Wie die Ramayana soll die Yoga Vasishtha auch von Valmiki geschrieben worden sein. Das ist ein Zeichen, dass die Wissenschaft von Pranayama und Hatha Yoga durchaus sehr, sehr alt ist, und es schon in alten Werken beschrieben wurde. Es ist ein relativ umfangreiches Werk. Und das Faszinierende an dem Yoga Vasishtha ist auch, dass dort viele Geschichten sind. Wenn du daran interessiert bist, kannst du auf unsere Internetseite gehen, www.

Narayanaswamy ayyar. This edition contains about pages. This contains many stories, purported to have been Laghu yoga Vasistha is a book published by Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar, Chennai.
This contains many stories, purported to have been briefed to Sri Rama by sage Vasistha, the Guru of Ikshvagu clan. It begins with a briefing that when sage Viswamitra visited Ayodhya to request the services of Sri Rama to save his Yagna from Asuras. After obtaining the assent of Dhasaratha with some persuasion, Viswamitra comes to know of the despondency of SriRama, who was, despite all royal comforts, living a life of an ascetic without attachment to any worldly affairs.
Upon hearing his position, Viswamitra requests Vasistha to initiate Rama to the Philosophy of advaita and make him learned in the yogas. Thus Vasistha starts to upraise Rama of the highest principles of Advaita Vedanta by illustrating with many stories of various Kings, sages and Devas. The philosophical doctrine is divided into six prakaranas viz. Not only the stories of the past and the present at the time of Ramayans, but also the stories of those who are yet to come during the Mahbharatha period, which happened after several thousand years of Ramayana are also briefed in this epic.
This is purely vedantic philososophical, that at the end of every story, a philosophical fact is explained; and as such it took more than a month to complete the book of about pages. If one has the patience and interest in philosophy, this book is a must read.
