Reseña del editor

"Eight Limbs of Yoga - The Structure and Pacing of Self-Directed Spiritual Practice" provides an efficient integration of a wide range of yoga practices for use in a daily routine that is compatible with an active lifestyle, while staying in tune with the centuries-old "Yoga Sutras of Patanjali." Here, these ancient innovations are brought up-to-date and optimized for modern self-directed practitioners. The center of all spiritual progress is found within each human nervous system. When these time-tested methods for stimulating human spiritual transformation are applied in an integrated way, spiritual unfoldment can occur within any cultural or religious setting. Detailed instructions on the many individual practices discussed here are provided throughout the AYP writings. This volume ties them all together in a systematic way to facilitate long term self-paced cultivation of abiding inner silence, ecstatic bliss, outpouring divine love, and the rise of unity in Self-realization. Yogani is the author of two landmark books on the world's most effective spiritual practices: "Advanced Yoga Practices - Easy Lessons for Ecstatic Living," a comprehensive user-friendly textbook, and "The Secrets of Wilder," a powerful spiritual novel. The "AYP Enlightenment Series" makes these profound practices available for the first time in a series of concise instruction books. "Eight Limbs of Yoga" is the ninth book in the series, preceded by "Bhakti and Karma Yoga," "Self-Inquiry," "Diet, Shatkarmas and Amaroli," "Samyama," "Asanas, Mudras and Bandhas," "Tantra," "Spinal Breathing Pranayama," and "Deep Meditation."

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas ties up all the books of the 'Enlightenment Series' 13 de noviembre de 2008
Por David R. - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda
This book rounds up and ties together all the books of Yogani's 'Enlightenement Series', a small set of short books which are possibly the best general treatment of yoga around.

The 'Enlightenment Series' are written largely for the purpose of self-directed spiritual practice, and can be incorporated into any spiritual discipline.

If you are a beginner in Yoga, these books are a great introduction, if you are experienced, they are a great review, and they would be helpful and clarifying also for those approaching yoga from a Religious Studies perspective.

'Eight Limbs of Yoga' ties all the other books together, and shows how all the practices of yoga belong to one whole. It also elaborates on 'self-pacing', which is important for the individual practicioner, practicing without a guru.

You can buy 'Eight Limbs of Yoga' alone and get a lot out of it. The best thing to do though is, I'd say, is to buy the whole set. They're great value! If you want to read my own recommendations on them individually, click on 'see all my reviews'.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Wonderful book outlining how AYP covers all the 8 limbs of Yoga. 20 de febrero de 2009
Por Shanti - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda
As many may know, Patanjali's Yoga Sutras lay out the famous Eight Limbs of Yoga. Yogani in this book has shown how AYP includes a broad range of effective practices that cover all of the eight limbs. These practices can be worked on in a self directed way and at a pace that is comfortable for each individual practitioner.

Yogani talks about the five basic principals of the human spiritual transformation, the first being attraction to truth or God expressed as desire (bhakti). Second is purification and opening of our nervous system. Third is the rise of inner silence, fourth is the ecstasy experienced as inner silence increases, and fifth is the union of inner silence and ecstasy.

He explains how the AYP practices use the natural abilities in us to experience these basic principles of spiritual transformation. Two of these of these are: The ability to apply our desire toward our chosen ideal (Bhakti Yoga), and the natural ability of the mind to move beyond itself by refining a thought/sound (mantra) which brings us to inner stillness again and again while purifying the nervous system (Deep Meditation). He covers 12 more of these natural abilities in the book (rise of witness state, kundalini awakening, cultivating and directing energy for higher functions, etc).

The practices include Bhakti Yoga, Deep Meditation, Spinal Breathing Pranayama, Mulabandha, Sambhavi Mudra, Asanas, Siddhasana, Yoni Mudra Kumbhaka, Tantric Sexual Techniques, Kechari Mudra, Uddiyana Bandha, Nauli, Dynamic Jalandhara (chin pump/thokar), Samyama, Spinal Bhastrika Pranayama, Diet and Shatkarma, Amaroli (urine therapy), Self Inquiry (emerging non-duality in daily living), and Karma yoga (rising service to others).

Yogani explains how self directed practices are done. First it is important to have a twice a day routine of sitting practices in place and be active and engaged in the world between the practice sessions. He covers what sequence practices are taken up and what is the sequence of practice to be followed each day (a helpful "practice chart" is included in the book), how to self pace wherein we adjust the practice time and number of practices we do at a time so that our opening and awakening of our nervous system is as smooth as possible. He explains the practices that are used to increase inner silence, like deep meditation and samyama, and the practices that are used to awaken ecstatic energy (kundalini) like pranayama, asanas, mudras, bandhas. The energy merges with the silence to give rise to ecstatic bliss which in turn automatically draw us toward the yamas and niyamas - evolutionary conduct and much peace and joy in daily living.

The days when spiritual teachings used to be kept a secret and handed down only to a select few is no longer practical. AYP believes in horizontal teaching (peer-to-peer) and all of the AYP methods are openly available that way. It is the responsibility of each practitioner to take charge of their own opening. And when the practitioner decides to teach, it is important to encourage people to start from where they are with useful methods suited to them, and not expect students to begin at the end where the teacher may be, a common failing of many spiritual teachers. Other things covered in this book are group meditation, group samyama, retreats, practices for children, enlightenment milestones, fitting practices into a busy life style. There is a lot in this small book!

Yogani did a wonderful job summing up all that AYP covers and is about. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to get an idea of the whole picture of what the path to enlightenment entails.

Another great book by Yogani. I have all of his books and find them to be concise and to the point. I recmomend all of Yogani's books for this reason. No unecessary histrionics or irrelevant opinions, just the information needed.

Formato: Tapa blanda
This final book in the Enlightenment series from Yogani describes the overall framework of practices that comprise Advanced Yoga Practices (AYP). This framework originally described by Patanjali is made accessible and usable to the modern reader and more importantly the modern practitioner who desires an up-to-date optimized and streamlined route to the ultimate state of expanded consciousness.

Highly recommended, especially in conjunction with the rest of the series. Also be sure to check out the online support forum for AYP.
