Chapter Four



1. HYP I:16ii-iii, YS II:30-45

2. GS V:16-32

3. See K. Wilber's Integral Psychology for a good discussion of lines of development. Also H. Gardener's work on multiple intelligences.

4. The following categories of teachers to avoid come from Patrul Rinpoche's 19th century classic, Words of My Perfect Teacher, published by the Padmakara Translation Group (pp. 139-140). They are quoted in that work, however, as coming from much older sources.

5. See this news article for more on the story.

6. Kartikeya's student, Dhirendra Brahmachari, attests to this number in his writings. Here, one of Brahmachari's students goes into slightly greater detail.

7. For more on peak and altered states/stages of consciousness, check out works by S. Grof, C. Tart, and K. Wilber. In particular, Tart's States of Consciousness and Wilber's Sex, Ecology, & Spirituality are both seminal works in this field.

Chapter Five


1. For the most part, we haven't listed references for Sanskrit translation, but since this definition may come as a surprise to some, we've listed the Wikipedia entry for Hatha Yoga (which refers to the Monier-Williams Sanskrit dictionary), also a compilation of Hatha Yoga texts, titled, The Forceful Yoga as evidence that this is, in fact, a common interpretation.

2. For a bit more about these different paths, see the Sivananda Yoga website.

3. Nowadays there's a ton of research being done on the health benefits of Hatha Yoga. For a starting point, check out the International Association of Yoga Therapists - they've got a quarterly journal which publishes current research - and Google Scholar's page for "yoga research".
