About the Author

Born in Maryland in 1862, he began working life at 15 in his parent’s grocery store. He married at age 27, and became a successful attorney in Pennsylvania. However, stress and over-strain brought him to a physical and mental breakdown that ended in a financial disaster. He looked for healing and in the late 1880’s he found the principles of New Thought, and in applying them he restored his health, mental vigor and material prosperity. He began writing articles on the truths he had discovered. His “A Mental Science Catechism,” appeared in Charles Fillmore's ‘Modern Thought’ in 1889. By the early 1890’s he moved to Chicago, then a major center for New Thought, and became an active promoter of the movement as an editor and author. He wrote his first book, Thought-Force in Business and Everyday Life, in 1900, a series of lessons in personal magnetism, psychic influence, thought-force, concentration, will-power, and practical mental science. Soon after he met Sydney Flower, a well-known New Thought publisher, and in December 1901 he became editor of Flower's New Thought magazine (until 1905). He wrote dozens of articles in the magazine; and later on, he was a regular contributor to Elizabeth Towne’s Magazine, Nautilus. Throughout his subsequent career, Atkinson wrote and published over 100 different books, some under his own name and many under pseudonyms such as Yogi Ramacharaka, Theron Q. Dumont, Theodore Sheldon, Magus Incognito, Edward Walker, Three Initiates and Swami Bhakta Vishita. Among the first to develop the concept of Law of Attraction, Atkinson is considered, together with Orison Swett Marden and Wallace Wattles, the masters of self-development and positive thinking, and the real promoters of New Thought, a movement that came very much to life again with the Millennium He died November 22, 1932 in Los Angeles, California , after 50 years of successful career in law, business, writing, occultism, and a life surrounded by mysteries, including his own death. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

This paperback contains 12 lessons (266 pages) on Gnani ( a Sanskrit word meaning knowledge, cognizance, wisdom also transliterated as jnana or gyana)yoga. It was first published in 1906 in Great Britain. The title page describes the work as giving the "highest yogi teachings regarding the absolute and its manifestations". By this it means the principles by which the spiritual creation, evolution, and involution of the world and us happens mentally.After reading it I would not disagree with this claim. In the text there are a lot of rational arguments for monism as a theology and philosophy. There is an explanation of the philosophical basis for the Eastern religious doctrine of karma. This is good and helpful supplimentary material for those studying the fourth chapter of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. There is a clear discussion of some of the ways spiritual creation occurs inside of all of us and each of us (the many to the one and the one to the many). I believe I have benefited by my reading and study of this book and I plan to refer back to its clear presentation of this difficult subject matter in the future. I think there is a good possibiity that if more people understood the teachings in these lessons we would all be happier.

This is a well written book explaining the concepts behind Gnani Yoga - some you will recognize as very similar to other Yogi paths - others to be succinctly unique to Gnani. All of it very educational to the inquiring mind.

Gnani or Jnana Yoga is called the yoga of wisdom which attempts to make clear the most important and highest teachings. Gnani Yoga deals with such questions as"What is Reality" and and "The Riddle of the Universe". The basic premise of the book is that there is "One Reality" from which all things flow and that there is "One Life". Atkinson states that the "Absolute" cannot be defined because it is beyond all qualities and is incomprehensible to man; However, Atkinson states that the "Absolute" has manifested itself in relativity, namely in different life forms including man. This is one of the most interesting books that I have read. The author takes you on a step by step journey explaining his yoga philosophy in very specific terms. His philosophy is compelling and he explains more of the cosmic and spiritual aspects of Gnani Yoga which most traditional yoga books don't broach. Although I am not sure I agree with all aspects of his philosophy, Atkinson has opened up my mind to other possibilities. I believe this can serve as an excellent resource book which can be re-read and studied further in the future.

This review is for the Angelnook Publishing Book.

I loaned out my old copy and never got it back, so just bought a new copy....does that tell you how much I like this book?

I've read my share of these type of books, and this one is at the top of my list with Angelnook Publishing Books!

If you believe that changing your thinking will change your life, that we can control our thoughts and by doing so improve our over all circumstances, you'll find this book extremely helpful.

I must say one of my favorite books on this topic, I was very very surprised with this book. The book and chapter selection is nice and WAY more than I ever expected. I definitely did not expect to find such book treasure.

I would recommend it for anyone.

Anybody want to understand creation of Universe, Life ...and what not, read this book, keeping for a while, any inherited belief apart from intelligence (Any way, what we really believe on? We believe on something of which we know nothing about. There is no need to believe if we already know.).

Love all of Atkinsons books written by him or (as some say) under the name of Yogi Ramacharaka. I have read several of his books and do not believe they were all written by same guy. Love them all though. Fantastic insight for one who is on the path!
