"Concentration and Meditation" form the inner core of the practice of Yoga. It is the key to the door of Inner Illumination and constitutes the central pivot round which all Sadhana in the spiritual field revolves. Dharana and Dhyana are the yoga proper leading to the consummation. The Revered Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj gives in this compact and exhaustive treatise on the great subject a thorough-going exposition of the intricacies of "Concentration and Meditation," in a manner only a Master on the path would be able to do.
Intensely practical, the work is an imperative to seekers and students on the Sadhana-Marga. Literature on this subject being very rare, we have endeavoured to bring out the present edition, though after a considerable period of time. We cannot see any better book on the subject to be placed in the hands of students of this phase of Yoga.
