Yogacarya Sri T. Krishnamacharya regularly composed in Sanskrit, both in the form of prose and poetry. They would flow from him any time of the day or night.
One of his compositions is the Dhyanamalika which he wrote in 1971 in just one day. He gave this composition the title, 'Certain Yoga Disciplines to Prepare for Worship'. He conceived it as a guide to dhyanam.
Sri T. Krishnamacharya, basing his observations on Nathamuni's Yogarahasya, perceived that the ultimate goal of Yoga is to develop bhakti. If bhakti is not nurtured, then the practice of yoga will only lead to short lived happiness. Sri Krishnamanharya spoke and wrote eloquently about it.
Dhyanamalika, which consists of 34 verses, contains the essence of the teachings of the Yoga Sutra, the Bhagavad Gita, Brahma Sutra, the Upanisads, the Puranas and Karma Kanda.
This work is of great significance, especially in the apparent chaos of modern life, where there is so much confusion regarding the concept of dhyanam. This book will hopefully be a valuable guide to those who want to practise and teach dhyanam.
