Yoga and The Teaching of Krishna: Essays on the Indian Spiritual Traditions
Yoga and The Teaching of Krishna: Essays on the Indian Spiritual Traditions
Description
About the Book:

This is a compilation of some of the essays which Ravi Ravindra, a scientist-philosopher has written over more than a quarter of a century. These essays have been published in a variety of journals and magazines some of which are not now easily accessible. Brief excerpts from some of his books. Whispers from the Other Shore, Science and Spirit, the Yoga of the Christ and Krishnamurti: two birds on One Tree, are also included in the collection.

Each of the selections here is influenced by yoga and the teaching of Krishna; all of them speak of and are related to the wisdom of the spiritual traditions of India. They range from an exploration of Rita in the Rig Veda and its relation to Yajna and dharma in the subsequent tradition on contemporary spiritual masters such as J. Krishnamurti. Some of the essays deal exclusively with the great texts of India, such as the Yoga Sutra and the Bhagavada Gita, while some deal with the parallels which can be found with texts from other traditions, such as The Enneads of Plotinus and the Gospel according to Saint John.

Others essays discuss the interaction of modern science and the spiritual traditions if India and their impact on the life of humanity. Ravindra is at home in the East and in the west; he understand hymns in Vedic Sanskrit and nuances of relativistic cosmology, and he brings insights from both sources. He shares his passionate inquiry about the meaning and purpose of human life and of the cosmos that we might discover if we could hear more subtly and see more deeply. In this he exhibits a remarkable impartiality which searches for and delights in truths and wisdom wherever they can be found, without an argument for or an exclusive interest in any sect, religion or tradition.

Testimonials
Thank you very much. Your sale prices are wonderful.
Michael, USA
Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
