"James Mallinson has just produced the most reliable Sanskrit edition and English translation of the Shiva Samhita available.

The accuracy and readability of this book make it of great interest to anyone working on Yoga and related disciplines."
--Elizabeth De Michelis
I have never felt as though I have been able to gain an understanding of this text due to disjointed and and confusing tranlations of this compilation of scripture, being all I could find available prior to this edition. I've always felt it was a missing link in my acquisition of yogic knowledge and had given up on truly being able to study this text without first learning to translate Sanskrit, since my feeble American mind currently requires an
English translation.This edition has allowed me acess to this text in an understandable and accessible English translation.
As always the production value of the yogavidya.com publication is top notch as well. English and Sanskrit are both printed beautifully; illustrations are concise and relevant; and the cover is understated and scholarly in appearance, in keeping with the other yogavidya.com paperback editions.
