Yoga Darshan gives a contemporary yogic vision of the Upanishads as expounded by Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati. Taking a holistic and practical view of spiritual life, this text provides a picture of yoga that is both panoramic and precise. In the theoretical section the different traditions and philosophies of yoga are clearly identified and explained along with clear expositions on hatha, raja, mantra, karma, jnana, laya and esoteric yogas. The practical section highlights classical practices from the Yoga Upanishads and the yogic perspective on physiology and health.

Yoga Darshan is a central textbook for all bihar Yoga Bharati undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
