The Perfection of Yoga


Yoga practice in the modern day is often associated with various postures and breathing techniques for the sake of health and relaxation. The word “yoga,” however, actually means to link with the Supreme, and this goal is not achievable without giving up the desire for sense gratification. In this age, to find a space free of external diversions and interruptions for the sake of deep meditation is not possible. Perfection in self-realization can only be attained by the process of devotional service to the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Śrī Kṛṣṇa, especially the chanting of the Holy Names. Whatever endeavor is made in that pursuit is never lost, even if the practices are abandoned for some time. These topics are introduced and expounded upon in detail in this small, brilliant presentation by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda. There are many yoga systems, and Śrīla Prabhupāda explains, “If one is fortunate enough to come to the point of bhakti-yoga, Kṛṣṇa Consciousness, it is to be understood that he has surpassed all the other yoga systems.” This book is a very clear, easy to read presentation that brings light to the darkness of confusion around the practice of yoga.
