oops. here are some other additions:

Like a leisurely stroll, the reader flows between the pages as if the logic present were the oil from an old Hindu reading lamp that has dripped upon his head and has lubricated his mind.

The rigid dogmas of some religions are cast aside by plate six which shows a young Krishna running to his mother, titled: “We can love the Supreme Lord as master, as friend, as child or as husband” (50).

Unlike a stroll, a reader becomes discouraged as he trudges through interesting but directionless prose with a forced connection to yoga that seems like a dwarfed banyan tree forced to grow in a dish for ornamental purposes.

Readers are threatened by an image depicting the transmigration of the soul (reincarnation) from skeleton to fetus, on through manhood, old age, death and to a new body. Rather than curtailing preconceptions, this reinforces the idea that one must have specific beliefs to succeed in yoga. It does not show the non-sectarian side of spirituality that is seen on plate six of The Perfection of Yoga.
