Was America's greatest president a past-life yogi? Read this book to find out-and unleash your "inner Lincoln"! Have you ever wondered about life after death, or whether you have lived before? Is it possible to find evidence of these important issues in the pages of history? Are you fascinated by metaphysical secrets in the lives of famous, historic people? Do you aspire to greatness, and long to know how to achieve it? Then The Yoga of Abraham Lincoln is for you! This book is unlike anything you have read before. It is the story of a metaphysical mystery locked in the pages of history-and a search that uncovered evidence of past lives. About fifty years ago, a great master of yoga-Paramhansa Yogananda, author of the spiritual classic, Autobiography of a Yogi-declared that Abraham Lincoln had been an advanced Himalayan yogi in a past life, who died with a desire to help bring about racial equality. One 30-year yoga expert decided to investigate. After eight years of paging through dusty, out-of-print biographies, newspapers, and magazines, studying library microfilm, and speaking with historians, Richard Salva uncovered more than 200 links between the teachings of yoga and the life of Lincoln, including: That Lincoln never joined a church (he felt out of tune with Western religious thought). That, like many great yogis, Lincoln had phenomenal physical strength. A yoga origin for Lincoln's prophetic dreams. Intriguing evidence that Lincoln was a past-life meditator. The Lincoln connections span nearly all of the teachings and practices of Hindu yogis-and present convincing evidence both of life after death, and that Lincoln was a past-life yogi. The Yoga of Abraham Lincoln reveals the hidden spiritual history of America's greatest president. It takes the reader on an adventurous, historical spin through the deeper teachings of yoga- the spiritual principles behind the yoga postures that millions of Americans now practice -and shows how Lincoln's greatness was based on these universal principles that everyone can apply in their own lives, to unleash their "inner Lincoln". This is the first in-depth study of reincarnation based on the life of an actual, historic figure. The reader is not asked to take Salva's words for what he has written, but can feel free to verify the information in books found in public libraries. Forty percent of Americans today believe in reincarnation or consider it a possibility-yet few are aware of how past-life patterns affect their character, personality, and the events of their daily lives. The Yoga of Abraham Lincoln provides convincing proof that our spiritual gains of wisdom and truth are permanent gifts we carry with us from lifetime to lifetime. The Yoga of Abraham Lincoln (103 pg. e-book, with photos and illustrations) is excerpted and adapted from a larger work, The Reincarnation of Abraham Lincoln, which has received kudos from the critics-including Five Stars from Foreword Clarion Reviews and Midwest Book Review. It sets a new trend in past-life studies and, in the words of Swami Kriyananda, direct disciple and spiritual heir of Paramhansa Yogananda, "deserves to become a classic." Richard Salva is an author, a minister, and a 30-year expert on yoga, meditation, and past lives. He has given hundreds of talks on reincarnation, yoga philosophy, and history in the United States and in Europe, and he has appeared on NPR and 21st Century Radio.
