This is a 1916 translation of a rare 18th century palm-leaf manuscript written in both Sinhalese and Pali. It is a manual of "Yoga practice," by which the translator means the practice of samadhi and the jhanas.
This book is not part of the Pali Canon, though there is some correspondence between the methods described here and those found in Visuddhimagga and other parts of the Pali Canon, with, as the editor, Mrs. C.A.F. Rhys Davids, admits, "certain discrepancies."The PTS Pali edition is called: The Yogavacara's Manual
