The modern lifestyle with its excesses and worldly desires, the constant need to be connected, and the rapid development in technology, has made stress and lifestyle-related diseases the norm. The need for meditation thus is more acute. Meditation calms the mind, brings focus and enhances the senses, resulting in a better quality of life and work. And with the right Mantras, meditation becomes a highly effective tool in unleashing the immense potential within oneself. This book from the Sivananda Ashram explains what meditation and Mantras are and how they can be effectively used to recharge oneself with divine energy, so that the tension of body and mind are gradually reduced.

The modern lifestyle with its excesses and worldly desires, the constant need to be connected, and the rapid development in technology, has made stress and lifestyle-related diseases the norm.Review:
(Note: I read another edition of this book. Apparently, this one should contain the translation and commentary on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, whereas what I've read did not. Since I haven't seen and read the Sutras, I'll comment only on the content of the copy I have studied - which should be the same less the Sutras.) This book deepened my understanding regarding spirituality and some aspects of Indian culture and mysticism. However, it is not an easy lecture, although I'm absolutely sure the original ancient Indian works are much more esoteric. Probably in the past the guru would have explained the esoterism, but these days people want it crystal-clear. Anyway, I've read it three times and I now understand it better. Obviously, it is directed towards (almost) total beginners, but as such it isn't very practical, because be talks about a lot of things, but only superficially, and this is the reason I rated it three stars only. The title is a bit misleading, for this is definitely not a meditation manual. He talks about concentration, yet with only one exercise or two and no gradual plan. --By Adrian S. on April 8, 2006
As the title suggest, this text is an excellent introduction to meditation, mantras, and yoga sutras. There are many meditation books and treatise in the marketplace, however a discourse from a great Swami - person who has experienced it, is essential. This is that book. The text is simple to understand and follow; ideally suited for beginners. I also highly recommend other books from Swami Sivananda and Sivananda society. I've found their texts lucid, easy to follow, and to the point. --By Akash Pai on April 10, 2012
As the title says, it's very heavy on meditation! I read this as part of my yoga teacher training program. It was fascinating. Parts of it were slower than others, but overall it's an amazing reference that I will continue to come back to. --By Elizabeth Haynes on November 10, 2013
