What then is yoga, according to Sri Krishna Prem? Yoga is nothing but an intense relating to life: "The aspirant must therefore guard himself carefully against any tendency to separate himself from his fellows. He must strive always to feel himself into the hearts of those he meets in his daily life. . . " Surely these words are a far, far cry from what we are used to reading in the great array of yogic studies now available to the Western world. Initiation into Yoga is indeed a living experience between author and reader: therefore, a legitimate yogic experience in itself.
