Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"George Feuerstein ably demonstrates the depth and profundity of Yoga as a spiritual discipline."—Spirituality & Health

"His writing is lucid and accessible, without sacrificing any of the scholarly substance earned through three decades of intensive study, practice, research, and writing."—Yoga Journal

Présentation de l'éditeur

Here is a comprehensive survey of the full breadth and depth of the 5,000-year-old Yoga tradition, emphasizing its potent philosophy and spiritual vision. Georg Feuerstein demonstrates that Yoga is much more than a system of physical exercises—it is a profound path of self-transformation that encompasses a range of teachings, practices, and sacred texts that can help us cultivate wisdom, balance, and inner freedom, as well as physical health.

Feuerstein is one of the few Western scholar-teachers of Yoga whose writing and teaching penetrate the full richness and depth of this ancient tradition. Here he offers a collection of essays touching on all facets of the discipline.

Topics include:

  • The different branches and styles of Yoga
  • The ethical teachings of Yoga
  • Yoga and vegetarianism
  • Meditation and mantras
  • Choosing a teacher
  • Tantric Yoga
  • The experience of ecstasy

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Yoga Teachers 1 juin 2011
this is a great book to get an overall understanding of yoga. We use it in our yoga teacher training and the yoga students also have enjoyed it. There are a couple of chapters which are a bit too full of information that is hard to process however most of the essays are great and thought provoking. Perfect for the person who wants to follow the yogic path in daily life.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Required reading for anyone who thinks they practice yoga 13 février 2007
Par Duff McDuffee - Publié sur
This book will wake you up to what yoga really is--a set of hardcore spiritual disciplines that lead to full liberation from suffering...if you practice long and hard and smart enough!

This book represents the best of academic writing. Written as a collection of very readable 2-5 page essays, it is as inspiring as it is informative. Georg never compromises his position that yoga requires intense practice and study to reach the final goal, nor does he lose sight of the integral nature of yoga sadhana (no 30 days to loose hamstrings here!).

Read this in a week and you'll know more about yoga than most so-called yoga teachers...and you'll be inspired to practice more seriously than ever, whether your practice of yoga involves the postures or not!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A treasure chest of yoga knowledge 28 avril 2012
Par Craig Shoemake - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is a veritable treasure chest of information, insight, ideas and inspiration for practice, contemplation and just about everything having to do with yoga.

Unlike the previous Feuerstein book I reviewed (The Path of Yoga), this is not an integrated text but rather a collection of essays and musings by the author. Even if you didn't know this, you would quickly suspect it since, while the sections of the book are arranged thematically (general orientation, ethics, practices, etc.), the "chapters" all have a self-contained feel to them. There is also the sense that many were originally part of some larger unit and so when they end they sometimes do so rather abruptly. You're ploughing into the meat of some topic, turn the page, and-wham!-you're on to the next "chapter." This can be a bit jolting, but not all the essays are like this-most have a fully rounded, finished feel to them-but it's often enough that you start expecting/bracing for it. Because the book consists of essays you will also get a fair bit of repetition which, for some people, may be annoying, but for others, who want to drum certain points/facts into their heads, may well be ideal. As for a more in-depth review of the book's contents, with a collection of essays, touching on highlights is the usual approach, and that's what I'll do here.

Clearly Feuerstein has thought a lot about Yoga. As noted, there is something of a"treasure chest" feel to the book; you never know what's up next until you turn the page. And while the vast majority of pieces aim at being informative, many are reflective as well, though only one can be truly called self-revealing. That would be "Crossing the Boundary between Hinduism and Buddhism via Tantra-Yoga," which describes Feuerstein's "conversion" (if that's the right word-probably not) from Hindu yoga to Buddhist yoga (ala Vajrayana). Easily the best of the reflective pieces is #62, "Faith and Surrender: A New Look at the Eightfold Path," a brilliant essay I would heartily recommend for multiple rereadings.

As a scholar though Feuerstein excels at dispensing information. He does this in breadth by touching on just about every conceivable application and type of yoga (I never even knew there was such a thing as buddhi-yoga!), and depth: for example, an eleven page essay on OM reveals this all-important seed mantra's rich textual and cultural legacy. A couple dozen regular volumes might be necessary to cover this much ground and there's no way every topic can be considered in depth; for that you'll have to seek other books. But wait! Dr. Feuerstein has most graciously already considered your predicament and provided an illuminating overview entitled "Introducing the Great Literary Heritage of Hindu Yoga"! An excellent little piece unto itself, an annotated bibliography of books is appended to it, citing quality tomes on general yoga, the Vedas, Brahmanas, Aranyakas, Upanishads, Patanjali, the Epics, Gita, Tantrism and more. All you incurable bibliophiles out there should do three prostrations in Georg's direction. (BTW, he lives in Canada.)

There's very little one can complain about regarding this book. Feuerstein is a writer of clarity and concision, thoughtfulness, depth and sensitivity, not to mention vast knowledge--the man may have read just about everything on the subject. The only, ONLY gripe I might have is a slight tendency-which, frankly, coming from the pen of a scholar is rather ironic-toward a sort of textual fundamentalism. For example, writing on the Mahabharata he repeatedly refers to the war the poem describes as the greatest ever fought on Indian soil and even speaks of "the godman" Krishna as a historical person. This kind of thing comes up more than once-and invariably caused my face to screw up in an incredulous squint-so I have to assume Feuerstein actually believes these things. Suffice to say, I would grant Krishna less historicity than Moses or Lao-tzu, and as for the battle, while I suspect the story has its roots in some historical event(s), I doubt its fidelity to facts in any way exceeds that of the Iliad or the romances of King Arthur.

That being said, buy the book! You won't regret it; Feuerstein's writings will lead you on to richer yogic horizons!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Deeper Dimension of Yoga is Up There! 9 février 2004
Par "learning130" - Publié sur
Georg Feuerstein has produced a large number of books. This is my all-time favorite, because it covers in essay form a vast territory. All the essays are highly readable and thought-provoking. Let's have more of this sort of anthology.

While there are many books on yoga, if you want to really understand the history, the underlining themes, the vastness of yoga, Georg Feuerstein's books are the way to go. Georg is by far one of the most accomplished, well written/researched yogi scholars in the English world - he knows his stuff in other words and he has the experience to back it up.

The Deeper Dimensions of Yoga basically delves into the different aspects of yoga that Georg's monumental Yoga Traditions book just touches on. It deepens the reader's knowledge on many of the major topic areas of yoga: from what makes a good teacher and the different practices yogis work with to the culmination of the Yogic Path itself. While there are many other books that go into greater detail over some of these topics, for a good overview and deeper understanding in general, I would say, The Deeper Dimensions of Yoga is a great place to start.

Serious yogins should read this fine book. Georg Feuerstein was one of the the best Vedic scholars of the modern world.
