious premises that uphold numerous apparent spiritual traditions finds complete accord with my own experience and subsequent disappointment

Yoga and spirituality is so globally fashionable nowadays that it's peddled. Any charmer who's read some of the classic Yoga tomes can simply regurgitate the words of 'realised' others and the spiritually famined masses will swallow whatsoever is offered, 'hook, line and sinker', and lo and behold, a star is born!

Swami Manmoyanand has done the world a huge favour by detailing the crimes that have been perpetrated upon spiritual traditions and the phenomenal science of Yoga by fakes, charmers and forceful personalities, as well as the errant legislativs requirements imposed by governments. After explaining in the first part of the book how his own hunger for answers to pressing questions were not answered, revealed by practises or even respected by the numerous and various spiritual groups and Yoga masters that he cut off totally from his quest. Then after a chance meeting on a train with a group of sadhanas the book follows a different course and the reader is guided along an incredible journey as the author learns the real science of Yoga from Masters of Vedanta, Tantra and Yoga living in the Himalayas.

The 2 star reviewer may have thrown aside the book before this time. A very sad ending, because if they had persisted they would have found many wonderful gems of Yogic wisdom kindly offered up by S. Manmoyanand.

I am not a yoga practitioner and don't know anything about yoga, but seen from a spiritual point of view this is the best book I have ever read. It describes the essence of spiritual search in a very beautiful way, and at the same time explains the relationship between physics and yoga in simple and logical way. Also, the last chapter on the commercial corruption of yoga is really interesting information for a non yoga practitioner like myself. Now, I will definitely never practice that gymnastic yoga, I have heard so much about from friends and colleagues.

If you are a seeker, buy this book! If you are not, buy it anyway!

I picked up the book only because of its title as I personally was a big practicioner of so called Sivananda Yoga. I always objected that yoga should be look upon just as a set of physical practices in order to lose weight, or get less stressed or that it's in to do yoga in mini short and tight T shirt in some sort of fancy yoga studio. So yes Yogi Manmoyanand's book is not for those who see yoga as let's hug everybody and remedy for psycho-somatic problems but who those who do not see yoga as 1 hour workout on the mat, therapeutic sessions but as a life long practice (sadhana) full of discipline and self-observation and for seekers of the ultimate goal i.e. self-realisation. Manmoyanand writes his story of his spiritual journey and gives us a glimpse what 'real' yoga actually is and the results one achieves during his practice. He is factual and very scientific. Even one might not agree with everything author says, one has to admit that his journey is definitely amazing. Definitely recomended for any serious seeker....

A profound book, possibly to be misunderstood

This is an extremely profound yet very lucidly and engagingly written book, which, however, is likely to be misunderstood.

The author of the book, a young and accomplished Yogi (born in 1969, so he is only 37), before taking a final stage of Samadhi is told by his guru to go back to the mundane everyday life, become a householder and to prepare at least one disciple who is to become a true Yogi. What is a true Yogi?

The book provides an answer. A gist of the answer is the following. A follower of a (very cryptically written and, if only for that reason, misunderstood) Yoga Sutras of Patanajili, who completed a series of very precise procedures such purification of nadis, followed by completion of Yoga postures, followed by Pranayama etc. In the end, one quite literally rather than metaphorically becomes a universe, a state called Samadhi. Which makes any Western style Yoga just a set of engaging and useful but mostly physical exercise, almost totally unrelated to the true Yoga as an arduous and long progression towards Samadhi?

This is an extremely rare book for three reasons. First, a true Yogi almost never communicates with us, mortals (I am saying this without even a trace of irony): quite literally there is no common theme for a conversation. Even if accidentally there are common terms, like meditation or pranayama the meaning of these words for a true yogi and for a `fitness Yogi' is quite difference. Thanks to the author' Guru request, we are fortunate to have unique glimpse at `Yogi's kitchen' - procedures of achieving `purity of body, clarity of mind and divinity of heart' Again, this is not a metaphor, the book explains, in very precise terms what it all means.
