A practical guide to the whole system of yoga
Swami Janakananda’s expanded and revised third edition of Yoga, Tantra and Meditation in Daily Life will allow novices and experts to expand their knowledge of yoga
Yoga, Tantra and Meditation in Daily Life, firmly rooted in the tradition, is a modern classic. It is first and foremost a practical guide to the whole system of yoga. The clear step-by-step instructions make it easy for the beginner to learn the yoga poses, breathing exercises, relaxation and meditation. For the experienced, the book contains in-depth sections that include both practice and theory. It even elucidates the tantric tradition, kundalini yoga, the chakras and the sexual rituals. Readers can use the book as a self-study course and for inspiration in their everyday lives.
The goal of Swami’s book is to make it possible to create a strong and supple body and a free and creative mind – and to find peace within oneself. The book shows yoga in its original light; recreational, meditative and relaxing, thus providing necessary energy for meeting daily activities with peace and wellbeing.
Yoga, Tantra and Meditation in Daily Life differs from most other books on yoga; it has its fundament in the tantric tradition – that is, the author’s intention and interest is to offer a way to achieve tangible results, rather than to present philosophical explanations, create dreams and ideals or follow the fleeting fashions in the yoga of today. Thorough, informative, and with clear explanations, it will appeal to both the complete beginner, as well as the most advanced student of yoga.
Published by Bindu, Yoga, Tantra and Meditation in Daily Life was a success when it was published for the first time in 1975 and it has been in bookstores ever since. This is the third expanded and revised edition. Review copies are available on request from Matador.
