If ever you feel satisfied with your progress in yoga, a read-through of this book will set you straight. The techniques described here are, at present, quite thoroughly beyond my ability, and I am grateful for the reminder of how much of a novice I really am. Read in conjunction wwntz “Aghora I” by Svoboda. Que le disciple tue l’assassin. La compassion parle et dit: Peut-il y avoir de la joie quand toute vie doit souffrir? Pratiquer les six vertus glorieuses est le second.

Tibetan Yoga And Secret Doctrines
This is the real deal. I would say about half of it is docrrines of true, but run of the Secret doctrines in this case means “oral tradition”. I would say about half of it is translations of true, but run of the mill type stuff.
The rest though, is some of the most densly packed pearls of philosophical insight one is likely to come across. This book is excellent. A little confusing if you don’t have background knowledge of Tibetan Buddhism which I had little so I plan on re-reading this one in the future so I may better understand what they are talking about.
