Book Description
Yoga came to Tibet from India more than a thousand years ago, and it was quickly absorbed into the culture's rich traditions. In this small book readers will discover Heart Yoga, which developed over the centuries in the Gelukpa tradition of the Dalai Lamas. The program presented here combines popular yoga exercises wtih special Tibetan poses, and methods of working from the inside to give a healthy and a happy heart.

Roach discovered a number of previously unknown Tibetan works on yoga in the course of his ongoing efforts to find and preserve ancient Tibetan Buddhist texts. He discusses the ideas and insights presented in these texts and places them within the context of the Buddhist tradition. To help readers incorporate this ancient wisdom in their daily lives, he provides a specific regime of yoga postures and meditations. Combining instructive illustrations with the unique philosophical underpinnings of the Buddhist approach, Geshe Roach has created a unique program for yoga on a physical and spiritual level.

Book Description
This exceptional work of scholarship is the work of the scholar who brought the world The Tibetan Book of the Dead and an equally important work entitled Tibet´s Great Yogi Milarepa. This book, perhaps the most valuable in the trilogy, exposes the deeds of some of the principal yogas and meditations which many of the most illustrious Tibetan and Indian philosophers, including Tulopa, Naropa, Marpa, and Milerepa, employed in attaining Right Knowledge.

Books, audiotapes, and classes about yoga are today as familiar as they are widespread, but Westerners have only recently become engaged in the meditative doctrines of the East - only since the 1920s, in fact. In the early part of the 20th century, it was the pioneering efforts of keen scholars like W.Y. Evans-Wentz, the late editor of this volume, that triggered the West's ongoing occidental fascination with such phenomena as yoga, Zen, and meditation. This companion to the "Tibetan Book of the Dead" is a collection of seven authentic Tibetan yoga texts that first appeared in English in 1935. In these pages, amid photographs and reproductions of yoga paintings and manuscripts, readers will encounter some of the principal meditations used by Hindu and Tibetan gurus and philosophers throughout the ages in the attainment of Right Knowledge and Enlightenment. Special commentaries precede each translated text, and a comprehensive introduction contrasts the tenets of Buddhism with European notions of religion, philosophy and science. This book is intended for general readers interested in Tibet and Tibetan Buddhism, and students following courses on Eastern religions or Buddhism.

Reader Review
Ancient but useful., October 23, 2000
Reviewer: Meryl Reis from Yardley, PA USA
W.Y.Evans-Wentz travelled extensively in the far east and wrote several books about Tibetan Buddhism. He writes with a great combination of scholarship and passion for the religion. Having met 'remarkable men' throughout India and elsewhere, he has a tendency to blend Buddhism and Hinduism together. Those who have travelled to India or Nepal have seen this blending, and a student of history notes Buddhism's firm roots in Hinduism. In this book, Evans Wentz gives good translations of exotic Tibetan Buddhist texts. Anyone looking for the roots of modern mystical fiction like Carlos Castaneda will find them here. Explained are the procedures of producing 'Psychic Heat', projecting consciousness into animals, and being aware of the dream state. This is a great book to inspire the cautious beginner or to come back to after practicing seated meditation for several years, because there is practical advice on how to breath and keep your back straight,as well as deeper meditations. One might ask, "How did the powers that be ever let this kind of information be put into print?", as a lot of it is extremely esoteric and possibly unadvisable for beginning practitioners.

Be sure to read the author's wonderful introduction and extensive footnotes, which help to weave a story about spirituality, both Eastern and Western.

Reader Review
An Excellent Guide to Tibetan Bon Buddhist Practice, May 29, 2002
Reviewer: Nicq MacDonald (see more about me at from Sioux Falls, SD United States
After reading Sogyal Rinpoche's "Tibetan Book of Living and Dying", I was intrigued by the practice of "Dream Yoga", which, although mentioned and discussed several times in Sogyal's book, was never covered in any depth. "Living and Dying" didn't include any instructions in the practice of this exercise either, so I decided to look elsewhere. While glancing through the Eastern Religion section of a local bookstore, I stumbled upon this fine little volume.

Wangyal Rinpoche delivers more than a guide to the practice of Dream Yoga- he delivers a guide to a complete nondual practice. The book includes meditation instructions, Guru Yoga and Dakini practices, breathing instructions, a guide to basic Tibetan bioenergetics, a little history of the Bon tradition, a brief introduction to Tantra and Dzogchen, and even a glossary filled with Tibetan and Sanskrit terms used throughout the book. There is enough here to begin a spiritual practice beyond dream yoga.

To the seeker looking for a guide to Tibetan mysticism, look no further- "The Tibetan Yogas of Dream and Sleep" is the perfect introduction.

Reader Review
Best 15 minutes spent either horizontally or vertically, January 19, 2003
Reviewer: davek4570 from the MidWest
I am familiar with the benefits of Tai-Chi, Qi-Gong, Meditation, Martial Arts, etc. Most take a couple of years of training, and 1-3 hours a day of practice to achieve the health benefits that these 6 exercises will give in 10-15 minutes a day, and you'll start feeling the benefit nearly immediately. At least I did. I'm 48 and due to various debilities can't lift weights or do violent exercises any more. I've done the rites now for about 8 months and I can move pretty much pain free and rapidly. I've benefited mentally and physically vastly out of proportion to the apparent simplicity and brevity of these exercises. I bugged my 70's something dad to try them, and once he found out how much his energy and strength levels improved, he now does the rites daily. Mom is still trying to figure out what's going on, but even she's impressed with dad's increased energy levels. Remember, they will improve your physical and mental condition, but the rites are not a cure-all. Buy the book(s) and try them anyway.
