BKH’s Book List

Books I have read between 2012 and 2018, in a somewhat chronological order.

  • The New Book of YOGA from The Sivananda Vedanta Yoga Centre
  • 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami – This is a novel, but it was important in my journey. While reading it I realized that I was co-creating what I was reading. I noticed the bounds between the text and story, the thoughts in my mind and my feelings dissolving and intertwining. I observed how a conscious choice of association towards one or another person in the book shaped following sentences. The story of the book carried over to my life, and vice versa. A curious form of experiencing non-duality.
