From the Introduction Over the last half millennium, one book has established itself as the classic work on Hatha Yoga--the book you are holding in your hands. An Indian yogi named Svatmarama wrote the Hatha Yoga Pradipika in the fifteenth century C.E. Drawing on his own experience and older works now lost, he wrote this book for the student of Yoga. He wrote this book for you. Table of Contents Introduction Asanas Pranayama Mudras Samadhi Contributors About the Author Now living in Woodstock, New York, Brian Dana Akers began practicing Yoga at age twelve, learning Sanskrit at seventeen, and working in publishing at twenty-three. Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved. Eight Sample Verses Yoga succeeds by these six: enthusiasm, openness, courage, knowledge of the truth, determination, and solitude. Success is achieved neither by wearing the right clothes nor by talking about it. Practice alone brings success. This is the truth, without a doubt. When the breath is unsteady, the mind is unsteady. When the breath is steady, the mind is steady, and the yogi becomes steady. Therefore one should restrain the breath. As salt and water become one when mixed, so the unity of self and mind is called samadhi. He who binds the breath, binds the mind. He who binds the mind, binds the breath. Center the self in space and space in the self. Make everything space, then don't think of anything. Empty within, empty without, empty like a pot in space. Full within, full without, full like a pot in the ocean. Don't think of external things and don't think of internal things. Abandon all thoughts, then don't think of anything.

Mohan, presents critical analysis unavailable in any other translation to date. This translation includes summaries, notes on which practices may be more or less useful or even harmful, and comparisons to the Gheranda Samhita. This book is a worthwhile read and companion to any serious yoga aspirant, especially those interested in knowing what one of the most influential yogis of the modern times had to say on the esoteric practices of hatha yoga: on pranayama, mudras, and bandhas.

This is perhaps the most detailed commentary, most English-expressed translation of the Hatha Yoga Pradipika with profuse illustrations of what happens in the subtle body of a yogi who is proficient in kundalini manipulation for subtle body transformation. Some diagrams show what happens in the subtle body of a yogi who masters this process. The tantric aspects of controlled psyche-arresting sexual intercourse is plainly discusses just as Swatmarama Mahayogin did in the Sanskrit original but with more details in the commentary of exactly how that is done. This is the theory. A reader is responsible for the practice but there is sufficient exposition. Any ascetic can use this information to develop a kundalini yoga practice. The raja yoga integration of remaining introverted while being externally occupied is explained. Kundalini yoga as it is described in the Hatha Yoga Pradipika is a complicated mix of ascetic practices, but if the student learns each of the aspects from a competent teacher, it can be mastered. This book is the syllabus for such education and gives the theoretical platform for this.

The Hatha Yoga Pradipika is an ancient text used by Yogis to create the power. This is one of the earliest treatises on Hatha Yoga; all the modern books are based on it. This book is intended as an aid for those who wish to learn the advance practices of Hatha (Kundalini) Yoga from a qualified teacher. It is suggested that it also be used in conjunction with Complete Illustrated Book of Yoga by Swami Vishnu-Devananda, the Sivananda Companion to Yoga (known as the Book of Yoga in Britain), and Yoga Mind and Body. Many of the instructions given here have been purposely veiled by the original writers, others need elaboration, and many require the guidance of a teacher for correction. Swami Vishnu-Devananda has repeatedly stressed that these practices are not for beginners, and that to violate this caution is to put the psyche at risk. Please therefore, follow these instructions along with the guidance of your guru. A Glossary has been prepared for this book for this third edition, the hopes that this will be used as a reference manual for serious Yoga students on all levels.
