About the Author

Swami Sivananda Radha (1911 – 1995) is the author of ten classic books on yoga, including Kundalini Yoga for the West and Hatha Yoga: The Hidden Language, and the originator of Ascent magazine. After being initiated by her teacher, Swami Sivananda of Rishikesh, India, Swami Radha returned to North America in 1956. She founded Yasodhara Ashram in Canada and the Association for the Development of Human Potential in the United States. Swami Radha dedicated her life to updating the Eastern teachings for the Western mind. By the time of her death at age 84, she had become one of the West’s most highly regarded spiritual teachers.

Format: Paperback
A succint and powerful ancient practice from the east of invoking light is brought to us with much care here. Given to Swami Sivananda Radha by the glorious Babaji, the Divine Light Invocation is an initiation into a more divine life. Wether you're interested in learning about the light invocation for the first time or revitilizing your practice please for the good of us all read this again and again. Invigorating every time this is among the top three most worthwhile books I have ever read. When I asked my precious friend Jan why she sleeps with it under her pillow the reply was 'it just makes me feel better that way." and I know what she means. If you only ever have ten books, let this be one of them!

This book is small enough to put in your pocket or purse, but big enough to change your life. It describes how to do a standing meditation practice where you visualize yourself filled with light, then open your heart and see this light protecting and blessing people you care about, or those in need, and even the souls of those who have died. I find the Divine Light Invocation a positive influence, even in events like world conflict, where I would otherwise feel helpless. The practice also helps me stay focused and centered. Clear, simple instructions! I highly recommend it.

Format: Paperback
This book describes the story how Swami Radha first received this practice from Babaji. It also has step by step instructions how to do the practice. It is a standing meditation which looks quite simple in its format but it can be a profound practice. My understanding of this practice is that it is like a shortcut in realization of the Self. This practice if practiced regulary and with concentration provides us with means to achieve this aim.
Swami Radha says that if we identify with our many different prsonality aspects which are constantly shifting we will stay confused. She also says that this practice can desolve our identification with the body and mind which is quite hypnotic. And if we do the practice with sincerity and diligence it will unable us to realize our devinity. She says that once we accept the concept of Higher Self, or soul or Inner Light, then we should idenify with nothing else but this source. She also suggests that identification with the Light within connects us to the divinity we share with others.
My conviction is that through the use of this practice we can build a spiritual foundation for ourselves in our daily life.
This book is also available in expanded version.

By Nigel S. on January 21, 2013
Format: Paperback
This slim, unassuming volume is unexpectedly RICH with valuable information regarding the author's experiences with her teacher Sivananda (a yogic mystic on par in my eyes to Yogananda) as well as her experiences with the ethereal non-material teacher Babaji. The topic of the book is a particular practice (see the title) taught to Radha early on in her life-long path. In my opinion this is a practice simplified and distilled that would overpower and eclipse many mystical practices. It even reminds me of a famous instructive prayer attributed to St Patrick. If you are ambitious to get started on working with Light as a yogic path - you simply cannot go wrong with this book. (The Kindle version is a quality reproduction - I have both)

I'm thrilled I bought this CD. Just listening to the ladies repeat the invocation early in the morning helps me manage any stress I might encounter thru the day. Repeating the mantra to myself has a profound effect.
