(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, 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, 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.
