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!!!!!
