The author, known as M, continues to make the elements of Eastern Yoga accessible to the Western mind. This is done without forcing us into postures or poses that won’t benefit us. The concepts and ideas are presented in a way that we can grasp intuitively rather than intellectually.
In this fashion we may come to realize the true yoga that cannot be learned at a gym or a university, for it has little to do with physical poses or intellectual concepts. Written in the 1930’s, this book picks up where the theosophy of Mme. Blavatsky left off and is a segue into the Gnosis that is later introduced by Samael Aun Weor in the 1950’s.
The author is a gifted writer, which makes the material seemingly easier to grasp. But on the second or third reading one is compelled to slow down and try to comprehend it in a deeper fashion. I look forward to reading it again.
