Vipassana Meditation Technique 

This website has extremely detailed and skillfully written descriptions on how to perform one of the most popular meditation techniques, vipassana. If you have questions like what exactly should I do and expect during meditation, this is a great page to read. It also has great descriptions of specific phenomenon that occur during meditation for advanced practitioners to benefit from as well. 

Audio Dharma 

AudioDharma is a monastery in California that has fantastic audio content for learning about Buddhism. I highly recommend their guided meditations, specifically I any meditations from Gil Fronsdale.  AudioDharma also has great talks on fundamental to advanced principles of Buddhism discussing topics such as: loving-kindness, mindfulness, karma, the eightfold path, and much more.

Yoga Sutras of Patanjali 

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali is the original yogic manuscript. All forms of yoga that we know today stem from this root. It is a deeply philosophical piece that takes time to digest.

For many people in America Yoga is a few hours of peaceful contemplative exercise (asanas). Although this may be the extent of practice for many, performing yoga positions constitutes just 1 of 8 essential limbs of yoga.

By reading the origin text of yoga, you can gain a very deep appreciation for the depth of yoga.  This is the Bible, the Torah, the Quran of yoga. It contains a message with the deepest truths and goals of the practice.
