From the Heart of the Lotus: The Teaching Stories of Swami Kripalu

Front Cover
Monkfish Book Publishing Company, 2008 - Health & Fitness - 288 pages

These never before published teaching stories of the yoga master Swami Kripalu are at once down-to-earth and transcendent. The Swami was fond of telling stories as a way of making his often subtle and surprising points. For example, in a parable about mind control, “The Demanding Daughter,” we learn of a young spoiled woman who will only marry on the condition that she can find a husband who will allow her to strike him on the head seven times a day with her shoe. Each story is set off by a particular yoga principle that the Swami illustrates through the story.
