HASH(0x95fc4570) étoiles sur 5 Unfortunately disappointing, disorganized, and too extreme 15 novembre 2014
Par JGSD24 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Unfortunately I was very disappointed in this book. I found it to be too extreme, illogical at times, disorganized, repetitive, and didn’t cover the topic in a way that I enjoyed or found reliably informative. Other than learning a few new breathing exercises, after reading the book I do not feel very knowledgeable in the topic of pranayama. I think I would enjoy a book that provided a more all-encompassing view of pranayama (IE: its origin, different teacher’s / region’s views on the topic, specific exercises, what modern science has discovered about its benefits, etc.) rather than one teacher’s view on it and his assertations as to what pranayama is.

Sri Swami’s tone and choice of words is not one I’d recommend to follow. He talks of achieving “perfection” in various practices, and loosely connects things to achieving spiritual enlightenment or makes other loose connections in an attempt to make you believe you can achieve perpetual bliss on earth. He uses very extreme language at times and shares concepts that I believe are just fantasies.

Sample statements that I believe are loosely and/or not supported at all are as follows:

- “If you can control breath you can control all forces of the universe, mental and physical. The Yogi can control the omnipresent manifesting power out of which all energies take their origin….” (Page 79)

If my breath control would let me cure cancer, believe me I’d be doing it every second.

- “If the mind and Prana are both controlled one gets liberation from the rounds of births and deaths and attains immortality.” (Page 79)

Prove it, Sri Swami. Oh, and will achieving liberation from the rounds of births and deaths help me suffer less emotionally when someone close to dies?

- “Yogins by taking breath to the Brahamarandhra at the top of the head and keeping it there, defect the Lord of death, Yama, and conquer death”. (Page 80- 81)

How do I conquer death if I’m still going to inevitably die someday?

Some extreme language he uses that I do not enjoy is as follows:
- From practicing Sitkari, a pranayama exercises, Sri Swami says, “He becomes Lord of the Yogins. He is able to do and undo things. He becomes an independent monarch. He becomes invincible.” (Page 104)
- From practicing Bhaktrika, a pranayama exercise, Sri Swami says, “The practitioner will never suffer from any disease. He will always be healthy”. (Page 108)
- When talking about Pranic Healing, Sri Swami says one can talk to another person’s cells and command disease to leave. After providing the commands to the other person’s cells Sri Swami states “[The cells] will obey your orders. They too have subconscious intelligence”. ( page 112)

Unfortunately, these are just a few samples of the language and assertations that are made throughout the book. Ultimately, this limits the credibility I give to the author. It also capped the amount of emphasis I would place on his guidance for what I thought was the most practical and useful part of the book: the breathing exercises and the benefits each exercises he claims they provide. In my opinion, the guidance he provides for each exercise should be taken with a grain of salt, especially if extreme language (“must, always, never) is used as a recommendation. Overall I would not recommend this book to anyone interested in pranayama, especially as a starting point on the topic.
