Sample text

The working on mantra is so arranged that this void period is rightly adjusted to the intervening period, that is, the period between the throwing out of an image and the taking of a new one by the mind. In this way dhāraṇā is acquired with the help of mantra. This process has been fully dealt with in Mantra Yoga. Mind operating on the extraphysical plane is able to acquire knowledge of external objects without the usual means through the sense organs. Knowledge can be acquired pre- and supersensorially at a higher stage of concentration.

S. Goswami was remarkable for his outstanding personal achievements and for having presented astounding demonstrations of yogic bodily control in many locations throughout the world. He also shared with thousands of pupils the timeless experiences and values inherited from his own spiritual achievements in both Haṭha Yoga and Laya Yoga—two rather different yogic disciplines. The “Lion of Bengal,” as an admiring maharaja once liked to call him, was also an exceptional man of action, a yogi who dedicated about seventy years of his life exclusively to the regular practice, study, and investigation of the vast field of Yoga.

It has been my firm conviction that there exists a serious demand for a methodical and practical exposition of the Haṭha Yoga system, with a view to the acquisition of physical strength and mental harmony. I have been asked to meet this demand by people very much interested in this matter, by friends and pupils, and have finally decided to write a book based upon personal experiences and fundamental studies. This book is mainly based upon original works on Yoga in Sanskrit, the majority of which are only available in the form of unpublished manuscripts, but it is also based upon instructions that have been conveyed from teacher to pupil throughout generations for thousands of years.
