by Paramahansa Yoganand

Yogananda sheds a clarifying light on the deeper meaning of the Bhagavad Gita's symbology. He shows how the characters represent the negative tendencies of the human ego pitted against the divine qualities of the soul, and how the science of Yoga helps to achieve the joy of material and spiritual victory in daily life. An inspiring and concise introduction to yogic spiritual truths. Yogananda explains the step-by-step methods of yoga meditation and right action to achieve a higher spiritual perspective. Features Paramahansa Yogananda's original translation of the Bhagavad Gita for the first time in sequential form.

by Paramahansa Yogananda

Yogananda's translation and commentary brings a unique and penetrating insight into this yogic text. This translation explains the Bhagavad Gita's deepest spiritual, psychological, and metaphysical truths of the allegorical story. Yogananda takes Lord Krishna's counsel to the warrior Arjuna and applies it to our everyday struggles with the human ego. Our greatest battle he explains, like Arjuna's, takes place within our own minds as we fight our doubts, fears, negative habits, self-defeating thoughts, and erroneous thinking.
Yogananda said, "The whole intent of the Gita is to align man's efforts on the side of dharma, or righteousness. The ultimate aim is Self-realization, the realization of man's true Self, the soul, as made in the image of God, one with the ever-existing, ever-conscious, ever-new bliss of Spirit."

philosophy, ethics, and practices for a modern spiritual life by Dr. Shankaranarayana Jois

Drawing from his personal experiences of yoga and insight into ancient Sanskrit texts, Dr. Shankaranarayana Jois connects yogic philosophy to how we approach food, work, education, relationships, and other conscious lifestyle choices to support our deepest longings for happiness, peace, and balance. Practical and insightful, The Sacred Tradition of Yoga begins with a clear and deep inquiry into the human condition, reminding us of true purpose of Yoga. The second half of the book focuses on the yamas and niyamas, the personal disciplines and social ethics of yoga. Throughout, Dr. Jois’ teachings honor ancient traditions and underscore the benefits we can gain from adopting a yogic way of life in the modern world.
