Path of Fire and Light, Volume 1, by Swami Rama –
On this New Moon day of June 3rd 2019 it was a hot, sultry day. Such perfect temperatures for what I have chosen as the book of the month. Path of Fire and Light Volume 1, by Swami Rama. I consider this to also be one of the new editions to my library as it has been on my shelf for around 5 years.
Oxford dictionary describes Fire as such: a process in which substances combine chemically with oxygen from the air and typically give out bright light, heat, and smoke; combustion or burning.
Fire also purifies. Many sacred rituals ignite fires to purify, to cleanse and release what is no longer of value on a psychic and spiritual level. Also the word can be used to release someone from their unsatisfactory duties.
The practices listed in this book do just that. Purify, release, renew and prepare for a new body, mind and spirit connection It is a clear concise sharing of advanced methods of Yoga dealing with Mindful Breath and Spiritual approach to your practice.
