  • Comprehensive, Informative and Enlightening

    On the surface this may seem to be a dull, boring academic treatment of a subject covered many times. In reality, it is an engaging, engrossing read on a subject more important than most realize. This is a discussion which will not overwhelm the general reader. Quite the contrary, it appears designed for a general readership.

    Samkhya is one of the six dharsanas (schools) in Indian philosophy. It is as old as the Vedas, and, most importantly, the philosophical basis for yoga. Patanjali in his Yoga Sutras borrowed heavily from the teachings of the Samkhya canon, and the author, Deepti Dutta, meticulously explains from where and how the undergirdings of yoga originate from Samkhya writings. Those writings include not only the Samkhya Caraka, but also Ayurvedic writings like the Caraka Samhita, the Upanishads, and also philosophical insights found nestled in the Mahabharata. Dutta also identifies Samkhya writings relatively unknown in English translation. She finds them all, but she always return to the greatest achievement of Samkhya — Yoga.

    In all, this is an informative read which will enrich the reader’s yoga practice and general knowledge.

Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.

I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
