Review of the Book
There is no book which can be as Indian as “Living with the Himalayan Masters” by Swami Rama. I had never heard about Swami Rama and discovered this book quite serendipitously. The journey of Swami Rama right from his birth to the hard lessons he learnt from some of the greatest sages in the himalaya’s is narrated in this book, Some of which are quite un-believable and It takes a little faith in him, do go through this book as a factual narrative, otherwise you are in to metaphysical fiction this can be entertaining read opening up your imagination to human potential.
Review of the You-tube discourse on Yoga Sutras by Patajani.
I have explored Yoga very superfluously in my youth. Reading the book, made me search for more on Swami Rama, and I stumbled on this humongous 13 hour discourse on the Yoga Sutras by Swami Rama in one of his camps. These discourses are indeed a treasure trove of well intended and ancient wisdom. There are total 86 video’s, it teaches the yogic way of living. Thanks to this, I have started doing pranayama regularly about 2/3 times a day. I highly recommend you to check this out, here is the link to the first video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7RiT7IJ617g&feature=youtube_gdata_player
