The Nectar of Devotion – The Complete Science of Bhakti Yoga
Author: His Divine Grace A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
Format: PDF & EPUB
This book, The Nectar of Devotion, is a complete, step-by-step handbook for attaining perfection in bhakti-yoga of the highest love. Enriched by hundreds of factual personal examples, The Nectar of Devotion explains the practical techniques of bhakti-yoga, both basic and advanced.
Here is a quote from the preface of The Nectar of Devotion:
“No one can live without loving someone else. This propensity is present in every living being. Even an animal like a tiger has this loving propensity at least in a dormant stage, and it is certainly present in the human beings. The missing point, however, is where to repose our love so that everyone can become happy. At the present moment the human society teaches one to love his country or family or his personal self, but there is no information where to repose the loving propensity so that everyone can become happy. That missing point is Krishna, and The Nectar of Devotion teaches us how to stimulate our original love for Krishna and how to be situated in that position where we can enjoy our blissful life.”
The second path of Yoga is Bhakti Yoga or the Yoga of Devotion and Divine Love. Bhakti Yoga is the love of the Self (the Divine) in the form of the Universal Being and all of his/her formations and manifestations. It proceeds through surrender to the Divine Presence within the heart. The path consists of concentrating one’s mind, emotions, and senses on the Divine.

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali
The Book of the Spiritual Man
Author: Charles Johnston
Format: PDF & EPUB
Patanjali Yoga Sutras
The roots of yoga go back 5000 years but the most common high authority of modern yoga is the Patanjali Yoga Sutras. Patanjali was a distinguished yogi in ancient India and around 200-400AD, Patanjali composed the Yoga Sutras (texts), which today is considered the main high authority on yoga definition and practice.
In the Yoga Sutras Patanjali offers us Ashtanga Yoga (Eightfold or Eightlimbed Yoga) which describes the eight limbs that together constitute Raja Yoga. His “eight limbs” of yoga still inform practice today and discuss posture, breathing, meditation and correct living.
The 8 Limbs of Yoga are:
YAMA – Restraints, moral disciplines or moral vows.
NIYAMA – Positive duties or observances.
ASANA – Posture.
PRANAYAMA – Breathing techniques.
PRATYAHARA – Sense withdrawal.
DHARANA – Focused concentration.
DHYANA – Meditative absorption.
SAMADHI – Bliss or Enlightenment.
This gives the definition of yoga clearly and shows the practice as we see it commonly of exercises (asanas) and breath management (pranayama) in the regular yoga practice. It further goes to show how we take that yoga practice into focused concentration (dharana) for the purpose of dhyana meditation which has as its goal to lead to samadhi (absorption). This shows how yoga is made to lead as its goal to meditation and samadhi.
The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali are a composite of various texts. According to Feuerstein, the Yoga Sutras are a condensation of two different traditions, namely “eight limb yoga” (ashtanga yoga) and action yoga (Kriya yoga). Patanjali calls the 8 Limbed Yoga as Raja Yoga.

These lessons include the Practices and Exercises of Concentration, both Objective and Subjective, and Active and Passive Mentation, an Elucidation of Maya, Guru Worship, the Mystery of Will-Force and many breathing and physical exercise lessons.
The author writes some notes as follows:
In studying these Lessons please remember 3 points:
1. Not one useless or superfluous sentence is written. Every word is full of meaning. They are highly condensed. Think deeply over them.
2. They are meant as a practical supplement to the ‘Spiritual Consciousness,’ ‘Soul-Force’ and ‘Inner Forces.’Studied side by side, these lessons will yield a great deal of benefit. You are expected to think hard and long.
3. Let none expect speedy or miraculous results. All spiritual training calls for infinite patience and deep reverence unto the Guru. Constant rise and fall accompanies all progress.
