(8 1/2 x 11, B&W, 42 pages) Bindu means Point or Dot, is sometimes likened to a Pearl, and is often related to the principle of a Seed. There literally is a stage of Meditation in which all... More > experiences collapse, so to speak, into a point from which they all arose in the first place. Bindu is near the end of the subtlest aspect of mind, after which one transcends mind. It is near the end of time, space, and causation, and is the doorway to the Absolute. Bindu is the convergence point of Meditation, Contemplation, Prayer, and Mantra, and is part of the mystical, esoteric aspect of many, if not most religions and meditative traditions. Bindu is an actual, experienced reality, which is the convergence point of the highest principles and practices of Yoga, Vedanta, and Tantra. Seeking the Bindu serves as an organizing principle and focal point for all of the practices intended to lead one to direct experience. (This article is from SwamiJ.com)< Less

(8 1/2 x 11, B&W, 32 pages) The OM Mantra is a roadmap for sadhana, spiritual practices (written as either AUM or OM). It is not for the person who seeks only the shallow waters of spiritual... More > life, but rather for those who strive to realize in direct experience the depth of the Absolute Reality. There are four main levels of consciousness outlined in the OM Mantra, along with three transition levels, which is a total of seven levels. Each of these is experienced on the inner journey of meditation and contemplation. It is important to be aware of the fact that these levels of consciousness are realities that exist universally, regardless of whether or not one uses the OM Mantra or the visual OM symbol in any way. In either case, the underlying principles are extremely useful for all seekers in purifying or clearing the mind, and seeking the direct experience of deeper truths.

(8 1/2 x 11, B&W, 32 pages) The word Karma literally means action. It may appear that Karma is happening to us, as if some outside force is causing good things or bad things to come to us.... More > However, it is really our own inner conditionings and processes that are leading us to experience outer effects or consequences in relation to our own actions. To understand the meaning of Karma, and to reduce its control through Yoga, one needs to understand another term, Samskara. Karma literally means actions, and those actions come from the deep impressions of habit called Samskaras. These two act together, with our actions and speech creating Samskaras, and those leading to actions or Karma. This is something that with which all of us are already familiar, whether or not we use the word Karma to describe it. We can choose our own future Karma if we are willing to put in the effort to learn how to do it. (This article is from SwamiJ.com.)< Less

(8 1/2 x 11, B&W, 63 pages) The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali succinctly outlines the art and science of Yoga meditation for Self-Realization. It is a process of systematically encountering,... More > examining, and transcending each of the various gross and subtle levels of false identity in the mind field, until the jewel of the true Self comes shining through. This is an interpretive translation of the Yoga Sutra, expanding the number of English words, so as to allow the practical instructions to be clearer. For example, sutra 1.2 defines Yoga with some 25 English words, rather than only 4 Sanskrit words. The practices of the Yoga Sutras are extremely practical, though it can seem quite complicated when trying to sort through the language. By providing expanded, interpretive translations, the practical meaning of the suggestions more easily comes through. The individual transliterated Sanskrit words also have a large number of English translations, so as to give a more thorough understanding.< Less
