Clearest explanation of Raja-Yoga available 12. April 2001
Von Walter O. Koenig - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is both profound and easy to understand. It is valuable for persons knowledgable and new to Raja-Yoga alike. In progressive chapters beginning with an introduction and the "eight steps" of Raja-yoga, to more complex concepts such as Dhyana and Samadhi, everything is explained with conciseness and ease. The latter half of the book covers an Introduction to the Yoga Aphorisms of Patanjali, here Concentration is explained, both its practical uses and its practice. In conclusion there are also explanations of the Powers of the Mind, Reincarnation and Discipleship. A Pronounciation table and a Glossary are also provided. All of these make this the best book by far on Raja-Yoga. What really sets this book apart however, is the direct manner in which Swami Vivekananda addresses the reader. The prose is concise, yet easy to understand. After reading this you come away feeling that you have had a conversation with a friend who cares about you. A truly excellent book.

A priceless book... 14. November 2001
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Imagine a book that could change your life forever, for so little money. The amount is just secondary consideration, given the concept of Raja Yoga.
About the author:
Swami Vivekananda, one of the few philosophers who lived by what he taught (i dont want to use the word preach here), gives an authoritative commentary on RajaYoga - one of the four main yogas (the others being Jnana Yoga, Karma Yoga and Bhakti Yoga). The other 3 yoga books are basically a series of lectures by SV. But Raja Yoga is more than a lecture. Its roots are actually in Patanjali's Yoga Sutras. There are several good translations of YS, but SV's is the first (translated in mid 1890s when he was in Thousand Islands, NY) and the most comprehensive.
The book:
The first part explains the concept of Raja yoga. The second part is verbatim translation of YS with sanskrit text and additional commentary. The sutras by themselves reveal little meaning to a beginner. But when it is reflected from the minds of great people like SV, they reveal a deeper and significant meaning and suddenly everything becomes clear; the perspective of life has shifted a bit and one gains more confidence.
I can not stress much of the value of the book in a single review, Raja Yoga is a companion to life. It is not limited to any particular person or religion. Anybody, even an atheist or communist can practice it. Raja Yoga is a set of principles that any man can follow to the "ultimate liberation". You dont have to practice all the principles. Just look at the effects of one of the principles - namely Asana (roughly = yogic postures) - yields in ones life. Yoga transforms a man. For eg, SV explains the difference between the "yogic sleep" and ordinary sleep. A thief goes into ordinary sleep and wakes up as a theif. But in yogic state a thief goes into, comes out a sage.
This book is not for reading and adorning the bookshelf, but for thinking for oneself and determining a path of life.

The Illuminated Manuscript 2. Dezember 1999
Von rareoopdvds - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Vivekananda's book, Raja-Yoga, is one of the best books on the subject; beautifully written in a clear and concise manner. Although, like most books on Raja-yoga which discuss philosophies as well as practices, what is most beneficial about Vivekanada's book is his emphasis upon the effects of Raja-Ygoa. According to Vivekananda, when one masters the powers of concentration, then reads the experiences of the enlightened, then one will then take on that same state. When one knows in which direction to go, and can predict the state one is about to enter, then one has mastered concentration.

Von C. GANDHI - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Raja Yoga is the King of Yogas.

This book really enables you to understand how your mind processes information and how to conquer your own nature to exercise free will.

The author Swami Vivekananda was both an enlightened soul and an elequent speaker. His words are powerfull!

A Definitive Work for the Serious Yoga Practitioner 10. Dezember 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I consider this book by Vivekananda to be a definitive work on the subject of Raja/Ashtanga/Kundalini Yoga. It is a must-read for any serious practitioner of true, spiritual yoga.
The first part of the book is comprised of several lectures delivered over 50 years ago by Swami Vivekananda to his classes in New York, and the second part is, to use his own words, a "rather free translation" of the Aphorisms of Patanjali.
Though Vivekananda's writing style strikes me as rather philosophical and high-minded at times, he does provide an accurate and valuable map of the eight stages of yoga (also called 'ashtanga' yoga). He outlines the correct approach to pranayama and meditation and accurately explains the more advanced meditation practices of Dharana, Dhyana, and Samadhi. The latter is something I've noted other authors tend to either avoid entirely or, if they do attempt to explain it, make mistakes that indicate they don't really know the purpose of such states or what goes on in them.
What I found most reassuring about this book is that Vivekananda makes no mistakes in regard to the functions, methods and purposes of the various stages of yoga. His descriptions and explanations match my experiences completely and I therefore feel he can be relied upon to steer the intelligent reader in the right direction.

What I didn't find helpful were his digressions, primarily in the first part of the book, into what seem to be debates on obscure points of yoga philosophy. He often seems to be debating with unseen opponents, or perhaps trying to distinguish himself from other philosophies and schools of thought popular in his day. I found some of his reasoning in this regard clearly flawed though, or at least lacking the consideration of other, more apparent, possibilities. Perhaps this was due to the texts being transcriptions of on-the-spot lectures instead of carefully considered and worded essays.
In any case, the practical information Vivekananda openly outlines in this book on yoga and its methods is clear and, in my opinion, highly worthwhile. I recommend this book for the serious yoga practitioner.
