Finding Prosperity through
the Ancient Wisdom of Yoga
by Ellen Grace O'Brian
Although millions of Westerners practice yoga simply for its health benefits, the philosophy and wisdom behind the multifaceted discipline have far more to offer. In The Jewel of Abundance, award-winning author and Kriya Yoga teacher Ellen Grace O'Brian reveals an overlooked aspect of yoga: its powerful teachings on prosperity. She draws upon the ancient Vedic tradition of yoga philosophy and practice and shows how spirituality and earthly success can complement each other, leading to realization of the higher Self. O'Brian presents a clear explanation of both the philosophy of yoga and the nuts and bolts of practice, such as setting up a daily meditation routine, incorporating mantras, discerning how to cooperate with universal principles for complete well-being, and cultivating mindfulness in action.
Along the way, she illustrates her lessons with personal stories and timeless sayings from great sages, both Eastern and Western. With O'Brian's insightful guidance, readers will discover an inexhaustible source of abundance that is available to them whenever they look within.
