Yet, as diverse as they seem, they share a common aim: the discovery of the essence of existence that can be found at the core of our being, and the liberation that comes from that discovery.
With this worthy goal in mind, Richard Freeman presents an enlightening overview of the many teachings, The world of yoga is astonishingly rich in its array of schools and practices. With this worthy goal in mind, Richard Freeman presents an enlightening overview of the many teachings, practices, and scriptures that serve as the basis for all the schools of yoga—hatha, bhakti, jnana, karma, tantra, and others. He shows how the myriad forms are ultimately related, and can even be perceived to make up a vast, interpenetrating matrix, symbolizing the unity, profundity, and beauty of the ancient tradition.
Richard's wide-ranging discussion includes the Upanisads and Samkhya philosophies, the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali, the eight limbs of astanga yoga, the process and purpose of hatha yoga, and much more. He also explores the role of the guru, chanting, meditation, and the yogic imperative of offering service to others.
All of this is applied to the actual practice, giving the reader the tools to digest and apply the wealth of information to daily life. The Mirror of Yoga will be a welcome resource to all yogis who wish to better practice the profound philosophy underlying their practice. To learn more, visit MirrorofYoga.

On the one hand, this is one of the best books on yoga that I have ever read. At a slim pages, the depth of it's content can not be found anywhere else in so small a space.

On the other hand, attempting to distill over forty years of practice and knowledge of yoga into such a small space seems a daunting task. So while the content of the book is excellent, the delivery of that content was not always optimal and could have used I had a tough time trying to write a proper review of this book. So while the content of the book is excellent, the delivery of that content was not always optimal and could have used some more refinement.
The general theme of the book is to try to find the root similarity or underlying pattern between all the different types and styles of yoga. On page 9 he writes, "The purpose of this book is not to make you a premature eclectic. It is not to confuse you with the great variety of yoga philosophies, traditions and practices you may encounter, nor is it to make you into an armchair enlightened being.
Instead it is to allow all of us to slow down a bit so that we can delve deeply into the subject rather than skidding along the surface side to side, from one school back to another. By the books concluding chapter, he largely succeeds in the stated purpose, yet the path taken to get there is not laid out well for the reader. The choice of topic and ordering of each succeeding chapter can seem almost random at times.
The content of first four chapters is excellent. It is in these beginning chapters that we are treated to a synthesis of the multiple meanings and viewpoints of what yoga is as taken from many angles. The concluding chapter of the book is also excellent. The other middle chapters in the book, go on to summarize and cover topics such as; The Bhagavad Gita, The Yoga Sutra of Patanjali, Samkhya philosophy, and the fundamentals of tantra.
While Sanskrit is used throughout the book, it doesn't feel overwhelming, as each Sanskrit word is given several possible English meanings. A glossary is also provided at the back of the book. Perhaps the most difficult chapter to digest is chapter five, the chapter on buddhi, which attempts to summarize samkhya philosophy. This is a very difficult topic to cover and it is here where the book starts to grind to a halt.
Many sections must be read over and over again as the number of foreign terms start to overwhelm the reader. One reoccurring theme from the book that stood out to me, and that I thought was covered well, was the topic of impermanence.
Over and over again we are reminded of the constant of change and the mind's attempt to grasp at impermanent objects as if those objects were permanent. They are not, and this is one of the root causes of our suffering. It is thought that one of the many things that an asana practice is meant to teach the practitioner is a visceral feeling of this impermanence.
By noticing the constant change of feelings and sensations that occur in the body while in the postures, we learn over time and by repetition the very nature of impermanence. Even the flow of moving the body from one posture to the next can be taken as a lesson for the body and mind of constant change. This topic is brought up throughout the book and was covered well. Overall, the book is deep, and it might take several readings in order to digest it all. There are times where you might feel as if the author has gone off on a tangent, and you might be scratching your head wondering how one paragraph relates to the previous one, or the next one.
I feel that some more effort could have been made on laying out the basic structure of the chapters, and how one topic leads into the next. Instead, at times it can almost feel like an endless brain-dump from the author. This is a minor complaint though, considering the vastness and depth of the content. However, this is the one sticking point that is keeping me from giving the book five stars.
As it is, the book must be read several times in order to finally get what he was talking about. I know that I do plan in reading it several times. And on that note, one way to judge a book, is by how eager you are to want to read it again, and in this instance, I rate the book high. On page 66 he writes, "Today we are very fortunate to be able to draw on the experience of millions of people who have inquired into their hearts and, in so doing, have developed yoga as a way of penetrating into the heart of reality.
And who is then able to return to the west, and largely disseminate that knowledge so that we in the west can digest it. Consider yourself lucky if you are fortunate enough to have the time read this book. View 2 comments. Aug 31, Deb Korch rated it it was amazing. I rarely give a book 5 stars. This one deserved every one of them. It was accurate and interesting. Apr 01, Crystal S.
