New Books for Your Spiritual Library

A Brief Sanskrit Glossary and Foundations of Yoga

Light of the Spirit Press announces two new publications for your spiritual library.

The first is Foundations of Yoga: Ten Important Principles Every Meditator Should Know, an introduction to the important principles of Patanjali’s Yoga: Yama & Niyama. (Those who have read Soham Yoga: The Yoga of the Self will recognize this as a chapter extracted from this book which we now make available as a stand-alone paperback.)

Yama and Niyama are often called the Ten Commandments of Yoga, principles having a thoroughly practical basis: that which strengthens and facilitates our yoga practice.

Foundations of Yoga is already available as a free ebook download from Amazon and other online sources, as well as available for free online reading at

You can buy the book at Amazon here.

The second new publication is an expanded 2nd edition of A Brief Sanskrit Glossary: A Spiritual Student’s Guide to Essential Sanskrit Terms. Both ebook and paperback versions have been updated with new valuable content.

This Sanskrit glossary contains full translations and explanations of many of the most commonly used spiritual Sanskrit terms, and will help students of the Bhagavad Gita, the Upanishads, the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and other Indian scriptures and philosophical works to expand their vocabularies to include the Sanskrit terms contained in them, and gain a fuller understanding in their studies.

In many books written in India with Indian readers in mind, numerous untranslated Sanskrit words and expression are found. Readers of such books will find this book invaluable, as it defines those terms in English.

(This is not a Sanskrit grammar or pronunciation guide, and does not have diacritical markings.)
