Survey material with an obvious spin, but that is to be expected from something given to me for free on the street.

That being said, I learned an important thing about meditation from it: keep your eyes sort of open and always keep the tip of your nose in sight, that will make it easier to dive into meditation without falling asleep.

Other than that, it's a pretty decent survey on the average amount of hinduism a westerner is likely to know. One can pick out the base terms, although the book isn't very good at explaining them ... it's almost as if certain terms were left unexplained on purpose?

It's "join and pay money to the International Society of Krishna Consciousness" factor is actually pretty subtle, definitely included but with most focus of devotion not being to the founder or the society, but Krishna as interpreted by the founder.

Other than that, it has standard tropes of religious philosophy I am not a fan of ... a dualism where the body and physicality is declared terrible, a contemporary degraded age where previous ones were declared way better, an implicit assumption that the reader is male and that femininity is an inferior condition that mostly exists as sexual temptations, stuff like that. Enlightenment is this air fairy thing everyone ostensibly wants but rather than being about one's state of grace it's the reward for devoting one's self to Krishna at all times (renounce your worldly relationships, they are but bodily relationships, but Krishna is mother/father/son/husband (never wife.))
