Hatha Yoga Pradipika – a guide to Hatha Yoga

Posted on | July 29, 2010 | 3 Comments

Hatha Yoga Guide ebookHatha Yoga Pradipika by Yoga Swami Svatmarama with foreword by B K S Iyengar and commentary by Hans Ulrich Rieker is a fundamental book on the theories behind Hatha Yoga. You will find only a few positions here. From the foreword by B K S Iyengar:

“Hatha yoga, or hatha vidya (the science of hatha yoga) is commonly misunderstood and misrepresented as being simply a physical culture, divorced from spiritual goals. Hans−Ulrich Rieker shows the error of this idea by explaining the changes which take place, through the practice of hatha yoga, in the practitioner’s body, mind and self. He makes the reader aware of the subjective transformation that occurs as the consciousness penetrates inwards towards the Self, and as the Self diffuses outwards. He shows that hatha yoga is not just physical exercise, but an integrated science leading towards spiritual evolution.”
