Introduction

Huston Smith, popular scholar and author on religion, term a yoga as ‘the limits of consciousness’. Today the world over, there is a resurgence of interest in this time-tested human practice. Indeed, according to a market study by yoga Journal in 2005, around 16.5 million people practiced yoga regularly in the United States alone, and an additional 25 million wanted to try the practice within the next year. Millions more Americans perform some kind of Eastern meditation- Buddhist, Zen or Hindu.

This growing interest in Eastern wisdom represents a hunger for a spirituality with soul. While most people familiarwith yoga know it was developed by Indian sages in ancient times, few are aware of its spiritual roots in the wisdom tradition of tantra. In this book, you will veture into the dynamic and enchanting world of this yogic path. You will learn how this holistic practice and wisdom philosophy can be a guide in cultivating yogic awareness, sacredness and love in everyday life.

Posture yoga is practice for its profound ability to enhance physical well-being, but the essential purpose of this practice is much more than achieving optimum health and fitness. In fact, yogic exercise also have a spiritual benefit: By increasing our flexibility, improving our posture and circulation, and especially by balancing our hormone secretion, they help us become more relaxed and peaceful. Combined with meditation, yoga exercise help us better realize our full human potential. The signifies the path of spiritual expansion and liberation that ultimately leads to the state of yoga, to spiritual union with our inner self. To be in harmony with our inner self, even in the midst of the chaos of daily life, is the real goal of tantra.

Towards an Integral Yoga Movement Even in the trendiest and most body- centred yoga studios in the world, people are now incorporating many aspects of this holistics and integral lifestyle. Hatha Yoga, the most popular form of physical yoga, is based on thousands of years of yogic experiments, and was further refined and written down in the Hatha Yoga Pradipika text by tantric yogis during the Middles Ages. And Bhakti Yoga, the yoga of devotion- the singing of devotional bhajans and kirtans- is another popular form of tantra that crystallized during the time of the great sage Krishna (circa 1500 BC), but the roots of this spiritual tradition go even further back into antiquity. This form of ecstatic, trance-induced spirituality has been widely practiced in India for thousands of years. Kirtan and bhajan concerts have become a familiar attraction at thousands of yoga studios and retreat centres, even in the West, thanks to musicians such as Grammy-nominated kirtan singer Jai Uttal and Popular chant-master Krishna Das.

There is a new movement among yoga practitioners today, a movement away from just focusing on yoga as a set of physical exercises towards a practice that integrates body, mind and spirit. Many of these contemporary experiments in holistic spirituality.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
