Life is more than ever dominated and shaped by the influence of science and technology. Yet only the deeper values, upheld by the great spiritual traditions, can ensure that the outer progress rests on a corresponding inner progress in peace, goodwill and enlightenment.
The Yoga tradition has always emphasized personal enquiry and experiment, and, like science, seeks to realize the deeper truth behind phenomena. Its inner discoveries in the field of self-knowledge will be of interest to those currently investigating the nature of consciousness.
This book considers various aspects of contemporary life, and shows how the ancient wisdom of the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita has the power to infuse modern life with meaning and purpose.
'This splendid volume.. is no 'how-to' book in the usual sense, but studies the spiritual and philosophical basis of yoga, with specific reference to contemporary thought and ideas. Very, very highly recommended.'
