Foreword

Yoga Wisdom and Practice is filled with gems extracted from the eight volumes of my Astadala Yogamala, covering yogic knowledge (vidya) and experienced wisdom (buddhi) for those who love and live in yoga. Yoga came to me by chance. It soon made me accept it as a choice. Practising day in, day out to absorb and maintain the subtle transformations brought about by each asana and each breath, I re-acted and re-adjusted in each asana to experience the zenith — a single state of uninterrupted flow of attention and awareness.

We are all born with inquisitiveness. This makes us seach for ways to live this God-given life with honour and dignity. Though I initially practised asana and pranayama using the body and mind compartmentally, later I began to associate (samyoga) these differentiating movements to integrate (samyama) every part of the gross body with an even flow of energy. Such an intensive internal penetration of intelligence towards the causal body through the subtle inner body encourages the dormant consciousness to spread and touch the frontier of the soul - the inner layer of skin. Thus, yoga uses the body — the container — to touch the content — the soul. In order to make the soul "ring its bells" within each cell, | had to stay in each asana for a long period. Though | was explicitly involved in asana and pranayama, I knew in my heart of hearts that the other petals of yoga were implicitly involved and operating.

The body is finite and mortal, but the soul is infinite and eternal. I worked the soul (jivatma) to engulf its frontier — the body — by using the five elements of nature with their infrastructures, namely, earth, water, fire, air, and ether with smell, taste, form, touch, and vibration. Thus balanced evenly, the body is divinely united with the divine Soul as a divine union.

Tina, USA
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.
