4 February 2017: The Second Edition of Yoga Vasistha, Important Verses along with its video on YouTube - video, audio and eBooks in both print and reader formats have joined the website and YouTube.       

Yoga Vasistha, Important Verses for print     Yoga Vasistha, Important Verses, 2nd Edition eBook

Download eBook: print version / reader version

This is an updated and revised very compact version with focus on the important teachings of the great Sage. I have divided these essential verses of the Yoga Vasistha into four parts and included the prayer before reading before each of these four parts.  

   First Part - Chapters I, II & III: YouTube / download video / download audio   

   Second Part - Chapters IV & V: YouTube / download video / download audio

   Third Part - Chapter VI, Part I: YouTube / download video / download audio 

   Fourth Part - Chapter VI, Part II: YouTube / download video / download audio 

These parts are not balanced in length but feel to contain tighter groups of teachings. The fourth part is longer than the other parts. I have also modified some of the translations to be relevant to the present times . This essential verse translation is for the sincere seeker who is interested in what the teachings point to.

About my work...

This website is the primary venue of my work which extends to my YouTube channel and the Sivananda Daily Readings blogsite - which can both be subscribed to. I do not have any technical background and so this, is and will continue to be a work-in-progress. There is no cost for anything and no need to sign-up, so help yourself to anything that you may find useful for your personal use.

YouTube: work on YouTube was a challenge to get started as I had never done any video before. I was a little familiar with slides, so I felt combining video with slides would be a good way to share thoughts.

Sivananda Daily Readings: subscribers receive a page sized teaching each day for the next day as subscribers are in different time zones. The teachings are content progressive and a good way to step into the new day.

Kindly let me know if there are any broken or wrong links, you can write to me from the contact page. Thank you for your visit. Wishing you radiant health, peace and happiness.
