This volume is intended to dispel the cloud of confusion that has accumulated around the subject of meditation. Those who are looking for secret short-cuts, novel innovations, exciting new trends and fads in the area of self-development may be disappointed. The methods presented here stem from the classic four path of Raja Yoga, Karma Yoga, Jnana Yoga and Bhakti Yoga. These are given in their uncorrupted form, yet with consideration for the Western mind and scientific tradition.
"Written by an experienced spiritual practitioner, the book gives an authentic overview of the subject in accordance with tradition, with an emphasis on the practical aspects … will certainly provide a useful overview of the yoga techniques while giving practical hints to their practice." Prabuddha Bharata, Vol.105, No.8, August 2002 - Swami Satyaswarupananda, Belur Math
