good yoga book

I want to get another yoga book and if anyone has any experience on something that would suit me please feel free to let me know. What I am looking for is one that would discuss what we should use to cook, sleeping postures that are good for our body, things we should use to clean ourselves and how we should clean ourselves, what we should do to get ready for our postures. Basically I see a lot of books talk mostly about postures and a little about the rest of yoga. I want to know why yoga/yogis do what they do and the reasoning for it. I dont want a sugar coated book to fit our modern socioty, I want the age ole wisdom

any ideas?

Hi Tube

Let me know what it is you plan to gain from the book..Because I believe you are looking for books on 4-5 varied subjects.

1. What we should use to cook (Buy Harish Johari book.. He explains how yogic principles/ayurvedic cooking principles can be applied to the food we eat)

2. Cleansing (Are you talking about Jala neti, Nauli, Bhasti Kriyas??)

3. Ready for postures (How about Swami Vishnu Devananda's Book??)

4. Sleep Postures (hmmm..doesn't shava asana cut it for you brother?? ).

5. Yoga and the reason behind it (Swami Vishnu Devananda's Book, BKS Iyengar Light on Yoga and Light on Pranayama..Infact a lot of reasons are given even for the way the names of yogic postures came into existence)..

Well i ordered a couple of books and a friend is giving me one as well. in the last few days I started reading a book and it takes care of number 2 on the list you made, I will look into number 1, 3, and 5 so thanks for that. On number 4 I was kind of looking for what did yogis think of sleep, what did they sleep on, and what did different postures while sleeping accomplish\

thanks for your help
