    About the Book:

    Vijnanabhairava is a very ancient book on Yoga. It studiously eschews mechanical worship, external rites and ceremonies and goes directly to the heart of the problem of the union of human consciousness with the Divine. There is no theoretical discussion in the book. It describes 112 types of Yoga each of which is a precious gem delineating the mystics approach to the Divine. For this purpose, it makes full use of all the aspects of human life-prana, manas imagination and intuition.
