About the Book

The present work is the product of author's profound studies in India's yogic system. The author has worked out this abstruse subject in a peculiarly comprehensible way. The comparison of the Eastern system of Yoga with the system of analytical psychology as developed in the West is bound to make the subject popular and attractive and all the same enlightening and useful. Both the theoretical analysis and the practical wisdom go hand in hand. the reader can get a clear idea of the system through the medium of this book.

'. .an admirably lucid exposition of a difficult subject and of a very difficult writer. .'

The Times Literary Supplement
