Out of my over 4000 posts, I would say about 500 of them are in depth articles relating to Meditation, Yoga, Hinduism and Spirituality how I learned it according to my tradition.

There is no book like it and a book I would like to have read myself...more like a magazine I wish I would have been out there for me to read years ago...so I am writing it for myself and also to leave a piece of me behind in the world, so that my existence has a purpose for future generations.

The reason why I am telling you all about it here, is because I already have an idea for the chapters (of the FIRST book):

Chapter 1 - Patanjali's Eightfold Path - An Exposition

Chapter 2 - The Ten Spiritual Virtues - Yamas

Chapter 3 - Trataka - Fixed Gazing Awareness and Techniques For Opening the Third Eye

Chapter 4 - Nadi Shodhana - Alternate Nostril Breathing and Breath Flow Regulation

Chapter 5 - Surya Namaskar - Salute to the Sun - The Ultimate Full Yoga Workout.

Chapter 6 - Sahaja Yoga - Low-Impact Yoga for Children and the Elderly.

Chapter 7 - Pratyahara - Withdrawing The Senses

Chapter 8 - Yoga Nidra, The Sleep of the Yogis

Chapter 9 - Rudra Granthi - The Last Psychic Knot

Chapter 10 - Arul Vaaku - The Hindu Spiritual Ecstatic Trance

Chapter 11 - Kundalini - The Vehicle of Consciousness

Chapter 12 - Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra - The Mantra of Immortality

Chapter 13 - Gayatri Mantra and the Rig Veda

Chapter 14 - Nirvana Shatakam - Adi Shankaracharya

Chapter 15 - The Ten Most Auspicious Forms of Shiva

Chapter 16 - Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Overview

Chapter 17 - Challenging Negative Thoughts And Behaviours

Chapter 18 - Learning and Cultivating Patience

Chapter 19 - Kindness - Little Acts, Big Impacts

Chapter 20 - Jung and The Shadow

Chapter 21 - The Last Shamans of Bali

Chapter 22 - The Best Spiritual Quotes of All Time

Then, there are going to be some other sections - Appendices:

A. Poetry - For poems by myself and inspirational poems from others
B. Recipes - All my favourite vegetarian recipe dishes from Polynesia, Indonesia, Malaysia and South India.
C. Ayurvedic Herbs and remedies - Stuff like Ginger, Turmeric, Kava Kava, Garlic, Brahmi, Shilajit, Chawan Pryash, Fenugreek, Guava Leaves etc

This is the basic outline of the book.

Shivani Devi ji can you please teach me how to do Pratyahara ?

If not possible then okay.It is just a request.

Well, if you did write this book, it would have to be thousands of pages long.

Personally, I think most of these topics merit a book of their own. I would choose one or two of them and go into as much detail as you can, with a significant layer of original research and personal experience. Especially for a first book, it usually doesn't make sense to be too ambitious, it is best to start slow and small, then move on from there with your next book.

With the current state of the publishing industry, it is likely to be self-published anyway, at least initially. There are platforms where you can publish your book as an e-book and get a cut from sales, if there are any, or just offer it for free.
