• The first translation of this great but little-known path of spiritual devotion written for the modern Western audience. • An insightful commentary aimed at making the path of love immediately accessible to Westerners. • A life-affirming and relationship-positive path of yoga. • Written in the spirit of the kirtans (ecstatic songs and dances) of Narada, sensitively translated by Prem Prakash. Bhakti Yoga, the path of devotion, is considered one of the primary paths for spiritual realization in yogic tradition. Its representative, Narada, is the embodiment of the enlightened sage who travels the universe spreading his sacred teachings. Unlike Jnana Yoga, the Yoga of Wisdom, the bhakti acolyte does not discriminate against material phenomena--for him, all phenomena are aspects of God. Within the context of Ananda, blissful love, the temporal is realized as the reflection of the eternal, and the soul is realized as the expression of God.

One of the greatest contributions of Ayurveda to true health is the understanding of individual constitution-what balances one person unbalances another. By marrying the sister sciences of yoga and Ayurveda, Mukunda steers away from an increasing tendency to 'medicalize' yoga therapy. Instead of offering prescriptive recommendations for specific medical diagnoses, he presents sequences of Vinyasa and pranayama suited to the various Ayurvedic body types. Yoga therapists and practitioners using this book can access a deeper level of preventative self -care, flowing in harmony with the seasons and attuning to the rhythm and balance of each individual. Enlivened by stories and wisdom teachings, "Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy" provides food for body, soul and spirit, guiding practitioners towards fulfillment of their highest potential well being.

Swami Chinmayananda's commentary on Narada Bhakti Sutra dances with the nuances of an ecstatic and enduring relationship with the Lord of ones heart that becomes the bed-rock of a devotees life. This divine love is all-consuming, yet purging and freeing in its impact. The devotee trusts the Lord like a friend, cherishes Him like a child and is faithful to Him like a wife. Where then is the need or the place for any other worldly relationship? Joy or sorrow, it is the Lord alone for him. He will play, pray, fight and frolic only with the Lord in his hearts shrine. Go for it! Get engulfed by a relationship that lasts lifetimes, riding on waves and giant waves of beatific beauty!
