    Book details

"Self-Inquiry - Dawn of the Witness and the End of Suffering" provides practical methods for making use of abiding inner silence (the Witness) cultivated in Deep Meditation, resulting in increased inner stability and happiness amidst the ups and downs of life. The practice of Self-Inquiry also aids us in realizing the ultimate truth of existence - the Oneness that we are and the Unity of all that exists. With the dawn of the Witness, we develop an increasing ability to observe our thoughts as objects. As our sense of self shifts from our thoughts to the silent Witness within, the grip of suffering is ended. Yogani is the author of ground-breaking books on highly effective spiritual practices, including: Advanced Yoga Practices – Easy Lessons for Ecstatic Living (two comprehensive user-friendly textbooks), and The Secrets of Wilder, a powerful spiritual novel. The "AYP Enlightenment Series" makes these profound practices available for the first time in a series of concise instruction books. "Self-Inquiry" is the seventh book in the series, preceded by "Diet, Shatkarmas and Amaroli," "Samyama," "Asanas, Mudras and Bandhas," "Tantra," "Spinal Breathing Pranayama," and "Deep Meditation."

Yogani is the author of the Advanced Yoga Practices (AYP) system, including more than a dozen Instructional Titles available in Paperback, Kindle eBook and AudioBook editions, covering all aspects of Full-Scope Yoga Practice. Since 1970, he has crossed the lines between many traditions, developing an effective integration of methods including Deep Meditation, Spinal Breathing Pranayama, Hatha, Kundalini, Tantra, Self-Inquiry, and more. It is a flexible, scientific approach rather than a rigid, arbitrary one, and open to public scrutiny, as all spiritual knowledge should be nowadays. He has no desire for guru status - only to have the joy of making a small contribution to helping the disciplines of spiritual practice become open to everyone. He wishes to remain anonymous, preserving a quiet life in practices. AYP is not about the author. It is about all who long for knowledge.

Review Text

  • By A. Watson on 1 December 2010

    Einstein said: "If you can't explain it simply, you don't know it well enough." Well this is not the case with Yogani's book.This is really simple, but very, very effective in teaching you how effective self enquiry is carried out. At just over 100 pages he gets right to the point, and doesn't waste any paper! There are no abstract, theosophical terms used, and no Sanskrit in sight! It is so simple to understand and is a much needed foundation to understand other self enquiry books - if you feel the need to read any after this one.If you are new to this then I would recommend you read, and practice Deep Meditation - Pathway to Personal Freedom. It is all mentioned why in this book!

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading Yogani's latest book on Self-Inquiry. In fact, I have found all the books in the "AYP Enlightenment Series" to be like a breath of fresh air, concise, straight forward, but above all, containing effective techniques.I personally found the book extremely useful in putting Advaita into the context of my yoga practice. I feel this book is very important, given the popularity of Advaita and the "do nothing" approach to answering the ultimate question "Who Am I".This book is an important and welcome addition to an excellent series.

    Hmm... perhaps this book isn't on my "wavelength" but I was kind of expecting a practical in depth book about self-enquiry based on the grandiose title - I wasn't too far into the book when I realised rather than being a practical "where the rubber meets the road" book, this seemed more "where the fluff meets the clouds and fairy dust". Perhaps a bit unfair as I ended up skipping through the book - it just seemed far too "blah blah blah" initially - maybe I threw the baby out with the bath water! Maybe I had an unrealistic expectation of "it does what it says on the can". Don't know - but from what I read, it's not too obvious what value this book might provide to anyone.

    Ok, not bad ,but found less in this book than the other ones I have read

    I have read other books in the AYP series and they are all great. This one was particularly helpful to me as I have just started learning to meditate. For anyone new to meditation it would be beneficial to read this. It makes sense of a lot of inner thoughts and feelings I have been experiencing since beginning yoga practice and meditation. The style of writing is unique - a lovely blend of personal relation and universal spiritual concepts. I often felt like Yogani was speaking directly to me and I definitely found this book at the right time. If you are experiencing blocks or inner experiences you do not understand read this book, it will certainly help you.
