Please register for the AYP Forums whether you plan on posting messages or not. It is free and only takes a minute. It will open up many AYP forums features to you, and will be helpful for monitoring reader interest. Your email address is revealed only to those you write to directly. Select "Register" on the top menu.

The structure of the AYP forums is simple, and most actions are easy to intuit from the forum icons. There are two main categories of forums:

The forums - These were created specifically for this site and there are more than 20 of them, most with a lead-in posting from Yogani. An unlimited number of new topics may be created in these forums. Replies are automatically appended to each topic in a string, or thread.

The Yahoo AYP Forum Archive - These are from the old Yahoo forum, with over 1,000 postings in over 200 topic threads, preserved here on this site. These can still be replied to. It is requested that new topics be started in the forums.

Search: Any or all of the forum and archive topics can be searched for words and phrases. Select "Search" on the top menu. "Subject Only" searches will yield more targeted results.

New Postings: To find new activity since your last visit, or for any prior period desired, select "Active Topics" on the top menu.

Editing Posts: Posts can be edited within the edit time limits set by the forum administrators. In most forum categories the present edit window is 2 weeks from the original post date. If a post is editable, the edit icon (pencil) will be visible in the header of the post. No one else can edit your posts, except a moderator or administrator, who will never edit content, but may correct a formatting error on rare occasions.

Bug Note on Links: Direct links in postings will not work if followed immediately by a punctuation mark like a period, comma or semicolon. Parentheses and brackets are okay, and will not disable the link. It is recommended to test all links in "Preview" mode before posting.

Moderating: All forums are moderated to assure the appropriateness of the discussions, helpful support on the AYP practices, correct topic placement, and no spam. Inappropriate material (abusive conduct, off-topic posts, proselytizing, ad nauseum arguing, guru/tradition/teaching-bashing, spam, etc.) will not be posted. If a topic is placed in a mismatched forum, it may be moved by a moderator, so please do your best to post in a forum appropriate to your subject matter. The IDs of those who come to the forums to post spam will be blocked.

The focus of the AYP forums is on spiritual practices and experiences. Posts focusing on political, cultural, social, environmental, etc. issues and causes will not be approved by the moderators. This is not to say such matters are not important, but they are not appropriate for the AYP forums. If such discussions were permitted, it would distract from the purpose of the forums.

Support for the AYP Practices versus Discussions on Other Systems:
These forums are for support discussions relating to the AYP techniques and their results. If you are able to offer assistance to others who have questions about the AYP practices and related experiences as detailed in the AYP lessons and books, feel free to do so. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

It is understood that there are many questions about how other systems of practices may relate to the AYP system. We do our best to address these, and they should be posted in the Other Systems or other non-AYP practice support forum category, not in forum categories and topics that are for support on the AYP practices. This applies especially in support topics for AYP Deep Meditation and Spinal Breathing Pranayama, where assuring clarity on the techniques is very important.

If you are visiting the forums to discuss other systems of practice only, then you have come to the wrong place. We no longer support other system discussions that are not related to the AYP system and/or complementary in some way. For discussions that are entirely about other systems, it is suggested to take them to other forums on the internet that are able to accommodate them better than we can here.

Note: Due to the high volume of heated sectarian arguments concerning Kriya Yoga in the AYP forum over the years, nearly always unrelated to AYP support discussions and requiring a large effort for moderation, as of March 1, 2017 we are no longer hosting Kriya Yoga discussions anywhere in the forum.

Copyrighted Material: It is recommended to use good judgment ("fair use") in quoting copyrighted material, so as not to infringe upon the owner's rights. This would include listing the title and author of material quoted (and a link if available), so interested readers may obtain the book or article being referred to. Members are responsible for all content they post in the forums.

Please make sure to clearly identify material you are quoting by using quotation marks, the quote icon function, or a different color than the rest of your post.

Also be aware that AYP does not condone posting of links to websites that enable illegal downloading of copyrighted material. Whenever we become aware of such links, they will be removed. If you are aware of any such links in the AYP Forums, please notify the moderators by email here.

AYP Website and Lessons: The AYP Forums are part of the AYP website and are closely related to the hundreds of free lessons on advanced yoga practices available here. Select "Home" on the top menu to go to the AYP home page. The home page address is From there, it is easy to find the Main and Tantra Lesson Directories, Links Section, Testimonials, Topic Index, etc.

AYP Books: The AYP Easy Lessons books, the Secrets of Wilder novel and the AYP Enlightenment Series books are available via links throughout the website, or directly at

A Reminder: Each is responsible for his or her own spiritual progress, and for the methods applied. What you do with the information in the AYP writings is your call.

Questions: If you have questions about navigating the AYP Forums or Lessons, please post them in the Satsang Cafe. Also review the Forum FAQ.

May you find useful information here, and good friends. Practice wisely, and enjoy!

The guru is in you.
