The Revelation of the BreathBy edited by Sharon Mijares
"Faced with unrelenting stresses from daily news, relationships, health, and financial conditions, and unsatisfied with the temporary and side-effect-riddled relief that pharmaceauticals provide, millions are finding measures of peace and positive energy through mindful breathing practices." Puran has the concluding chapter in this collection of essays on various uses of breathing practice. This is a useful text for education on a variety of approaches to breathing and breath control, but we do not recommend all of the breathing practices described in it.

The Complete SayingsBy Hazrat Inayat Khan
the essence of Inayat Khan's teachings within inspirational poetry, aphorisms and prayers. While most of Inayat Khan's teachings are in the form of lectures that were transcribed, The Complete Sayings were written by Inayat Khan himself, often in the course of his daily life and following his meetings with students, embodying the heartfelt expressions of a wisdom that emerges from the mystic vision when confronted by the depth of human longing.
