Frequently Asked Questions

I cannot complete my order. A message indicates that login has failed, although I have an active account. What shall I do?

There could be several reasons for this:
• The login that you used might have been for the Siddha Yoga path website. The Siddha Yoga Bookstore website and the Siddha Yoga path website are two separate websites. This means that you need to create a login for the Siddha Yoga Bookstore website separately.
• You might have previously registered under another e-mail address.
• You previously registered as a guest.

In any of these cases, you will need to create a new account on the Siddha Yoga Bookstore website.
