An Introduction to Yoga
Download This eBook
I'm going to finish this book since I'm more than halfway through it. It came installed on my iPod so I thought I'd give it a whirl. Since I know no Sanskrit or basically nothing about the philosophy of Yoga, I'm pretty lost. I'm reading the words but not really grasping what I'm reading and certainly not retaining.

Some background reading in the field would help anybody trying to understand it. Yoga is more of a philosophy, as it lacks the experimentation, measurement and objectivity required of science. However, the book was interesting, as I had not read anything about yoga before. Mar 16, Alexkidd rated it liked it. I expected much more from an introduction book, giving me more historical details, about spirituality and maybe some pictures but nothing. If you have 2 hours to spend read it, if not you find books about yoga more interesting as I did. Sep 18, Bernie Gourley rated it liked it Shelves: yoga.
This is a philosophy book--or theosophy if you want to get technical about it.
I was ignorant of who Annie Besant was when I read this book. Given my respect for—and alignment with-- the ideas of Krishnamurti, I must admit that this biased me a bit against the Society. So theosophy is knowledge of the divine and it suggests that a mystical path to knowing god can be achieved. The second lecture puts yoga into context as one of the six Indian schools of Philosophy, mostly comparing and contrasting yoga to Samkhya and Vedanta—the schools that yoga is most closely linked to.
The third lecture considers yoga as an applied science. The final lecture discusses the practice of yoga. In more specific detail, the book addresses the following topics: the 4 states of consciousness, the 3 aspects of consciousness, the 5 stages of the mind, the 3 gunas, the 5 functions of pain, and the 7 obstacles to yogic progress.
Given this book is the product is 19th century English, its readability is tolerable—especially considering the complex and abstract concepts under consideration. This book skips straight to the last three limbs, i. Oct 15, Claudia rated it liked it. An interesting read into the background and origins of yoga and its involvement with science, spirit, body and mind. Recommended for those who are interested in grasping the understanding of yoga and concepts behind it, so not necessarily those who practice it.

Yoga is not merely a form of exercise for the body. It is an ancient wisdom - for a healthier, happier, and more peaceful way of living - which ultimately leads to union with the Self. It is an inherent desire in humans to be happy. The ancient sages, through inquiry about life, were able to reach a state of consciousness in which the secrets of healthier, happier, and meaningful living were revealed to them.
