The Sri Ramanasramam, in Tiruvannamalai, is the ashram of one of India's greatest saints, Sri Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi, also known as the Sage of Arunachala. His main teaching was the practice of Self-enquiry, answering questions such as "Who am I?" as a means to remove ignorance and discover the true Self.

One year ago a good Italian friend told me "Hey, I'm going to walk to Santiago de Compostela!". "Really" I said. "Awesome! I would love to do it too". I immediately reminded the book from Paulo Coelho, "El peregrino de Compostela" ("The Pilgrimage" in English) that I had read many years before. I actually don't remember anything about the book except for a thought that came to my mind... "Wow, does this really exist? I would love to do a pilgrimage trip like this".

"Living with the Himalayan Masters" reminded me of Paramahansa Yogananda's Autobiography of a Yogi. It is also the autobiography of a great Indian yogi, Swami Rama of the Himalayas, but written in a very different style. Although Swami Rama was considered a great yogi from early childhood he writes in a very humble way. Whenever he tells a story he shows how immature, egotistic or arrogant he was and how his master, with a very loving touch, helped him to overcome his weaknesses.

I just loved this book!! is so small, just about 150 pages long, so easy to read but still filled with so many inspiring words and and ideas to help us change our believes so we can become millionaires, and although the book talks about money the principles shared here by the author can help us achieve any kind of dreams. The book includes subjects like expanding our conciousness, mastering our mind, positive thinking and developing the power of concentration. It talks about understanding the power of the mind and utilizing that power to achieve all our dreams using simple tips like knowing what we really want, having a clear vision, courage and faith that we can achieve it. It even includes a concentration and a meditation technique.

Autobiography of a Yogi, a book that changes people's lives, a classic among the spiritual books of the world. It's one of those books that you can read again and again and always discover something new. Every spiritual seeker, regardless of their path, has at one point or another come across this book. But, have you read it already? If not then now it's probably the time to do so.
I'm not a very devotional person, and I normally don't talk about God, but every time that I read The Bhagavad Gita I just feel like God himself came down to the world and wrote this book with His/Hers/Its own hand. It was the first and the best yoga philosophy book that I’ve ever read. It has literally change my life and I hold it very dear to my heart.

The book "Taming the Kundalini" is a collections of letters written by Swami Satyananda Saraswati, disciple of Swami Sivananda, to one of his female disciples, a yogini. These letters are actually detailed instructions given to his disciple in order to guide her in her sadhana (spiritual practices) and to transform her into a real yogi. The letters include instructions on hatha yoga, meditation and much more.
