The publishers take the liberty to call the attention of the reader to the great amount of information condensed within the space given to each lesson.

They have also stated that they have found it advisable to re-read the lessons several times, allowing an interval between each reading and that at each re-reading they would discover information that had escaped them during the course of the previous study. This has been repeated to us so often that we feel justified in mentioning it, that other readers might avail themselves of the same course and plan of study.

It is over thirty years since I studied the entire works and teachings of Ramacharaka and even now his knowledge of yoga has proved invaluable in my own life as a Psychologist,Nuro-pathological re-mapping,without his teachings my own self knowledge would be lacking from my own understanding.Jai Sat Guru Dev.


Fabulous book....

I read this book the first time in 1968. It was instrumental in my life long study of Yoga. Because of the priceless knowlegde contained within this text I went to India where I met a Fully Awakened Yoga Master. In a sense I owe it all to "Ramacharaka" and this book. 10 Star Rating!!!


The reading of this book aided me beond words in finding the truths of this exsistance. I recomend it to everyone, those who are in need of its information will get more than they have ever desired.
Peace unto you
