In recent years, M. L. Gharote edited several works on or
around the Hatha(yoga)pradipika. See, e.g., the web site
of the Lonavla Yoga Institute
Among these you will find:
- _Hathapradipika (with 10 chapters) of Svatmarama and
Yogaprakasika commentary by Balakrsna_ / ed. by M. L.
Gharote ; Parimal Devnath. - Lonavla : The Lonavla Yoga
Institute, 2001. - ISBN 81-901176-6-1
- _Hatharatnavali (a treatise on hathayoga) of
Srinivasayogi_ / critically ed. by M. L. Gharote [et al.].
- Lonavla : The Lonavla Yoga Institute, 2002. - ISBN
There is also a Hathapradipikavrtti in Marathi by a
certain Bhojatmaja. In the Rajasthan Puratan Granthmala,
M. L. Gharote published a Hindi treatise inspired by the
- Jayatarama krta Jogapradipika / samp.: Em. El. Gharote.
- Jodhpur : Rajasthan Oriental Research Institute, 1999
(Rajasthana Puratana Granthamala ; 192) [main text in
Hindi, introduction in English]
In 1989, Gharote brought out together with V. A. Bedekar:
_A descriptive catalogue of Yoga manuscripts_. - Lonavla :
The Kaivalyadhama S. M. Y. M. Samiti, 1989. Despite the
title it is a tabular listing of mss. The "descriptive"
part is rather small, if existing at all.
