Product Description

"Bhakti and Karma Yoga - The Science of Devotion and Liberation Through Action" covers the systematic application of the essential principles of desire and devotion to aid us in achieving our goals and spiritual aspirations. Through inspired action we can transform our life experience to one of ecstatic bliss and outpouring divine love. In combination with an effective daily routine of yoga practices, the applied principles of bhakti and karma yoga elevate the relationship of our desires and actions to divine expression, greatly hastening our progress toward enlightenment. Yogani is the author of two landmark books on the world's most effective spiritual practices: "Advanced Yoga Practices - Easy Lessons for Ecstatic Living," a comprehensive user-friendly textbook, and "The Secrets of Wilder," a powerful spiritual novel. The "AYP Enlightenment Series" makes these profound practices available for the first time in a series of concise instruction books. "Bhakti and Karma Yoga" is the eighth book in the series, preceded by "Self-Inquiry," "Diet, Shatkarmas and Amaroli," "Samyama," "Asanas, Mudras and Bandhas," "Tantra," "Spinal Breathing Pranayama," and "Deep Meditation."

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book on Bhakti (spiritual desire) and Karma Yoga 28 January 2009
By Shanti - Published on Amazon.com
Another awesome book by Yogani. It's a must read if you have a very strong desire toward a chosen ideal or action, or if you feel that you cannot seem to be attracted toward a chosen ideal or action.

If you are feeling overwhelmed because you have strong bhakti (spiritual desire), or if you are feeling frustrated because you seem to have no bhakti at all, he explains how to learn to transform emotions (positive or negative) to bhakti toward our chosen ideal (ishta) rather than getting frustrated. This can be done while still being completely engaged in this world. He emphasizes the need to self pace bhakti so that our journey is as smooth as possible. He talks about karma and explains how it is cause and effect and how the effects can be altered by changing the underlying causes. Hence we don't have to leave our lives in the hands of fate and can bring about positive consequences to ourselves and all around us. This, he says, is karma yoga.

We may feel guilty or shame due to our conditioning or the judgment of others on certain actions we may take that are labeled as "sin" by our society. Sin is considered an offense against religion, moral laws and/or God. This too can be let go of by surrendering this guilt to our chosen ideal. Meditation helps in loosening the grip that the label of sin has on us. In AYP, deep meditation is used to cultivate inner silence which penetrates every aspect of our lives. This silence helps us transcend karma. Karma does not go away, but our relationship with our karma changes and we become the master of our karma, rather than a servant of it. He explains how karma yoga is fulfilled when we have become "stillness in action." Then we do without doing, and this is the best place to serve from and then we can serve without attachment to the fruits of our actions. There is a difference between service and servitude. Service is done freely, while servitude is imposed on us by our own minds. When service is done as a rule of conduct and not from the heart, it can be counterproductive.

Also, balance is important. He talks about how to deal with the confusion that may arise when there is bhakti rising and at the same time money and praise for "being spiritual" may be coming. It is better to go with the inner calling for service while cultivating inner silence in deep meditation. He says "move as stillness moves, not as fear would have you move". Also, service does not have to be done in a big scale, service can be done from where we are in family and among people we know.

There is a misconception that enlightenment is impractical and after enlightenment we stop thinking, desiring, doing. Enlightenment without action is not enlightenment. One of the paradoxes of enlightenment is that the one who is enlightened is more active than ever before, because they are engaged on many levels, the visible and invisible. And yet, they will be doing nothing at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book on Bhakti & Karma Yoga 11 November 2008
By kirk ven - Published on Amazon.com
This book is one of the very few books that we have on the topic of bhakti and karma yogas that explains very clearly what they actually are.

The science of devotion or bhakti is constant love for god, through which one reaches enlightenment. The path of liberation through one's actions is the path of karma yoga.

Yogani explains very well the differences and similarties between these two paths and how they relate to AYP system of practices.

I also highly recommend to everyone another book written by Yogani which explains all the spiritual practices of ancient times which were hidden to the modern world till now. This book is considered and rated by many as "The BIBLE of Spirituality" and I highly recommend this to every spiritual aspirant who wants to make progress on the path. Here is the link...
