Description

The book has been divided into three parts. Part I deals in a general way with the theoretical basis of the Science of Self-Culture which has as its ultimate aim the discovery of the Reality hidden within the heart of every human being. Without at least a general knowledge of he relation of man to God in Whom he is rooted and to the universe in which he evolves, he cannot tackle the various problems of Self-Culture intelligently and systematically.

Part II deals with the problems of self-discipline and Self-Culture which are involved in making the vehicles of the aspirant efficient instruments for the expression of the divine Life and consciousness on the different planes.

Part III deals with the problems of Self-discovery and Self-Realization and the techniques which are involved in them. It does not seek to give a detailed knowledge of these techniques which has to be acquired from technical treatises or other sources. Its purpose is merely to give the aspirant a general idea of these problems and to prepare his mind for the more intensive study and practice of these techniques.

Chapters in Parts I and II are mostly a reproduction of those which appeared in the first edition of the book. Part III contains new chapters which have been added to make the book more comprehensive in scope and to serve as a sort of introduction to The Science of Yoga. Some of the Chapters in part III have appeared in The Theosophist in the form of articles.
