    Love this book!

    I had read the "Concise Yoga Vasistha" by the same author and found it mind expanding, so I couldn't wait to get this version. I think it's the best translation available. This book will change you idea of reality.

    A reviewer

    Recommend reading a page a day, the knowledge is deep and pristine. It is said if you read it 7 times you get enlightened. Dunno about that but just reading it through 1ce took me almost 3 years, and certainly was transformational.
