Yoga is one of the most ancient and strikign products of the Hindu mind and character. It has claims both as a system of practical discipline and a system of philosophical thought.
Though much has been written on the practical side of the yoga very little has come up of it in relation to other systems of Indian thought. The present book fulfils long-felt desideratum. It compares and contrasts some of the central concepts of yoga with similar concepts of other systems of Indian philosophical thought.
The book is divided into eleven chapters. The book is fully documented. It has a preface introduction and general index.
