Inner Yoga: Selected Writings of Sri Anirvan (New)
by Anirvan, Sri
Publisher: Morning Light Press
Book ID: 9781596750197, 1596750197
In Inner Yoga Sri Anirvan explores in depth the various levels of spiritual practice, offering practical advice to the seeker as well as explications of the connections between mind and body. He speaks with the deep knowledge of an accomplished yogi who has absorbed the texts and who illuminates the experiences of a practitioner: "We have seen how strenuous an effort is required to remove [the mind's] restlessness and fix the mind on an object. We usually call this the effort of meditation. But if we try to meditate not with the mind, but with the awareness, the effort becomes easier.
"What you think, that you become; and if this be so, then all can be done and what you discover in this way is the very Truth." In Inner Yoga, Sri Anirvan (poet, religious thinker and yogi) explains the eight limbs of Patanjala Yoga in the light of India's spiritual traditions. With his poetic abilities and peaceful insights, he takes his readers on an unusual journey of finding the immortal life of the Self.
"It is necessary, first of all, to set in order the things outside ourselves, for only when the mind is somewhat freed from outer disturbances can it go within But in establishing order in our external circumstances, we must not depend on others. Instead of trying to change the actions of others, we must try rather to change our own reaction to them. In all our contacts and relations with the world, we must strive to maintain equality of mind."
"The true meaning of purifying your feeling is to become as empty as the sky. To possess the All, it is first necessary to be empty, to be void. And in that void, your deep-rooted impressions...will naturally arise in form. To give up everything in order to gain everything this is the key to all practice of Yoga."
The Voynich Manuscript
Yale University Press
Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
