However, this is not light reading. In fact, as I was reading it I experienced familiar ache, that wish that I were reading and studying along with another so we could discuss the content. There is such a wealth of information in this book that I know most of it completely escaped my comprehension. This is why I say that this book is one that must be read and reread.
Nevertheless, there is enough accessible truth here that someone who is ready to go deeper in the philosophy of yoga can still walk away with something and someone who well-versed in yogic thought will learn something interesting as well. The content is challenging in the way that spiritual truth should be challenging, inviting the "listener" to grow into the truth rather than sit idly.
Read through once, this book is an invitation for more and read only once I can't imagine any open minded reader wouldn't be moved to change. Read more than once, no doubt the effects of what Ravindra shares would ripple endlessly, carrying the reader further and further each and every time. It is not often I come across a book with this much potency and I'll eagerly read anything else Ravi Ravindra has written.
