Synopses & Reviews
This is a collection of talks by Thakar on the subtle differences between the states of concentration, attention, awareness, and meditation that can help enhance life.
Blossoms of Friendship introduces the Yoga Wisdom Classics series from Rodmell Press. This book is a collection of talks given by Vimala Thakar, in 1973, in Mount Abu, India. In the style of Krishnamurti, she describes the subtle differences between the states of concentration, attention, awareness, and meditation, and discusses the roles of guide, teacher, master, and guru. In the Foreword, publisher Donald Moyer writes that Vimala Thakar's insights "provide a clear exegesis of the last three stages of the eightfold yogic path: dharana, dhyana, and samadhi. For students who wish to deepen their understanding of Patanjali's Yoga Sutra, these talks will be especially welcome."
