Eight Lectures on Yoga is a book by English occultist and teacher Aleister Crowley about the practice of Yoga. The work is largely a demystified look at yoga, using little to no jargon or satirical humor. In the book, Crowley instructs students on the steps to approach mysticism through Yoga, and details the complications that arise along the path. One intent Crowley had in writing the book was to dispel the various myths surrounding Yoga in Europe at the time. Crowley covers, in detail, the philosophical, mathematical, and scientific aspects of Yoga. This is not a book to be read while standing or running. It is a high water mark of Crowley’s literary career, incorporating all that we should expect from one who had experimented with and mastered most technical forms of spiritual growth. There is humor here, a great deal of sagacity, and much practical advice. This book cannot be dispensed with for the student for whom Yoga is ‘the way.’
