From the Jacket:
Yoga is the process of harmonizing body, mind, and spirit with the ultimate goals of freeing oneness from samsara, the wheel of death and rebirth. Swami Rajarshi Muni is an Indian yogi who writes with the authority of years of intensive study and practice, resulting in direct personal experience of the transcendental truths of yoga.
Over five thousand years ago, Indian sages first wrote of yoga in the Rig-Veda. The system of yoga was developed and passed down primarily through oral teachings from teacher to student in an unbroken tradition for thousands of years, much as it is to this day. These ancient teachings, however, were virtually unknown in the West until the twentieth century.
"Very rarely will you find someone like Rajarshi Muni, who can match a remarkably prodigious, long-term practice of the highest yoga with an equally accomplished scholarship. With this unique blend of time-tested experience, intelligence, and skill, he has produced this masterful work. Rajarshi Muni has done a great service to seekers by synthesizing truths from the greatest yogic scriptures through his personal experiences attained by very rigorous yoga sadhana. This work
will serve as a guiding light for genuine sadhaka."

Scientist, industrialist, and yoga sadhak
"Rajarshi Muni writes and teaches from the depth of his inner wisdom. The beauty of this work is that the teachings in it are not relics of the past; neither are they unattainable. They are timeless universal truths, accessible to anyone willing to practice them."
- Yogi Amrit Desai
"The first original readable summary of classic Indian philosophy since the writings of Heinrich Zimmer and Mircea Eliade. Swami Rajarshi Muni has compiled an essential reference work - a must for every library."
- Dr. John Mumford (Swami Anandakapila Saraswati)
author of Ecstasy Through Tantra
"An exposition which is clear, concise, accessible to most of us, and yet uncompromising in its faithfulness to ancient texts even where they challenge our common assumption
profoundly illuminating about the nature of the human psyche and of the human condition."
- Dr. I.G. Patel
