In this remarkable anthology, acclaimed Vedanta teacher Dave DeLuca presents 166 sacred passages from some of India's most revered yoga scriptures — the Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita, the Yoga Sutras, the Bhakti Sutras, the Astavakra Samhita, and the Srimad Bhagavatam — along with teachings by two of the most beloved yoga masters of the modern era, Sri Ramakrishna and Swami Vivekananda.
This combination of ancient wisdom and modern commentary makes Sacred Jewels of Yoga an invaluable introduction to the scriptural treasures of ancient India and a priceless resource for inspiration, illumination, and guidance.
The Messenger Editor's Notes:
This is truly a beautiful book. The passages, some very familiar to me remind me that the wisdom of India is special indeed. I spent some years involved in India's philosophy and culture and grew to have a great respect for it's sages and ancient texts. Dave Deluca has compiled so much of the beauty and wisdom of the East that it was hard to put this book down. Just reading it took me into a deep and profound meditation.
