YOGIC SECRETS OF THE VEDAS: Exploring the roots of yoga and ayurveda
This important work bridges a gap between western and eastern systems of yoga and ayurveda. Yogi Baba Prem examines from the “Yoga sutras of Patanjali” to examining the real purpose of deities and meaning of God in practice with yoga, meditation and ayurveda. Students will also learn how to begin a deep and personal practice of VEDIC YOGA. Yogi Baba Prem is one of the few westerners authorized and acknowledged knowledgeable enough to teach this ancient system of yoga. This book is excellent for beginners but provides depth that will engage intermediate students of meditation, yoga and ayurveda.
UNDERSTANDING THE KUNDALINI
Yogi Harinam Baba Prem Tom Beal approaches the kundalini from a positive attitude and not from a position of fear or secrecy.

It is a powerful catalyst for personal and world transformation.” If you want to understand the basics of the kundalini energy, then you must read this book to start with; you will be introduced to the chakra symbols, sexuality and spirituality, mantra, breathing exercises, as well as several meditations and much more. It is a concise handbook on kundalini yoga for students of all levels.
