Sri Aurobindo, Jung and Vedic Yoga is a product of the author's keen study and contemplation extending over four decades. It embodies his deep philosophical insight, keen psychological acumen and profound Vedic scholarship. It is a study in the structure, nature and content of the human psyche approached from there such diverse angles as yogic sadhana, psychological experimentation and Vedic revelation. Placed as they are so distantly in terms of space as the East and the West and in terms of time as the ancient past and the contemporary present, the three sources, though dealing pre-eminently with one and the same central theme, namely the human psyche are supposed to differ from one another to an appalling extent. With this point of challenge in mind the present author has worked out his way in such a penetrating manner and with such an objectivity that most of such presumptions have got falsified on evidence, leaving thus the way to re-emergence of the human psyched in all its non-spatio-temporal immensity and purity. The study is rewarding inasmuch as it gives an inkling from different angles into the phenomenology of the collective unconscious, the subliminal, and the cave of panis, the archetype and the gods, the self and the Atman, besides the relationship between the conscious and the unconscious. Vedic yoga is a very special feature of the book worked out in contravention of the entire spectrum of misunderstandings created by hasty generalizations regarding Veda, the paramount basis of Indian culture and ethos.
