Yoga and Indian Philosophy 
Yoga and Indian Philosophy 
Description

About the Book

While Indian philosophy has been, in our time, the object of mainly academic interest, Yoga has become, in recent decades, an object of wide-spread popular interest, particularly in the West. But from at least the time of the Upanisads till Aurobindo Yoga has been an important source of inspiration to philosophy in India and philosophy in turn has often provided an initial impetus and motivation for the practice of Yoga and has produced various interpretations of Yogic experiences. It is therefore most appropriate that Yoga and Indian philosophy be given equal attention both in the context of academic research and in the framework of popularizing Yoga. 

This book offers a reliable introduction to Indian philosophical thought and to the teachings of Yoga, clarifies the mutual position of the two disciplines-their relatedness, interdependence, differences and antagonisms at various times and in various schools-and discusses the position of Yoga in the modern world. It is based on original research and will be of interest to scholars and students of Indian philosophy and Yoga as well as to readers from wide circles of the public who wish to supplement their interest in Yoga practice with a solid knowledge of its historical and philosophical connections. For this reason care has been taken to make it as readable as the subject permits without letting it suffer from undue simplification.

Testimonials

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
