About the Author

Yogani is the author of the Advanced Yoga Practices (AYP) system, including more than a dozen Instructional Titles available in Paperback, Kindle eBook and AudioBook editions, covering all aspects of Full-Scope Yoga Practice. Since 1970, he has crossed the lines between many traditions, developing an effective integration of methods including Deep Meditation, Spinal Breathing Pranayama, Hatha, Kundalini, Tantra, Self-Inquiry, and more. It is a flexible, scientific approach rather than a rigid, arbitrary one, and open to public scrutiny, as all spiritual knowledge should be nowadays. He has no desire for guru status - only to have the joy of making a small contribution to helping the disciplines of spiritual practice become open to everyone. He wishes to remain anonymous, preserving a quiet life in practices. AYP is not about the author. It is about all who long for knowledge.

Format: Paperback
Yogani has really outdone himself this time. He has done a great job covering the basic technique of Samyama, including adding new advanced applications of this age old technique that has been surrounded by mysteries and taboos. Samyama is a yoga technique in which the inner silence that is cultivated during deep meditation is made to expand outwards, which in time can lead to small and big miracles happening spontaneously in our every day life. If Samyama is practiced correctly, it can not be used negatively or misused for personal power. The siddhis or personal powers are achieved as a by product of this practice. Since divine inner silence is required to make Samyama work, it is almost impossible to misuse this powerful technique. That's why Yogani calls it "morally self-regulating."

I have followed the basic Samyama techniques described in this book by Yogani for almost a year and the personal experiences have been profound. I have felt expansion of inner silence during practice which has also flowed into my everyday life. I have also used Samyama with my prayers and healing and the techniques described in this book does enhance both. Also, as described in this book, I have started applying Samyama technique to my asana routine and this is helping me get into my postures with ease and also started using the Cosmic Samyama which has helped balance the energy in me and helped me work with my crown chakra without discomfort.

A very well written and informative book indeed!!!!!

Format: Paperback
Yogani's most recent book "Samyama - Stillness in Action, Siddhis and Miracles" has the most thorough coverage of this ancient Yoga technique that I have found. It can be practiced successfully with just a slight emergence of inner silence, which is cultivated by deep meditation, described in an earlier book of his popular Enlightenment Series. The time one needs to set aside daily is very minor, only about 10 minutes or less, and could therefore fit into anybody's schedule.

Samyama could be seen as a crystallization in the outer world of the practitioner of the inner stability and harmony gained through meditation. The implications of this process are huge, even if one only sees it as one's life coming into more order, but often people talk about miracles happening in their lives as well. Yogani doesn't stop, however, with just describing the technique itself, how to practice it and how it works. Another very important aspect of Samyama, as with all Yoga practice, is the science of self-pacing. He teaches us in detail how to moderate our practice to avoid getting too much too soon, which could be overwhelming.

Considering the small size of the book (only about 100 pages), it goes even further however, to go into Samyama and its relation to the rise of the Active Witness, Yoga Nidra, Asanas (yoga postures), the Samyama Sutras of Patanjali, relationship of inner silence and ecstasy, and finally Enlightenment. I would much recommend it!

In this book Yogani explains in detail the technique used throughout the ages by Yogic Masters to perform Siddhis or miracles. This is a fascinating book that is a treasure to read. Nowhere else will you find the level of detail and understanding of this ancient yogic method revealed in written form. This book is a must read for anyone treading the path to self mastery.

Format: Paperback
If my title sounds a little over the top, I can only tell you from my own experience, after reading and practicing Yogani's first book "Deep Meditation" and getting a taste of Inner Silence that Samyama-Cultivating Stillness in Action,Siddis and Miracles is in fact a miracle in that it's showing me how to take "Inner Silence" out into the world in everyday life. Wow! What a read. I highly recommend Yogani's entire Enlightenment Series books.

What is not to like about this book, if you are ready for its instruction? The writing is so descriptive and specific, and yet very readable. It is though the gentleman is speaking to the reader personally.
And it is not a 'read once and put it down' type of a book. It is for continuous guidance and instruction as you pace yourself and make the practice your own. And speaking of practice, for me, the results were almost immediate, and more than what I expected. I thought it would take 'forever' to see something in the outer world. But I am more at peace. My home life is more at peace. Issues I cannot physically resolve are miraculously transforming themselves. That is not an accident, or coincidence. That is stillness in action! So, go at your own pace, make it light, make it fun and your spirit will be more willing to follow along. At least in my opinion.

I really enjoyed Yogani's book "Samyama - Cultivating Stillness in Action, Siddhis and Miracles", I think it is an excellent read and essential for anyone on the path who is dedicated to liberating themselves.

This was my favourite of Yogani's "Enlightenment Series Books" as it goes far more extensively into material and methods pertaining to the practice of Samyama than has been published before by Yogani or any other spiritual teacher (to my knowledge) on the subject.

Like all of Yogani's writings, it is well written, clear and easy to understand. I finished it within a few days and it has deepened my meditative practices considerably. The "Cosmic Samyama" practice has been a boon for me and has accelerated my inner expansion in profound ways.
