About the Book

India is a home of rich spiritual traditions and philosophies. Yoga and Buddha are the two greatest systems of philosophies given to humanity. The former expounded by Patanjali remained and lasted as pure tradition, while the latter when it was split into several schools. Zen was born from one such school called Madhyamika as it traveled to the far east. Though originated in Indian, the two are diametrically opposed in respect of theology, cosmology, methodology and technique. The concise monograph takes an insightful look into similarities and differences between these two systems which a deep impact on human life. This small but invaluable study is considered as a rich contribution to the field of comparative study of philosophical systems and religions.

Preface

The basis of this monograph is a paper I presented at a national seminar on Yoga sponsored by Indian Council of Philosophical Research (ICPR), New Delhi and held in collaboration with the Department of Philosophy, S.V. University Tirupati in February 22nd-24th, 2007. After presenting the paper, I thought that I should develop the theme into a well researched book form. But, yielding much to my second thoughts, I felt I should be content with taking its shape in a monograph. With my considerable experience in Yoga which I have been practicing in Patanjali’s tradition and with my vast reading of books on Zen, I humbly believe that this fascinating comparative study would best yield results both for the general readers and practioners and academicians as well in the long run and I am confident this small but inestimable study would pave the way for the scholars to plunge deeply into these two unique systems that India has given as divine gifts to humanity.

The author is very much grateful to Mrs. Anjana Bansal of Sharada Publishing House for publishing this book within a short period.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
