"The School of Yoga - Book 6" continues the amazing journey of exploration and enlightenment centered on Ashtanga Yoga, also known as the Eight-Limbed or Raja Yoga. Book 6 brings the Yogi to the 6th limb, or part in the 8 steps of realization of the Divine, or attaining the highest level of spiritualism man can obtain.
The 6th limb is Dharana, also known as Attention. A fundamental block in the construction of any Yogi, attention and focus, that sole purpose, is almost more important that proper position and speed. This book offers a deep understanding of Dharana and it Yogic Utilities and even how it melds and shapes a Yoga experience and life.
Though this series should be read in conjunction, author Anand Gupta has wisely offered glimpses and brief explanations of previous volumes, giving readers an overview of the Limbs and books you may not have read. Though hardly a replacement for the deep knowledge the books impart, this summary will allow those unversed a way to find their path on the journey, even if Book 6 is the first you lay your hands on.
