This concise volume provides a survey of the methods of Yoga as they relate to the rise of the non-dual condition of enlightenment, or “Liberation” (“Moksha” in Sanskrit), and practices that can be utilized during the end stage of the journey. It is about the rise of the witness and the evolution to ripeness and relational self-inquiry for permanent realization of the observer being both beyond and in unity with all objects of perception, accompanied by the natural emergence of an unending flow of divine love in the world.
While this book is about Advaita-Vedanta and Jnana Yoga for end stage realization, it is also about assuring that the prerequisites of Deep Meditation and related yogic methods are not ignored, as so often happens in modern teachings on enlightenment. Liberation is the cap-stone of the AYP Enlightenment Series, the “vedanta” of it so to speak, meaning, “the end of knowledge.” It is also an expansion on the discussion that began in the seventh book of the series: "Self-Inquiry." As has always been said throughout the AYP Enlightenment Series, the center of all spiritual progress is found within each human being, and that theme culminates here. Liberation is in your hands.
“Liberation” is the eleventh book in the Enlightenment Series, preceded by “Retreats,” “Eight Limbs of Yoga,” “Bhakti and Karma Yoga,” “Self-Inquiry,” “Diet, Shatkarmas and Amaroli,” “Samyama,” “Asanas, Mudras and Bandhas,” “Tantra,” “Spinal Breathing Pranayama,” and “Deep Meditation.”
Yogani is also the author of two highly-regarded user-friendly textbooks providing detailed instructions on full-scope yoga practices, “Advanced Yoga Practice – Easy Lessons for Ecstatic Living, Volumes 1 & 2," and a spiritual adventure novel, “The Secrets of Wilder – A Story of Inner Silence, Ecstasy and Enlightenment.”
Yogani is the author of the Advanced Yoga Practices (AYP) system, including more than a dozen Instructional Titles available in Paperback, Kindle eBook and AudioBook editions, covering all aspects of Full-Scope Yoga Practice. Since 1970, he has crossed the lines between many traditions, developing an effective integration of methods including Deep Meditation, Spinal Breathing Pranayama, Hatha, Kundalini, Tantra, Self-Inquiry, and more. It is a flexible, scientific approach rather than a rigid, arbitrary one, and open to public scrutiny, as all spiritual knowledge should be nowadays. He has no desire for guru status - only to have the joy of making a small contribution to helping the disciplines of spiritual practice become open to everyone. He wishes to remain anonymous, preserving a quiet life in practices. AYP is not about the author. It is about all who long for knowledge.
