  • The Hatha Yoga Pradipika is a classical text describing Hatha Yoga. It is said to be the oldest surviving text on Hatha Yoga. Swami Swatmarama, a disciple of Swami Goraknath, wrote the text in the 15th century CE, drawing upon previous texts and his own experiences. While the text describes asanas (postures), purifying practices (shatkarma), mudras (finger and hand positions), bandhas (locks), and pranayama (breath exercises), it also explains that the purpose of Hatha Yoga is the awakening of kundalini (subtle energy), advancement to Raja Yoga, and the experience of deep meditative absorption known as samadhi.

The author spent eleven months in a cave monastery and traveled to study in Tibet with his grandmaster. He author honors this spiritual teacher as a stream and a channel of wisdom. He modeled selflessness, fearlessness, faith, and determination as prerequisites for enlightenment. Swami Rama also writes about his experiences on the path of renunciation, which he calls "a razor's edge." He ponders the rich meanings of humility, conquering fear, trusting in divine protection, developing the powers of the mind, and casting off the body in death.
