Revealing the Secret The Small Burning Lamp of Sun Moon Yoga by Yogacharya Kripalvananda

We imagine a temple of yoga. Entering it, we approach its inner sanctum. We see that the door to the inner sanctum is open; however, a gauze curtain hangs interposed between us and the image of truth that lies within. We stand there gazing, but can only vaguely see that which is within. No matter how hard we try to guess the secret, it eludes us. Then, inside the inner sanctum, Swatmarama, holding the small radian lamp of sun-moon yoga in his hand, helps us see the truth of yoga more clearly. But most of us trying to penetrate the now brightly lit gauze curtain by using our senses, only become blinded by the light. Seeing the sincerity and seriousness of a few of us, Kripalvanada, standing by the entrance of the inner sanctum, draws back the veil, revealing the radiant image of truth that illuminates the path of sun-moon yoga. By its light, we can, if we choose, abandon our fixed ideas and follow that path to true knowledge and final liberation. back cover of Revealing the Secret.

The Small Burning Lamp of Sun-Moon Yoga includes sixteen postures, eight suspensions of the life energy, ten energy seals, the six practices, and divine sound uniting. There are detailed diagrams of the seven energy centers.
