Some Yoga teachers want to go deeper than the Hatha Yoga Pradipika and the Yoga Sutras. Here are some great resources. If you have patience and the desire to read Sanskrit you may find them useful.

1. Vedas - includes four texts that are sacred to Hindus today. They are said to have been written between 3300-1500 BC by people living in the Indus Valley who spoke Sanskrit. They instructed them through hymns and chants to perform rituals and sacrifices as a way to receive a better life.

2. Brahmanas - believed to have been composed around 100-800BC. There are four main commentaries that explain how to perform the rituals in the four Vedas. These are Rigveda, Samaveda, Yajurveda, and Atharvaveda.

3. Aranyakas - This is translated to mean books of the forest. These chapters lend a philosophical and mystical understanding and meaning to the rituals of the Brahmanas, while maintaining the thread of awareness and intention toward the Absolute.
