Hidden Treasures of Yoga (Revealing Certain Ancient and Secret Methods of Practical Mysticism)
Hidden Treasures of Yoga (Revealing Certain Ancient and Secret Methods of Practical Mysticism)
Description
Introduction

In this book, it has been my endeavour to set out in simple language, a few processes of yogic development, which have not so far been available to the readers of books on Yoga. In order to secure sufficient clarity in presentation. I have described in some detail the fundamental concepts on which the practice is based. The subject being one of universal interest, entirely free from religious and geographical limitations. I have freely quoted the parallel experiences of western adepts and scientists. It is not the aim of this book to displace the use of the usual text books on Yoga or to displace with the personal guidance of qualified Gurus (Teachers) on this subject. I have adhered as far as possible closely to the literal wording of the various texts on the subject, even to the extent of allowing the language to appear "queer" in places, my own views or directions, where necessary, have generally been given within brackets. For the convenience of readers who may like to refer to the original text taken up or exposition. I have reprinted the same in Appendix I to this book. A glossary of technical and quasi-technical terms is also appended in Appendix II. In Bibliography, I have given a fairly full list of the various publications to which I have made reference. I hope this will assist my readers in their further studies of the subject.
