(8 1/2 x 11, B&W, 270 pages) For quite a few years people have been asking me about having a printed copy of the Yoga Sutras pages on the SwamiJ.com website. Because of the print-on-demand... More > technology provided by Lulu.com, this is now available. This “book” is virtually a copy and paste of the pages from the website. There has been some slight reformatting to make things fit well, but it is basically identical to the website. From time to time I will likely update this “book” as the website is updated. I sincerely hope that you find this useful in your journey of meditation. I have attempted to make the translations and descriptions as practical as possible so that you may easily incorporate the principles into your daily meditation practice.

(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

(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, 87 pages) This book is an expansion of the seven-page Summary of Practices outline which I have used for teaching and training at Abhyasa Ashram (Florida, USA) and Sadhana... More > Mandir (Rishikesh, India) from time to time since 1996, and directly follows the outline on the first or summary page of that handout. The purpose of this longer book is to complement meditation retreats, classes, and one-to-one coaching sessions. The outline has been gradually revised to make it ever more clear as an expression of the systematic practice of meditation as taught to me and the world in general by Swami Rama. Similarly, I will continue to revise this book to make it increasingly clear as a learning aid to practicing systematic meditation of the tradition of the Himalayan masters.
