There is material yoga, and there is spiritual yoga. The material kind will make us feel more peaceful, limber, and healthy. The spiritual kind will teach us how to attain a state of ever-increasing transcendental pleasure. In this book Srila Prabhupāda teaches the path of spiritual yoga – Kṛṣṇa consciousness – elaborating on the instructions a divine king named Ṛṣabhadeva imparted to His sons long, long ago in India. The verses and purports are from the fifth canto of the Bhāgavatam.

Bhakti-yoga teaches us how to enter into that realm of eternal love. The basic principles of Bhakti-yoga are presented in this introductory book.
