Yoga—Union with Reality, at first glance, ponders the truths concerning the realization of the absolute in a very simple, straightforward synthesis of Yoga.
Like the Śrīmad-bhagavad-gītā, this wonderful work deals with the yogas of action, devotion, knowledge, kuṇḍalinī-yoga, mantra-yoga, and many more.
With very systematic, scientific and Vedic lore, like divine music from the holy Himalayan mountains, the book brings the lofty message of God-realization.
It puts a spotlight upon the simple spiritual practices, or sādhana, that grant liberation. The first sādhana is to eradicate negative, unspiritual qualities and cultivate positive, spiritual qualities; the second is to constantly remember God in the midst of all vyavahārī (day to day) activities and the third, to dedicate all your activities at the feet of God.
Though this book is a pot of nectar of the divine, still the author makes us feel most humble by conveying that what we know is like a few grains of sand on the ocean’s shore. And what we desire yet to know is like the vast ocean itself.
So, in order that we may walk in the light of the knowledge of this great work of Rev His Holiness Avadhūta Bhaktivedanta Yogacharya Śrī Ramakrishnananda Bābājī Mahārāja, which is like a bright torchlight, we recommended this book to one and all who are treading the path to realize the absolute in this very birth.
Yoga—Union with Reality will inspire a great many future generations to lead a life divine.
God Bless you.
