Book Review: Fundamentals of Yoga

This manual could, quite possibly, be the spark that ignites the revolution of higher mind integration. The title, Fundamentals of Yoga, may seem a bit narrow to live up to my elevated claim but if you investigate the rich content in this book, you will surely understand why I consider it so. First of all the author, Rammurti S. Mishra, M.D is very worthy of a proper introduction. A prolific author on the science and philosophy of Yoga, he combined the universal message of these teachings with his deep knowledge of both Eastern and Western medicine and psychology. His areas of specialty ranged from Ayurveda (the ancient eastern practice translates to “Life science”) to modern psychiatry and neurosurgery. In his clear and concise manual, he manages to squeeze and refine an incredibly abundant amount of information, which has been accumulated over millennia and stood true through rigorous scientific tests and research, into what is known as, “The most authoritative and complete manual on the theory and practice of Yoga available anywhere.”

Yoga is the function of enlightenment. Enlightenment is the constant realization of inner peace and happiness. The practice of Yoga goes well beyond stretching your physical body (or, more accurately, well within) and helps you to experience your Self as pure and unlimited energy, which is the most natural state. Of coarse, as this ideal is achieved with much practice, the preliminary effects of consistent yoga practice include cure of all physical and mental disease (dis-ease), control of your mind, clarity of your mind,  and tone, strong, and perfect well functioning physical body. Don’t these claims seem outrageous or at least over exaggerated? Get Rammurti S. Mishra’s Fundamentals of Yoga, to experience the integration of YOUR higher mind along with all the benefits mentioned here and more. You will come to understand that the ideal state of being (inner peace and happiness) is the most natural and is easily achieved with easy to understand and scientifically proven techniques.  Then you will see, as I do, that as more of us utilize our minds that everything other than peace, happiness, and fulfillment will either disintegrate or transform into its true expression, sparking the collective evolution of consciousness. Will you join me?
