Description
About the Book

Nathamuni, a ninth century yogi and Vaisnavite saint, was an extra- ordinary person who revolutionized many customs prevailing at his time. Among his most important contributions was a text on yoga called the Yoga Rahasya. The title itself means "Secrets of yoga" and true to its name, this wonderful masterpiece offers many deep insights into the use, and applications of yoga.

Unfortunately this text was lost a few decades after he died and for many years, it was merely a historical fact that the text had once existed. There was no trace of this book until a very strange experience that happened to one of his direct descendants T Krishnamacharya, brought back to life, this great classic.

Regarded as one of the most influential yogi-s of modern times, T Krishnamacharya received the teachings of Yoga Rahasya as a young boy, in a strange situation in a town called Alvar Tirunagari Oil the banks of the river Tamraparani. This town hosts one of the most holy Vishnu temples and a very old tamarind tree, under which Nathamuni himself is supposed to have had the vision of his teacher Nammalvar, who taught him the secrets of yoga.

The revival of this great text brings to life the great yoga teachings of Nathamuni, and provides us valuable information on how to utilize the different tools that yoga offers to deal with different situations. This work formed an important source of reference for T Krishnamacharya's teaching, and has touched many people directly or indirectly.

I mportant concepts discussed in this classical text include:

* Importance of yoga for women

* Yoga for pregnancy

* Yoga for different stages of life

* Yoga as a therapeutic tool

Translator's note

When my father initiated me to the Yoga Rahasya in 1963, I had no idea that he had received the lost text, and that he was also a descendant of the author, Sri Nathamuni. Every day, he would recite the verses orally and would ask me to repeat them twice. Only later, did he explain to me the meaning of the text. Eventually he wrote the whole text in his own handwriting.

Looking back, it occurs to me that I did not take this text seriously enough, until I came to know through my father's explanations of other texts, such as the Bhagavad Gita and the Vedanta Sutra, how great Nathamuni was.

I consider it a great blessing to have this opportunity of presenting the Yoga Rahasya in Sanskrit, along with the English translations based on my father's explanations. I know this is not a word to word translation and it is my request that any errors may please be condoned.

I offer this work as a Guru Daksina.

Testimonials
I received my Manjushri statue today and I can't put in words how delighted I am with it! Thank you very much. It didn't take very long to get here (the UK) - I wasn't expecting it for a few more weeks. Your support team is very good at providing customer service, too. I must conclude that you have an excellent company.
Mark, UK.
A very comprehensive site for a company with a good reputation.

I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.

I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
Steven, USA
