This is a large print edition of The Hatha Yoga Pradipika offering clear easy to read version. This edition offers text printed in fot size 14. Hatha Yoga Pradipika is a classical text describing Hatha Yoga. It is the oldest surviving text on Hatha Yoga. Swami Swatmarama, a disciple of Swami Goraknath, wrote the text, drawing upon previous texts and his own experiences. While the text describes asanas (postures), purifying practices (shatkarma), mudras (finger and hand positions), bandhas (locks), and pranayama (breath exercises), it also explains that the purpose of Hatha Yoga is the awakening of kundalini (subtle energy), advancement to Raja Yoga, and the experience of deep meditative absorption known as samadhi. Yogi Swatmarama was a 15th and 16th century yogic sage in India. He is best known for compiling the yoga manual Hatha Pradipika or Light on Hatha Yoga. Swatmarama maitains throughout the text that Hatha Yoga's true purpose is the arousal of the Kundalini, until perfection in Raja Yoga is achieved, i.e. liberation.
These are the details of Hatha Yoga as practiced by Matsyendra and Goraksha Mahayogins. This is not asana postures yoga but it includes that as the preliminary process. It describes a process which Shiva taught as kundalini manipulation for subtle body transformation with practical application of the raja yoga process of how to remaining introverted while being externally occupied.I did my best based on kundalini yoga and inSelf Yoga(tm) practice in this life, to expound the details given by Swatmarama Guruji, the author of the original Sanskrit text which we know as the Hatha Yoga Pradipika. Fortunately, I practiced kapalabhati/bhastrika pranayama breath infusion for forty years and then discovered that Swatmarama listed that breath technique as the very best for yogis who were interested in kundalini manipulation for subtle body transformation. I practice naad sound resonance meditation which he listed as being the very best contemplation procedure. In this book I reveal secrets which Swatmarama shared as well as my realizations about the same.
