This is a terrific thread, thank you. By posting this topic, you are allowing the masses at ATS to have access to this wisdom and knowledge they have
been denied for so long, or are robbed of money by impostering gurus to learn. Knowledge was always meant to be free. It does not belong to any single
person, it cannot be copyrighted, it is ever present and all encompassing and eternal and the right of all.
I got your u2u, but I did not have any e-books to share at the time. I have across some very interesting ones recently, I hope you find them an
This is a book called Falung dafa, which was a best seller in China, and it completely free. It teaches techniques of spiritual cleansing, as well as
spiritual self defence, supernormal abilities, and opening 3rd eye Charka. You can even attend workshops in your nearby area for free, and will get

Now, the sutras, which means formulas, are written in short forms and they have expositions and commentary. Do, you remember, the topic I authored
recently - "vedic physics" that was covering the Vaiseshika sutras, as in vedic physics. This is covering the yoga sutras, and is as complete and as

The latter link is good, it links you to more than 50 different english translations of it and gives you some short reviews.
I am not sure if the Bhagvad Gita has been mentioned, but I strongly recommend this. I was meaning to get Swami Yogendra's translation on Amazon,
it's got glowing reviews from everyone there. I wonder if anyone here has got it.
Here are some links to a full english translation of the Bhagvad Gita:
I am quite pleased that this knowledge is finally being adopted by us, and we come from all walks of lives, belief systems, religions, creeds,
nationalities. It is great that so many of us are recognizing that knowledge(veda) knows no religion, cast, creed, sect or any denomination. Anyone,
anywhere in the universe has a right to it.
