Book and YouTube Philosophy Lists
- A very short condensed book list, mostly to indicate the history of some of my influences.
- 1-3 are focused on ‘meditation’ and some version of non-duality.
- 4-6 are based around classic ‘old school’ yoga and kundalini.
- 7-8 The next two are on modern postural yoga.
- 9 is a short list of names and historical figures that are worth reading on – for historical and autobiographical interests.
- Ramana Maharshi – Who Am I
- Adyashanti – The End of Your World
- Eckhart Tolle – The Power of Now
- Satyananda Saraswati – Asana, Pranayama, Mudra, Bandha
- Swami Buddhananda – Mula Bandha the Master Key
- Gopi Krishna – Living with Kundalini
- BKS Iyengar – Light on Yoga

Yoga Philosophy / Funny Links
- 1-9 are more serious, and useful for educational or historical purposes.
- 10-15 are funny (in my opinion), though if you don’t like the F-word, avoid the last two, 14 & 15.
