Why have the yoga teachers of the modern world chosen to reduce yoga to a system of gymnastic fitness and compromised its true essence by completely distorting it to fit into the modern lifestyle?
Is asana all about physical exercises? Is pranayama all about curing diseases? Is meditation all about stress management? After practising many years of the modern therapeutic styles of yoga with some of the most renowned contemporary teachers with their numerous claims of authenticity, the author's incessant desire for spiritual-awareness was never addressed.
Until, one day an old ascetic perceived the urgency of his quest and took him to the remote caves of the Himalayas. "Sivananda Buried Yoga" is about personal journey of the author & the discoveries of the stunning realities of yoga.

Review by biunicorn
Sivananda Buried Yogaby Yogi Manmoyanand This 308 page testimony to perseverance taught me so much about yoga on a very deep and personal level. It was awesome to follow along with someone as they grew step by step in their spiritual quest. I could totally identify about seeking and not finding, and then when he was able to finally find the teacher he needed my eyes welled up with tears, because I sure know what that feels like. I have learned over the years that yoga has many different forms and histories and this wonderful guide helped me to understand how things fit and it made me want to get more involved with yoga on a deeper level. The format was awesome and the story just flowed. I would recommend this enlightened read to anyone drawn to yoga as a spiritual path or to those who are curious. Thanks, for helping me to understand. Love & Light, Riki Frahmann
