About In the Light of Wisdom:
How rare it is to find a teacher of supreme truth whose knowledge is without equal, whose ability to teach is unparalleled and whose primary concern is to render the utmost benefit to the students seated before him! Such a one was Sri Swami Krishnanandaji Maharaj. Not only was he a master of yoga, Vedanta, the scriptures of India and the philosophy of both the East and West, he was also a saint and sage of great attainment. He was also a saint and sage of great attainment. He was not someone who merely lectured from book knowledge; when he spoke, it was with a voice filled with the conviction manifested in a person who has realised the highest in his own vast and profound experience. Swamiji was able to explain the most philosophical concepts with clarity and insight. Once having heard him speak, the listener would have the feeling that everything that was needed had been provided.
The 34 lectures that make up this book were given to a small group of students who came to the Sivananda Ashram in 1970 to be instructed in the fundamentals of spiritual practice. Swamiji has masterfully presented the essence of the philosophy, psychology and practice of yoga in a way that is especially helpful for the beginner on the path. To read his words is to be bathed in the light of wisdom.
