Description
About the Book

Yoga or Indian psychology with applied-humanistic approach is as old as the 'code of conduct' (Dharma) in the land. It has been a great and persisting interest as the science of "Man" the measure of all things. Its expression had been the characteristic Indian search of Atma (self-realization) Atma Vidya or Atmanam-Viddhi (know thyself).

Yoga psychology which focuses on humanistic, cognitive, functional, intergrational, multidimensional, consciousness-centered [neither a physicalistic study of l's nor a normative study of 'ought but that of 'Becoming'] and supranormal-directed study.

Yoga psychology is a study of various states of consciousness. In early Upanishadic texts five state of consciousness suggested. These being : (1) Awakended conscious state, (ii) Half conscious state of dreams, (iii) Marginally conscious state of deep sleeps, (iv) State of disturbed conscious mind and (v) Supra-Conscious state.

As Indian Psychology is directely focussed on rapid growth of personality towards a positive end, It is not entering the pedantic discussions of sleep, dream or deviant states.

Preface

The western mind has grown peculiar prejudices towards Yoga-Prejudices that have their origin in some contemporary misconceptions about its nature and function. It has been treated, often, as a system of physical culture, or a school of religious practices. The modem intellectual holds that, neither it possesses a systematic approach, nor a scientific base; which is a grave fallacy.

The Indian approach towards the 'Proper Study of Mankind' has been treated as puritan, idealistic and supra conscious-directed one. The recent scientific progress has completely changed the face of the world and provides tremendous hopes ahead, yet, the assets of centuries of cognitive endeavours of highly evolved brains and 'poised' personalities of Indian soil, must not be labelled as sterile and meaningless; just because it is not following the current methodology, or semantics-moreover, when the scientific world is hesitant to touch any aspect of it, even with a pair of tongs.

In the march of the sciences, the progress of humanistic disciplines is lagging far behind, which has created a critical stage with respect to 'human condition' and social existence. It, rather, reflects the routine-laden myopic range of vision of the social scientist. The author faced various incompatible problems of modern psychology for years, which could be rediscovered in terms of Indian approach without negating the scientific fervour and attitude. This small volume is a collection of some of the papers submitted to various conferences and seminars. I feel highly indebted to some authors whose short quotations I have used occasionally.

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
