"A must-have for anyone who is new and serious about exporing the subject further. Also recommended for advanced practitioners who may want to 'brush-up' on their Sanskrit." -- Yoga Magazine UK
"This slim volume is a lot more than its title lets on." -- The Asian Reporter
"...A joy to read: it has accuracy in its translations, beauty in its presentation, and conveys the spiritual richness of the yogic tradition. It will definitely enrich the life of many yoga teachers and students." -- Ascent Magazine
Joseph Campbell called Sanskrit “the great spiritual language of the world.” Designed by ancient Indian holy men to express the states of enlightened consciousness through syllabic sounds, Sanskrit is widely used in the West during yoga practice to channel spiritual pathways and to discuss important meditative and philosophical concepts. This book introduces 180 Sanskrit words (including chakra, karma, om, namaste, veda, nirvana) with Devanagari scripts, pronunciations, chants and brief cultural/historic explanations. A practical reference that makes an excellent gift book for any student of yoga, meditation or Eastern religion.

And for teachers it is a great tool to further their knowledge of sanskrit terms and also enables them to better explain these terms to their students; for example what are dristis, chakras, karma yoga, etc. Also in the back of the book there are chants with their meaning. The size of the book is perfect so you can take it with you to yoga class! Highly recommended.
It was extremely helpful in providing the symbols and meanings of many Sanskrit words and phrases. I was able to use it not only to choose, but also as a guide for the artist to accurately draw the symbols I chose.
Again, nothing serious, just a thin book to learn some of the key words that you're bound to run into time and time again, if you're familiar with yogas - vedas - Hindu culture in general.
