    5. I should start by saying that I came close to abandoning this book after reading the first two chapters. And I'm very glad that I did not - it was a good read if you overlook some obvious issues. The book an easy read and brings together yoga and vipassana (loosely mindfulness meditation) in an elegant way. Yoga is based on a Hindu perspective while Vipassana is closely linked to Buddhist teachings. This book outlines why both of these practices are important and the benefits of implementing bot [...]

    6. I am living in a small town called Montauk, small but magically beautiful. It has stunning beaches and spectacular trees in the state park. On week end I was there, to escape from the city, leaving the stress, and worries behind. I was doing my vipassan meditation under a tree. It has given me an wonderful experience. It has cleared many of my deep-rooted fears and impressions. I am thankful to this book. It has taught me the essential spirit of vipassana meditation. I liked about 80% of this bo [...]

The approach is very different from what we normally hear.The nine principles of integrating mindfulness meditation (Vipassana) and Yoga is unique and very practical. I am extremely happy to have found and read this. I liked the micro movement meditations. This book is most suited for me at this point of my meditation practice. This book [...]

    8. I really liked this book. It has enough information to open your eyes, but not too much to scare you away. This is a book that has to be read slowly and with determination, with many pauses for looking-off-into-the-distance-deep-in-thoughts and practices. In the book Amit Ray continually brings the focus back to the simple and perfect practice of sitting, standing, walking postures and mindfulness. Ray talks as a good spiritual friend. In this book Amit Ray expresses the heart of Yoga and Vipass [...]

    9. I'm not particularly predisposed to spiritual impulses! But I love meditation particularly Vipassana meditation. The author of this book has something timeless and important to impart, and he does so with unusual intelligence, grace and divinity. This is simply a beautiful book, beautifully written. The meditation techniques of the book added much more value to me. Now, I could go into a much deeper, peaceful and meaningful meditative state.

    11. If you love meditation then you'll love this book! This book explains so much about vipassana meditation and yoga. I really enjoyed it, and will read it over and over again! The principles of integrating the mindfulness meditation with yoga are excellent. The book is very clear and understandable for all levels of meditation and yoga expertise.

    12. I have read a few other books of his and while “Yoga and Vipassana: An Integrated Life Style” is my favorite, this book is great because Amit Ray introduces - via anecdote and examples - tangible ways of becoming more happy.This lucid and beautifully written guide to Eastern meditation provides Westerners with a method of learning the skills of yoga and vipassana.

    13. There are some amazing moments in life. You cannot capture them through camera. I learn meditation from this book. First time, I was reading this book while I was traveling the coast of British Columbia. It gave my immense happiness to understand the depth of yoga and meditation. Thanks for providing nothing but the best of yoga. The book helped me to align me with the highest. This is a incredible powerful but soft book on meditation.

    14. This book is one of those timeless yoga and meditation classics that takes the fundamental precepts of new wisdom, and makes them accessible, relevant and particularly practical for someone who might be facing emotional challenges. I recommend this book to anyone who is serious about meditation and yoga, and learn the skills of life mastery. This book, and the study of (The Power of Now) are indispensable tools for those committed to creating a radiant, wholesome and vibrant life.

    15. I read a lot of articles about “how to overcome anxiety” or “how to beat depression” and those doesn’t really work for who have severe illnesses. I do think yoga with meditation can help a lot. This book is best for combining light yoga exercises with meditation. The last part of the book is the 'meat', for me, in which Ray goes into some depth about the meditation practices.

    16. This is my 2nd book of the author, the previous being Om Chanting and Meditation. The book deals with combining the good features of two different streams of meditation - Yoga and Vipassana. It says that they are not mutually exclusive and can be used to great benefit together. It has many meditation and yoga examples which a person can do.

    17. I do not have much experience on Vipassana meditation. In my college days I used to do yoga exercises. Now, I am too lazy. I am not getting any time to do meditation or yoga. But reading this book is fantastic. The author has given an excellent explanation of the two techniques. I loved it.

    18. I loved this book. I felt this book is a rare gem on meditation and yoga that few people know about. This is one that I will definitely read again. The book cultivated the interests to see yoga in a new way. This is a book that everyone should read.

    19. A classic book on integrated yoga with mindfulness meditation. I am slowly reading the book. Exercises are very easy to follow,

    20. I was in the biggest breakdown of my life. This book helped me out. It gives me the practices of simple yoga exercises with deep meditation.

    21. Good book! Dr Amit Ray given a fresh and new approach to get the benefits of mindfulness meditation and yoga. It helped me.

    22. I hear this book is excellent but cannot find it anywhere. has someone been able to purchase it on line or order it through a bookstore (in the US)?anticipated thanks
