Patanjali refers to his yoga as "Kriya Yoga": the "yoga of action with awareness." His Yoga-Sutras are universally considered to be among the two or three most important texts in the field of yoga. Until now, commentators have treated it as a philosophical reference, and have largely ignored its implications for yogic practice. They have also ignored the fact that it is also an esoteric work, and that only initiates, with sufficient prior experience, can grasp its deeper meaning.

This book fulfills a longtime need for a comprehensive introduction and commentary in the English language for one of Yoga's greatest source works: the Tirumandiram or “Holy Garland of Mantras,'described by Dr. Georg Feuerstein Ph.D “as important as the Yoga-Sutras of Patanjali, the Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga-Vashistha combined.” Tirumandiram is considered to be the greatest and earliest seminal work of the Siddhas, the greatest adepts of Yoga, and an encyclopedia of philosophical and spiritual wisdom rendered in verse form. It is a book of Yoga, tantra, alchemy, mysticism, mantra, yantra and philosophy. But without a commentary, it has been difficult for most English readers, unfamiliar with much of its underlying philosophical concepts, to clearly understand.

"Govindan's book provides an excellent platform for such a study. He writes from his own long experience of Kriya Yoga and a deep love and respect for the heritage of Yoga. Marshall Govindan's Kriya Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and the Siddhars is a valuable addition to the study of Yoga in general and the Yoga-Sutra in particular. I can wholeheartedly recommend it. In particular, the growing number of students of Kriya Yoga throughout the world will find his treatment indispensable, but others will benefit from it."

Persons new to Yoga are often surprised to learn that most of what we do in Yoga is intentionally the opposite of what our human nature would generally motivate us to do. Aside from the obvious examples, of remaining conscious when the eyes are closed rather than sleeping, or standing on our head rather than our feet, Yoga asks us to do the opposite of our natural social behavior. These are not only moral or ethical injunctions, but serve a very practical purpose. I will show you, with practical exercises, how the observance of the five yogic practices, known as the yamas will enable you to transform your human nature and to fulfill both your practical and sublime purposes in life. The yamas, are the social restraints prescribed by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras: The restraints are non-violence, truthfulness, non-stealing, chastity, and greedlessness. - Yoga Sutras: 2.30. By following the yamas, the practitioner’s mind is tamed and becomes a conduit for the unfettered experience of higher consciousness, from the Divine, the True Self. PDF Ebook $2.50.
