From Chapter Six

The yogi should visualize a sublime ocean of nectar in his heart, with an island of jewels in its middle whose sand is made of gemstones. In every direction there are kadamba trees with abundant flowers. Bees and cuckoos buzz and call there. He should steady himself and visualize a great jeweled pavilion . . .


What the Critics are Saying

“I like this version because it is a simple, clear and easy to understand translation without any of the usual—often complex and sometimes biased—commentary. The only embellishments are the introduction which has a brief, but helpful background and synopsis, and a few photographs of the asanas.”

—Patty Pickle
Amazon.co.uk

 

“Mallinson’s translation of the Gheranda Samhita includes the Sanskrit Devanagari script paired with clear, succinct English verses. The translation is lucid, making the threads of the teaching easy to understand. . . . For illumination, Mallinson includes a collection of full-page photographs demonstrating the asana or mudra as described in the text. These photos are an asset to this version. . . . This new translation of the Gheranda Samhita is invaluable for students seeking an accessible entry into the written tradition of Yoga practice.”

—Felicia M. Tomasko
LA YOGA Magazine

 

“If you are a student of Yoga, this is a valuable source book and quite interesting reading, as well.”

—Joanna Daneman
Amazon.com

 

“The Gheranda Samhita is considered, along with the Hatha Yoga Pradipika and the Shiva Samhita, one of the three classic texts on Hatha Yoga. . . . Mallinson and the people at YogaVidya.com are to be commended for bringing this text to the attention of the modern Yoga practitioner since all other translations that I know of are out of print and hard to come by.”

—Dennis Littrell
Amazon.com

 

“A first-rate primary source for anyone seeking to better understand the teachings and postures of Yoga.”

Midwest Book Review

 

“Smooth and accurate, this translation of the Gheranda Samhita is a very welcome addition to recent work on Yoga.”

—George Cardona
University of Pennsylvania

—Scott Davis
User Experience Analyst


“On a side note, I absolutely love all of the YogaVidya.com books. The books are clean, elegant, and devoid of the usual commentary and admonitions. In truth, I had never realized how compact the Hatha Yoga Pradipika actually was, since all of my editions are chock-full of interpretation and advice!”
—Stuart Rice

“I like your books.”
—Pierre Couvillion
Santosha School


“I received the text, read it and loved it. Thank you for your service to the cosmos.”
—Steve

“YogaVidya.com has done a terrific job in making foundational yoga texts more accessible to the Western reader.”
