Perfection of Yoga

There have been many yoga systems popularized in the Western world, especially in this century, but none of them have actually taught the perfection of yoga. In the Bhagavad-gita, Sri Krishna, teaches Arjuna directly the perfection of yoga.

Srimad Bhagavatam

Srimad-Bhagavatam (Bhagavata Purana) is a virtual encyclopedia of yoga, meditation and the mystic arts. It brings together in one complete source information that previously hundreds of books could not explain. This edition of the Bhagavatam, with elaborate commentary, is the most widely read and authorative translation available to the English speaking world.

"This Bhagavata Purana is as brilliant as the sun. Persons who have lost their vision due to the dense darkness of ignorance in the Age of Kali (Modern Age) shall get light from this Purana." (Srimad-Bhagavatam 1.3.43)oSpecial Features

Bhagavad-Gita as it is

The Bhagavad-gita is the main source-book on yoga and a concise summary of India's Vedic wisdom. Yet remarkably, the setting for this best-known classic of spiritual literature is an ancient Indian battlefield. At the last moment before entering battle, the great warrior Arjuna begins to wonder about the real meaning of his life. Why should he fight against his friends and relatives? Why does he exist? Where is he going after death? In the Bhagavad-gita, Lord Krishna, Arjuna's friend and spiritual master, brings His disciple from perplexity to spiritual enlightenment. In the course of doing so, Krishna concisely but definitively explains transcendental knowledge; karma-yoga, jnana-yoga, and bhakti-yoga; knowledge of the Absolute; devotional service; the three modes of material nature; the divine and demoniac natures; and much more. Bhagavad-gita As It Is is the largest-selling, most widely used edition of the Gita in the world.

The Higher Taste

The word vegetarian, coined by the founders of the British Vegetarian Society in 1842, comes from the Latin word vegetus, meaning "whole, sound, fresh, or lively," as in homo vegetus-a mentally and physically vigorous person. The original meaning of the word implies a balanced philosophical and moral sense of life, a lot more than just a diet of vegetables and fruits.

Higher Taste has great recipes, and all the ecological and moral reasons to become a vegetarian.

Coming Back

Since birth and death deal with the essence of our being, it is a subject of the utmost relevance to everyone.

Our reincarnation after death is a predetermined fact until we choose to break the bondage. First we must become open to the possibilities of life outside our empirical understanding.

Harvard biophysicist D. P. Dupey writes, "We may lead ourselves down a blind alley by adhering dogmatically to the assumption that life can be explained entirely by what we know of the laws of nature. By remaining open to the ideas embodied in the Vedic tradition of India, modern scientists can see their own disciplines from a new perspective and further the aim of all scientific endeavor: the search for truth."

Coming Back gives common examples from the Vedas that point to the truth of reincarnation and how we can make progress toward releasing ourselves from coming back.
