Yoga means union. Most people understand yoga as the union of the body, mind, and soul, but Vedanta explain that it is the merging of the individual Self with the cosmic Self. Every being has an individual Consciousness. Yoga teaches that there is one supreme Reality, an infinite and eternal consciousness. This spirit or consciousness is our true Self. The merge the individual Consciousness with the Supreme Reality if the goal of yoga.
This book with its study of the four Yogas - especially the Karma-Yoga, Bhatia-Yoga and the Jnana-Yoga - is sure to give good clarity on the theory as well at the practice of the Yogas. This short work is indeed an excellent bird's eye view of the Yogas and its synthesis.
