Description

This small volume written by Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj, is appearing in print for the fifth time.

A study and, what is more important, diligent practice of the lessons, would convince the reader beyond all doubt that this small volume gives the essence of Yoga Sadhana in a most practical manner.

The simple, lucid, direct and forceful style that characterizes Sri Swamiji's writings is born of more than a quarter of a century of Tapas, meditation, intense practical application of Yoga Sadhana, and sympathetic understanding of the aspirant's problems that Sri Swamiji Maharaj has been solving by his spiritual preceptor ship to thousands all over the world.

May all the readers be spiritually illumined and be blessed with this unique book coming from one great saint.

FROM INTODUCTION CHAPTER IN THE BOOK:

Who is Mokshapriya?

Mokshapriya is a young seeker after Truth. He is a practical illustration of Sri Swami Sivanandaji's principle that one should renounce the world in youth. He has negatived the temptations of the flesh, the beckoning of Mara or Satan. He is a very quiet and peace-loving Sadhaka; and he has controlled the innate Rajas in man. He loves seclusion, and has set at naught the theory that man is a sociable animal. He is a thorough-going introvert; he has blinded himself to the false glittering of the sense-objects. He is convinced of the futility of seeking after anything mundane, and of the glory of seeking after a Brahma Vidya Guru. He has, therefore, resorted to the Bhumandala Sad Guru Sri Swami Sivanandaji; and today he shines in the lovely apparel of Tapas, Svadhyaya and Guru Seva.

Mokshapriya, in his (previous) life, comes of a very respectable family of Hyderabad. He is a Graduate in Mathematics. He stood first in the whole State. His teachers loved him; he captured their heart by his studiousness, keen intelligence, quick grasp and intense application. Even as a student he was considered a genius by his professors. He worked for sometime as a Mathematics teacher; and all students were eager to be his pupils! Then he gave up the job and devoted all his time to the study of philosophy and Yoga. This took him to the feet of Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj.

Glory to Sri Mokshapriya through whom Sri Swamiji has given to the world his priceless Ananda Gita, even as Lord Krishna gave the Gita through Sri Arjuna. May all young men follow his example and become Mokshapriyas!
