About this title

Synopsis:

Divine Body Through Yoga By Swami Rajarshi Muni Paperback, 18x24 cm, 188 pages, with one color illustration. The concept of the divine body is found in all the faiths of the world. Indian Scripture, nearly five thousand years ago, was the first authority to acknowledge this phenomenon, and included repeated references to it. Through the ages the concept of the Divine Body has resurfaced again and again, not only in the great religious traditions of the world, but also in the realm of myth and legend, from the "philosopher's stone" of medieval alchemy to modern science fiction. In the western world the resurrection of Jesus Christ and his ascendance into heaven is the best known example of the divine body, but the author includes the stories of many other great saints who have tested the principle of the divine body on the anvil of practical experience and achieved the ultimate goal of human existence. These include Kabir, Mirabai, Milarepa, Moses, and Elijah, among others. The author asserts, therefore, that the divine body is neither a myth nor is its achievement limited to one particular individual or faith. On the contrary, it is both real and attainable, and from the time that the seers and sages of ancient India demonstrated the scriptural truth of this phenomenon, it has been witnessed in the traditions of most of the major religions of the world including the Vedic tradition, Christianity, Buddhism, Jainism, and Zoroastrianism. Knowledge of the practice of Divine Yoga is not easily available because the adept masters who know it are rare. But in 1913 the world was gifted with a spiritual lineage that is devoted to the knowledge, understanding, and accomplishment of the divine body. Swami Rajarshi Muni, the author of Divine Body Through Yoga is the current spiritual head of this lineage. He has declared that through this lineage the modern world will come to witness the truth and validity of the principal of the divine body.

About the Author:

SWAMI RAJARSHI MUNI Swami Rajarshi Muni was born in 1931 in the lineage of the Jadeja rulers of the former State of Kutchh in Gujarat, India. He briefly served in several Governmental roles before he renounced the world and received sannyas from his guru, Swami Kripalvanda. He has pursued the study and practice of Yoga since early youth, and has been engaged almost exclusively in secluded Yoga sadhana for at least ten hours a day since he received sannyas initiation in 1971. For many years Muniji has undertaken intense research in the Vedic Scriptures and the associated literature of ancient times. He is a Sanskrit scholar and a profound philosopher who has written many books, most of which are published in Gujarati, his native language. Until recently only a few of these works have been translated into English. Thus relatively few readers in the western world have had the opportunity to engage his extraordinary mind and appreciate the depth of his philosophical insight. More importantly, Muniji is a highly advanced yogi who for the past thirty-five years has successfully engaged in the most intense and demanding sadhana (spiritual practice). In this way, his vast practical experience in the pursuit of Divine Yoga matches his grasp of the fundamentals of the philosophy and science of Yoga. In 1993 he emerged from secluded sadhana in response to a spiritual calling to undertake certain works for the advancement of the public good. At this time he set out to propagate the moral, ethical and spiritual values of the sana tan dharma as well as the knowledge of true Yoga. These goals are central to the mission of the Lakulish spiritual lineage, of which he is currently the spiritual head. His efforts to accomplish these goals have led to the establishment of the Life Mission, a world-wide organization that serves as a vehicle to spread the knowledge and practice of both Yoga and the sanatan dharma. He has also created a major new pilgrimage center in western India. Finally, he has increased the vast library of his published works to nearly 100 titles in four different languages, including ten books in English. These unique works on Yoga and the spiritual and cultural heritage of India are unlike anything that has been seen in the modern world in that they are both supremely profound and eminently practical. His work in the world duly completed, he reverted to secluded sadhana once again in February 2007. Swami Rajarshi Muni is an advanced yogi, a realized Master in the classic mould of Indian adepts: a knower of the Kundalini and master of khechari mudra. He is a gift to the world from the eternal culture that since ancient times has shared the gentle light of Brahmavidya, the knowledge of God. 11
