Praise

“An in-depth investigation of the interweaving strands of yoga and Buddhism. Its broad range of perspectives provides a wealth of illuminating insights. A valuable resource.”—Joseph Goldstein, author of A Heart Full of Peace and One Dharma

“Lucid, wise, and rich with detail, this is a must-read for yogis of all traditions.”—Roshi Joan Halifax, author of Being with Dying



“For too long in the West we’ve had the notion that Yoga and Buddhism are two separate, even antagonistic, paths. In this collection of articles by some of our finest Yoga and Buddhist practitioners, Michael Stone demonstrates that the two disciplines share ancient roots, methods, and goals; and that the time has come for us to re-affirm and learn from these old commonalities.”—Richard Rosen, author of The Yoga of Breath

“This collection marks a crucial step toward mutual understanding between two important Eastern traditions and will bring pleasure and instruction to experienced and novice readers.”—Library Journal  

“What struck me as I finished the book was the depth of the commitment to practice of each of the authors, and their clarity in sharing their wisdom. I read the essays out of order, depending on my mood each day, and when I finished the last one I felt like I had been on an intensive Buddhist Yoga Retreat, led by the authors of these 13 beautiful essays. This book itself was an experience, and, for me, the reading of it became a daily practice.”—Wildmind.org

“A truly useful, helpful, spiritual guide. The entire book is a spur to practice.”—Parabola
