The Caraypadas -- the Yoga Songs and Poetry of the Maha Siddhas from Medieval India. If there was one tradition that exemplified the height of eclectic yoga in medieval India before the barbarian invasions, it is the tradition of the 8th to 12th century Great Yoga Masters (Maha Siddhas). Not the best translation but complete by Hasna Jasimuddin Moudud who researched the original documents. From his book "A Thousand Year Old Bengali Mystic Poetry" (click Here for more).

The Gorakhbod (at ShivaShakti.com)
The Yoga Upanishads, translations by K. Narayanasvami Aiyar who did the work in 1938 (revised 1952) published by the Adyar library. They contain techniques of pranayama, asana, mudra, pratyhara, dharana, mantra, visualization mostly belonging to traditional laya and/or hatha yoga traditions. This translation is cumbersome and somewhat inaccurate, but for the most part one of the few that has so far been translated. The texts classified as the "Yoga Upansihads" are the most recent Upansihads and not widely known or translated. They can be seen as an attempt for reconciliation between hatha and tantra yoga on one hand and the recent devlopment of Sankara's non-dual Vedanta and Mahayana Buddhism on the other hand. As most reconciliations go, there exist complaints of being expropriated or hijacked by the purists on both sides. Other texts and Upanishads in translation are also availble from Celextel's Online Library.

Dhyana Bindu Yoga Upanishad, trsl. by K. Narayanasvami Aiyar
Avadhuta Upansihad, translated by Prof. A. A. Ramanathan, published by The Theosophical Publishing House, Chennai. A quote from this very exceptional Upansihad:
"If infrequency of worldly dealings is sought, let there be contemplation for you. Wherefore should I, to whom worldly dealings offer no hindrance, contemplate? Because I do not have distractions, I do not need concentration, distraction or concentration being of the mind that modifies. What separate experience can there be for me, whom am of the nature of eternal experience ? What has to be done is done, what has to be gained is gained for ever. Let my dealings, worldly, scriptural or of other kinds proceed as they have started, I being neither an agent (of action) nor one affected (by it) Or, even though I have achieved what has to be achieved, let me remain on the [sacred] path for the sake of the well-being of the world. What harm for me thereby?"
Mundaka Upanishad, Translated by Swami Gambhirananda. All the Upanishads belong to teh revealed teachings (supposedly revealing the specific details contained in the Vedas). They all bear their unique gifts, but the Mundaka is my favorite, being clear, straightforward, to the point, undilluted and accessible.
"There are two kinds of knowledge to be acquired; the higher and the lower; this is what, as tradition runs, the knowers of the import of the Vedas say. Of these, the lower comprises the Rig-Veda, Yajur-Veda, Sama-Veda, Atharva-Veda, the science of pronunciation etc., the code of rituals, grammar, etymology, metre and astrology. Then there is the higher (knowledge) by which is attained that Imperishable. (By the higher knowledge) the wise realize everywhere that which cannot be perceived and grasped, which is without source, features, eyes, and ears, which has neither hands nor feet, which is eternal, multiformed, all-pervasive, extremely subtle, and undiminishing and which is the source of all. As a spider spreads out and withdraws (its thread), as on the earth grow the herbs (and trees), and as from a living man issues out hair (on the head and body), so out of the Imperishable does the Universe emerge here (in this phenomenal creation). Through knowledge Brahman increases in size. From that is born food (the Unmanifested). From food evolves Prana (Hiranyagarbha); (thence the cosmic) mind; (thence) the five elements; (thence) the worlds; (thence) the immortality that is in karmas."Upanishads Translation into English of eleven of the major Upanishads with glossary.

Ramana was a twentieth century teacher of who taught Advaita Vedanta which can be categorized as a specific method characterized by jnana yoga. It can be briefly described as an intellectual inquiry into "self" and "mind" (the mind knowing the mind) guided by Hindu scriptural authority and principles of renunciation of worldly involvement. Some teachers of this school emphasize renunciation more, while others may emphasize the wholesome bliss and expansive consciousness of the true transpersonal non-dual Self.

An Overview of Tantricism and Neo Tantricism an article by Georg Feuerstein previously appeared in the Moksha Journal Issue II. Feuerstein attempts to wed the traditional spiritual goal of tantra as a method of liberation and the need for modern Westerners to embrace a body positive and life positive living spirituality.
Yoga and Meditation (an article by Georg Feuerstein) from the Moksha Journal Issue I. This is an excellent article on dharana (contemplation and concentration techniques), but it should not be be confused with objectless dhyana (meditation) as taught by Patanjali as outlined in Sadhana pada, the first chapter of the Yoga Sutras. Here it important to distinguish between the various techniques of dharana (contemplations/concentration upon physical or mental objects) and dhyana proper which is beyond even the most subtle object where the sense of a separate observer and object of observation together with the consciousness process is dissolved. Such is the non-dual practice of dhyana which leads to samadhi.

Biosynthesis: The work of David Boadella. The word, Biosynthesis, means "integration of life”, and the word psychotherapy comes from the Greek meaning “to heal the soul”. Biosynthesis as a form of psychotherapy encompasses a multi-dimensional perspective of the person. It incorporates different life fields experience and expression. These life fields are manifest in two different forms, as a closed system and as an open system within a person. Closed systems cause character problems, physical inhibitions and spiritual contractions. Open systems reflect psychic contact, energetic vitality and a link with the qualities of the heart.

The Center for Functional Research was incorporated in 1992 as a scientific and educational nonprofit. Its central theme is that there is specific life energy in the cosmos and in the atmosphere, and that this energy is closely coupled with consciousness. The Center will support, conduct, and disseminate information on research involving the natural energetic processes in living and non-living matter, and the distorted or pathological transformations and variations of natural processes. A fundamental premise of the research associates at the center is that the same basic processes are operating at the microscopic and macroscopic level, in living and non-living systems, and that these processes are essentially energetic in nature and often co-function with the conscious and unconscious intention of human beings, including researchers. It is the aim of the Center to study these processes in the natural biological realm, in medical pathology, such as cancer, in weather in the Earth's atmosphere, and through the use of special energy accumulating and directing devices, and devices used to estimate the effect of human consciousness on biological and physical systems.
