Description

This contains two dissertations on (1) Understanding Archaic Astronomy and (2) Parmenides and the Tantric Yoga. Of these the first dissertation concerns with the understanding of Archaic Astronomy from the stand-point of a psychologist of perception, trained in Astronomy. The author deals with the psychology of perception and the seven Lotus-flowers of the Kundalini-Yoga-by elucidating the study of Arthur Avalon (John Woodroffe), giving parallels in other traditions, while presenting a comparative study on its bearing on Astronomy according to Ptolemy.

The second dissertation attempts to correlate Tantric Yoga (especially in reference to Kundalini Yoga) with the teaching of the Eleatic Parmenides, one of the earliest founders of Western Philosophy. While giving a description of the cosmological and philosophical doctrines of the Tantric Yoga, the author gives in his study a comparative estimate of both the systems by showing the empirical process of Kundalini Yoga vis-à-vis the doctrinal poem of Parmenides. The study throws new light on Parmenides and his doctrine clearing away the mist of misunderstanding in Western Philosophy.
