INTRODUCTION

The Yogavãsistha is one of the best Sanskrit works on Monistic Philosophy. It is not only a theoretical exposition of the deepest Philosophy of India which may be called Spiritualistic Idealism but it is also a great work on Practical Yoga or Methods of Deification of Man. Traditionally it is believed to have been composed by Valmiki, the great author who is said to be the first poet of classical Sanskrit and the composer of the well-known Valmikiya Rãmãyana. Whether the tradition is absolutely correct or not there is no doubt that the work Yogavasistha was composed much earlier than the great monistic philosopher of India, Shri Shankaracharya. It is one of the three greatest spiritual works of India, the other two being, the Upanishads and the Bhagavadgita. Traditionally it consists of 32000 stanzas. The current editions of the work, however, contain only 27,687 stanzas. On account of its voluminousness, which is due to, its being a literary work and due to repetition of ideas over and over again, it has always beenfelt by its readers that the book should be summarized. Quite a number of attempts have been made to summarize it. None of them, however, is satisfactory from logical and scientific points of view. The present attempt, Yogavasisthasara, at a summary of the philosophical ideas contained in the book is free fronithe defects of the earlier attempts. It contains in a nutshell all the philosophical ideas of the Yogavasistha topically arranged in a systematic manner, in the language of the original author, the headings alone being ours. It has been translated into English for the Reader by me.

For a fuller understanding of the Philosophy of the work, the reader is advised to read the other books of the writer, The Philosophy of Yogavasistha, Yogavasistha and Its Philosophy, and Yogavasistha And Modern Thought.

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.
