About the Book

Yoga or Indian psychology with applied-humanistic approach is as old as the 'code of conduct' (Dharma) in the land. It has been a great and persisting interest as the science of "Man" the measure of all things. Its expression had been the characteristic Indian search of Atma (self-realization) Atma Vidya or Atmanam-Viddhi (know thyself).

Yoga psychology which focuses on humanistic, cognitive, functional, intergrational, multidimensional, consciousness-centered [neither a physicalistic study of l's nor a normative study of 'ought but that of 'Becoming'] and supranormal-directed study.

Yoga psychology is a study of various states of consciousness. In early Upanishadic texts five state of consciousness suggested. These being : (1) Awakended conscious state, (ii) Half conscious state of dreams, (iii) Marginally conscious state of deep sleeps, (iv) State of disturbed conscious mind and (v) Supra-Conscious state.

As Indian Psychology is directely focussed on rapid growth of personality towards a positive end, It is not entering the pedantic discussions of sleep, dream or deviant states.

Preface

The western mind has grown peculiar prejudices towards Yoga-Prejudices that have their origin in some contemporary misconceptions about its nature and function. It has been treated, often, as a system of physical culture, or a school of religious practices. The modem intellectual holds that, neither it possesses a systematic approach, nor a scientific base; which is a grave fallacy.

The Indian approach towards the 'Proper Study of Mankind' has been treated as puritan, idealistic and supra conscious-directed one. The recent scientific progress has completely changed the face of the world and provides tremendous hopes ahead, yet, the assets of centuries of cognitive endeavours of highly evolved brains and 'poised' personalities of Indian soil, must not be labelled as sterile and meaningless; just because it is not following the current methodology, or semantics-moreover, when the scientific world is hesitant to touch any aspect of it, even with a pair of tongs.

In the march of the sciences, the progress of humanistic disciplines is lagging far behind, which has created a critical stage with respect to 'human condition' and social existence. It, rather, reflects the routine-laden myopic range of vision of the social scientist. The author faced various incompatible problems of modern psychology for years, which could be rediscovered in terms of Indian approach without negating the scientific fervour and attitude. This small volume is a collection of some of the papers submitted to various conferences and seminars. I feel highly indebted to some authors whose short quotations I have used occasionally.

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.
