The roots to Yoga and Ayurveda are found in an ancient group of texts known as the Vedas (Books of Knowledge). Portions of the Vedas give astronomical references dating back to approximately 6500 BCE; making them amongst the worlds oldest spiritual teachings still practiced today.

To many modern readers, the Vedas are difficult to understand, as they are steeped in symbology, archaic language and multiple meanings for the same term, yet they form the foundation to modern Yoga, meditation and Ayurveda (a healing system).

Yogic Secrets of the Vedas approaches these important teachings from a very practical view. Demystifying terms and symbology, examining various teachings, principles and mantras from the standpoint of how they manifest within the reader's life on a daily basis, as-well-as their connection with Ayurveda.

The exploration begins with a foreword by Dr. David Frawley (Pandit Vamadeva Shastri) and then continues with an examination of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, one of the important introductory books on Yoga. The book continues to explore the Vedas connection with Tantra and the form; examining the important role that the feminine form has within the Vedas and yoga, as well.

A variety of different yoga such as Kundalini and Hatha Yoga, and their link with the Vedas are examined. The reader is carefully prepared for an introduction into Vedic Yoga, the oldest Yoga known to exist.

Culminating in a new and different view toward deities, as-well-as their universal application in everyone’s daily life; providing simple but powerful techniques, and taking ones understanding of spirituality, Hinduism, Ayurveda and Yoga to new and deeper levels.

The reader is provided with a simple and effective program for beginning their own practice of Vedic Yoga, or easy techniques to incorporate into their existing yoga and meditation practice.
