Book Review - The Perfection of Yoga

I can't say I found this useful or enlightening.

The title really belies the content of the book. I thought it was going to be about yoga, but it's more about meditation - or maybe us modern folk have got out terminology really mixed up.

I always find it difficult to read Hindu books because it's never straight forward. This book is no exception. The yoga or the meditation presented here is always wrapped in religious rhetoric. It's like every book of this nature is designed to inculcate devotion to a deity as opposed to what you expected, which in this case is yoga.

The book is always talking about Krishna and his various names, and how this dude Arjuna figured out yoga in one hour on the battlefield. That's all great - but I really wanted to to learn about how to get flexible.

It's an interesting read because I learned a little more about Hindu mythology, but I don't like the bait-and-switch aspect of these books.

If you want to learn more about yoga, I suppose go over to your local yoga studio - I reckon you'll learn more.
