Yamas and Niyamas, the Yogic principles, are the basis for Yoga. Without these, no practice of Yoga will be achieved. ~Swami Chidanand
This ancient science is offered in an unadulterated form as first brought to America by Yogi Gupta, a great Yoga Master from India.
Swami Chidanand, a senior disciple of Yogi Gupta, received the knowledge directly from the Master in the same manner as it has been handed down for thousands of years from teacher to disciple.
The popularity of the asanas (postures) in recent years has been somewhat misleading, limiting the Yoga practitioners to mostly the physical benefits of Yoga.
Swami Chidanand adds to those benefits techniques to achieve radiant health, a calm state of mind, reduce anxiety, develop the mental faculties to tap the tremendous power of the higher mind for success in daily life, and to further spiritual development.
Presented as poems, 108 Pearls of Wisdom contains universal truths for all mankind. It is a book for anyone who has ever wondered who they are and what their purpose is here on earth. With this knowledge, one will have the strength to overcome the many challenges in life and be filled with peace and joy.
The poems are infused with devotion to the One who blesses us all. They stir the soul. This is a work of divine love, helping humanity to rise above the limits of physical identity and attain the awareness of the spiritual identity.

Great Yogis and Masters in India have known and practiced for thousands of years techniques to develop the higher faculties of the mind obtaining astounding results in the creation of events, conditions, etc. in human life. These Yoga techniques are based on natural laws of universal application and not on dogmatic or religious beliefs.
By learning and applying these laws one can tap the enormous power of the higher (super conscious) mind in everyday life and achieve prosperity both materially and spiritually. Physical efforts are very limited in their power of manifestation and therefore our efforts to obtain our heart's desires are - in spite of many years of struggle - not fulfilled and disappointing.
The unique Psychic Development techniques enable one to achieve peace of mind, control of emotions, and reshape the mental patterns that attract and determine circumstances in our lives.
Hatha Yoga helps improve health and well-being by making the body more flexible, improving the functions of circulation, digestion, etc. and obtaining sound and restful sleep by releasing tension through guided relaxation.
Pranayama is the science of breath control to normalize the flow of the underlying vital energy within the breath called prana. Since prana is the life force of every cell in the body, it needs to be balanced and flow harmoniously for a healthy body and balanced mind.
Meditation is the gateway to Self-realization. It is the primary technique to achieve peace of mind, radiant health, and for spiritual development.
