E6 (Svarnagasurendra):
# Hello to all yogis and magicians;

and, presumably, magic yogis.

# ...Swami Rama's....

Frederick Lenz?
	"Take Me For a Ride" Swami Rama?
or some other swami?

# "Liber Iod sub figurÔ DCCCXXXI" 


it's about 13 screenfuls. formerly called 'Vesta'.
it says:

#  1. This is the book of drawing all to a point.                          
#  2. Herein are described three methods whereby the 
#	consciousness of the Many may be melted to 
#	that of the One.                                         

Book Four has it as:

 Liber Yod sub figura 831                                              
   An instruction giving three methods of reducing the manifold           
   consciousness to the Unity. Adapted to facilitate the task of the       
   attainment of Raja Yoga and of the knowledge and conversation of        
   the Holy Guardian Angel. 
Indian/psuedo-Jewish cross?
and you're simultaneously studying material by Zen Master Rama?

# ...Kumbhaka is a dangerous pursuit....

what's the worst that ever happened to someone that practiced it?

# ...credibility of the practices prescribed by Swami Rama as 
# being safe to my evolutionary development and health....

I'm not aware of Swami Rama's lineage. if I knew it, I've forgotten,
but there are some very strong advocates against this instructor's
reliability and safety, I can vouch for this. same is true with 
the Beast-man, so you're right to ask for references.
