Yoga is the traditional form of exercise invented in India. Hatha Yoga Pradipika�enables you to experience the art of yoga & the benefits that the different asana�s have on your body and mind.
Hatha Yoga Pradipika�is a translation of Swami Svatmaram�s original text which is much more complex & difficult to understand. Hatha Yoga Pradipika�is written in a much simpler language, & therefore, is more understandable. The book is segregated into different segments, each of which concentrates on a certain aspect of yoga related with your body. The book not only deals with the physical aspect of exercise but also with the psychological effect that yoga has on the mind. It gives you details & information on the Chakras & the Kundalini energy which help you achieve health & develop concentration.
The book is a spiritual revelation as one of the chapters discusses shat karmas, a practice in yoga that is done to purify the body. Many of the practices help in the cure of physical diseases like sinus. Other practices like Dhauti, Basti & tantric yoga are also given in details. Finally, the last practice called Samadhi; that is very difficult to attain & can only be obtained through rigorous practice, is also given a mention. The book is ideal to lead a healthy life & remain fit while walking the path of spirituality.
The book has been translated by Swami Muktibodhananda, who has mastered the art of Satyananda yoga. Her other book is called Swara Yoga: The Tantric Science of Brain Breathing. She has done elaborate research on the art of yoga & meditation, & is an expert in this field. She is currently living in Melbourne as a yoga instructor.
