On the practice of raja yoga taken from Swami Vivekananda's original lectures in the United States.
Raja Yoga is about the royal road to God through the practice of meditation. It is primarily meant to enable us to solve our mental problems through meditation. When all is said and done, the solution to our worldly problems requires a spiritual solution. This is the universal teaching of all saints and prophets in all countries in all times. Finding a worldly solution is an endless process that causes more problems than it creates. The spiritual solution goes to the root of our problems in worldly existence.
We sell both the American and Indian edition. The Indian edition is of course cheaper with decent quality, the American edition is larger, better quality paper, and the type is larger and easier to read. The actual copy is mostly the same, but the American edition was edited by Swami Nikhilananda and is easier to read than the Indian edition.
Excellent book. Not long, but packed with information for those aspiring to use the path of kriya yoga to hopefully reach self realization. May everyone reading this book and doing the requisite sadhana attain that state.
Wonderful quality of writing, clear and concise language.
