The Radiance Sutras by Lorin Roche
In his new book The Radiance Sutras, PhD Lorin Roche presents his fresh perspective on each of the 112 Sanskrit teachings, along with his unique guidance in how to meditate with, embody, and practice them—all through what he describes as “answering the call of the sutras you love.”
Through this text, yoga and meditation students alike can nurture their own personal relationships with these living wisdom teachings. Through a warm exploration of the divinity of one’s own body, the alchemical power of Sanskrit, yoga meditation, and the depth of one’s connection to the energies of life, The Radiance Sutras encourages the reader to reconnect with both themselves as well as the ancient Sanskrit practice. Roche has both studied and practiced meditation for over 40 years and developed his own approach called “Instinctive Meditation”—there are few people more versed in the topic of Sanskrit, meditation, and yoga.
“If you are wild and longing for a more profound experience of love, this book is the perfect companion and teacher. If you’re afraid to explore the inner reaches of your heart but long for that freedom, you can trust the magnificent journey The Radiance Sutras offer. You will be blessed by this book-it will forever change you in the most positive, surprising ways.” – Judith Orloff, MD, author of The Ecstasy of Surrender

Keep this book by your bed, hold its inspiration in your heart, and let these verses pulse through your life with the radiance of the tantric revelation.” – Sally Kempton, author of Meditation for the Love of It and Awakening Shakti
