From the Heart of the Lotus : The Teaching Stories of Swami Kripalu Paperback / softback
These never before published teaching stories of the yoga master Swami Kripalu are at once down-to-earth and transcendent.
The Swami was fond of telling stories as a way of making his often subtle and surprising points.
For example, in a parable about mind control, "The Demanding Daughter," we learn of a young spoiled woman who will only marry on the condition that she can find a husband who will allow her to strike him on the head seven times a day with her shoe.
Each story is set off by a particular yoga principle that the Swami illustrates through the story.
