Review by Walter O. Koenig "Amoxtli"
This book is both profound and easy to understand.
It is valuable for persons knowledgable
and new to Raja-Yoga alike. In progressive
chapters beginning with an introduction and the
"eight steps" of Raja-yoga, to more complex
concepts such as Dhyana and Samadhi, everything
is explained with conciseness and ease. The
latter half of the book covers an Introduction
to the Yoga Aphorisms of Patanjali, here
Concentration is explained, both its practical
uses and its practice. In conclusion there are
also explanations of the Powers of the
Mind, Reincarnation and Discipleship. A
Pronounciation table and a Glossary are also
provided. All of these make this the best book by
far on Raja-Yoga. What really sets this
book apart however, is the direct manner in which
Swami Vivekananda addresses the reader.
The prose is concise, yet easy to understand.
After reading this you come away feeling
that you have had a conversation with a friend
who cares about you. A truly excellent book.
