The Path of Perfection
Yoga for the Modern Age
The Path of Perfection provides a welcome introduction into the philosophy and practice of humankind's oldest system of spiritual development – yoga. Yoga is so much more than what’s being practiced in the myriad yoga studios around the world, which are filled with people trying to improve their health, lose weight, or increase their agility. Rather, yoga is an ancient philosophy and meditational system aimed at achieving self-realization.
The Path of Perfection consists of a historic series of talks – elaborations on a previously published commentary – by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda (1896-1977) on India's greatest spiritual classic, the Bhagavad-gītā. In these absorbing talks, Śrīla Prabhupāda explores the philosophy of yoga as it's explained in the Gītā's sixth and eighth chapters, making these timeless teachings both accessible and applicable.
