About the Book

Coming in the wake of his earlier books. Yoga-The Art of Integration and The Nameless Experience which dwelt on the philosophy and psychology of Meditation, this work treats the subject from a purely practical standpoint. The theme of Meditation is discussed in terms of the three main constituents, namely, the Brain, the Habit mechanism and the Mind. The revitalization, the modification and the transformation of the triad respectively would usher in the wholeness of spiritual life. In passing, the book discusses the way of spontaneous awakening of Kundalini, the biological energy the human body contains, which no longer, the author avers, requires any Hatha Yoga practice or the guidance of an expert.

It is sincerely hoped that a practical treatment of the subject of meditation will help man to lead a healthy and creative life amidst his baffling psychological life.
