Yoga Traditions: An Indepth Study of Less Known Yoga Concepts

B.K. Dalai (Author)

Prominent experts on the subject of yoga analyse various yoga concepts as propounded by ancient seers in this volume. Beginning by providing an understanding of the concept of yoga and its meaning, the book examines the method of karma yoga as described in the Bhagavadgita and nada yoga as obtained from the Upanishads. It explains the concept of yama and pranayama. It analyses the concept of dhyana as detailed in the Puranas, as presented by the Jaina tradition and as perceived by the Mahayana tradition. It also provides the meaning of the doctrine of samadhi. It details the understanding and place of yoga in the twentieth century. It throws light on some rare unpublished manuscripts on yoga in the process.
