Finally a plain English introduction to the world of yogic meditation and relaxation : A simple Nuts and Bolts Guide to Meditation and Relaxation
This booklet outlines the basics, drawn from across a number traditions. It doesn't try to say that this is the only right way as some dogmatic tomes do, rather it recommends an experiential try it and judge for yourself approach.
The meditations are all simple and easy to do. Background information explaining yogic anatomy and terms that might be needed to help the practitioner further their interest are provided. While I respect Sanskrit as a beautiful and ancient language I am aware that it deters many from this path. With that in mind I try to explain the system using language people know while giving sufficient terms so that the curious can go looking for further information.
The booklet is well suited for those who want to know how to do meditation without the usual overload of religious doctrine. The spiritual side is still there but it is presented as a way of using meditation. Its your choice whether you use the meditations to simply relax and find inner peace or to start a spiritual journey to uncovering the oneness that is always present within us all.
