Description

This book on Yoga is a unique book about Yoga intended for Christians. The market is flooded with books on Yoga. But most of them deal with only a part of Yoga, called the asanas. This books deals with the background philosophy - Sankhya which is essential for a comprehensive knowledge of the system of Yoga.


Sankhya is an atheistic philosophy. Yoga was not a part of any religious system to begin with. Later many religions adopted it.
T6he author tries to dispel many of the misconceptions about Yoga and shows how the Indian Christians can be benefited from it.


The book can be viewed as a Christian commentary on Patanjali's Yoga Sutras. It also tries to establish how the Greek Orthodox Christian spiritual movement called Hesychasm is similar to Yoga in many respects. This book will be a valuable help for all those who work towards spirituality that goes beyond the boundaries of any particular religion.
