The lecture was transcribed, edited, and later published as Krishna Consciousness, the Topmost Yoga System. The Sanskrit word yoga , he told the students, originally meant much more than physical exercise; it referred to a lifestyle focused on achieving direct experience of God. Practitioners would live far away from mainstream society, restrain their senses, and perform austere meditation with the aim of transcending the physical body entirely. Such a lifestyle isn't so practical now; very few people these days are prepared to live a secluded, austere, or sense-controlled life. But anyone can still attain yoga's ultimate goal via the practical, effective method of Krishna consciousness, bhakti-yoga , the system of devotional service to the Supreme Person.

Texto sumamente amigable para los interesados curiosos. Uno no es su cuerpo ni su orgullo. Uno no son sus problemas o sus talentos. May 01, Nielian rated it really liked it. I was thinking it would be a better opera or a play. Because the story was quite predictable and pretty much the same outcome was repeated many times Still it was nice.
I got to know some things about indian culture at least :. Mar 29, Esteban Contreras rated it liked it. Good but too referent to krsna and not to the universal holyness. I just loved the book. The topmost yoga is bhakti yoga and srila prabhupada has nicely explained it with the example of a plant which grows until it gets krishna Not always the easiest read, and in some claims should be taken "with a pinch of salt", or read with an open mind In my opinion, best read at intervals, one chapter at a time, putting it down inbetween reads.

Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati, a prominent devotional scholar and the founder of sixty-four branches of Gaudiya Mathas Vedic institutes , liked this educated young man and convinced him to dedicate his life to teaching Vedic knowledge in the Western world. Srila Prabhupada became his student, and eleven years later at Allahabad, he became his formally initiated disciple.
At their first meeting, in , Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura requested Srila Prabhupada to broadcast Vedic knowledge through the English language. In the years that followed, Srila Prabhupada wrote a commentary on the Bhagavad-gita and in , without assistance, started an English fortnightly magazine.
In the last ten years of his life, in spite of his advanced age, Srila Prabhupada circled the globe twelve times on lecture tours that have took him to six continents. In spite of such a vigorous schedule, Srila Prabhupada continued to write prolifically. His writings constitute a veritable library of Vedic philosophy, religion, literature and culture.
