The Yoga Classics Input Project has one singular, sacred goal: To identify, document, digitize—and
freely distribute—the rapidly disappearing Sanskrit manuscripts of Yoga`s ancient Indian heritage.
These rare palm-leaf texts have been subject to the ravages of insects, humidity and general disregard

The precious manuscripts that YCIP is determined to save contain the inspirational and instructive accounts
that teach, step by step, how to become happier and healthier, evolve our capacity, and realize the goals of
a true Yoga practice.

Diamond Cutter Press (DCP) was founded by John Cerullo in 2003 in order to publish books on Buddhism
and yoga, including the book How Yoga Works by Geshe Michael Roach and Lama Christie McNally. That
