Read in August, 2010

I read this after reading Devotion by Dani Shapiro and was touched at both his earnestness and his revelation that it really isn't all that in the end. We work so hard to reach some spiritual space when really it is as simple as sitting with frogs near a pond. The book goes into great detail about Hindu and yoga philosophy as well as the psychology from the West and yoga perspective. Very interesting - although it often felt like reading a text book. His personal narrative was easily absorbed.
