Lessons in Meditation
by Jyotish Novak
A COURSE IN YOGA
"You are about to embark on a marvelous journey, a journey to the unexpolored center of your own self. Along the way you will discover you have strengths and potentials you only dimly suspected."
"Yoga is an ancient science; so ancient, in fact, that its roots are lost in the dim reaches of time. We know that it goes back at least seven thousand years because of prehistoric stone tablets found at Mohenjo Daro in India depicting people in yoga postures. There is a continuous tradition several thousand years old of scriptural writings on yoga. And yet it is not merely some hoary philosophy left dusty and tattered by the passage of time. It is a living tradition! It has been practiced continuously and refined over centuries. In India every generation has had its saints and sages. In the twentieth century there have been several great yogis who have reached the highest possible state of awareness; Self-realization."
"..long before you experience these profound states you will find extraordinary benefits from practicing the lessons in this course. Physically, you will experience increasing vitality, flexibility, and strength. Mentally you will be able to work with more clarity and concentration. Your emotions also will benefit--you'll become more even-minded, learn to overcome negative moods, and develop attitudes which bring true happiness and well-being. You will rediscover a sense of peace and harmony with the world around you, and your capacity to give and receive love will expand until it embraces all places and every living thing. Finally, you will find a joy so profound that it will seem to form the very fabric of creation itself. Great truths lie within you at this very moment. You have only to still your restless thoughts to find all this and more."
