by Paul Brunton. Dr. Mishra brings a medical reasoning and a guru's practice to the ancient science of yoga. Concentration and meditation exercises make this an invaluable introduction to yoga. 14 black-and-white drawings.About the Author:
Rammurti S. Mishra, M.D. (also known as Ramamurti S. Mishra and Shri Brahmananda Sarasvati) had an extensive background in Eastern and Western medicine. In 1955, after years of practicing and teaching medicine and surgery in his native India, he came to the West for further research and advanced medical studies. In the years that followed, he served as a resident physician at leading university hospitals in the United States and Canada.
In 1958, Dr. Mishra founded the Yoga Society of New York, Inc. In 1966 he gave up his medical career to concentrate on his spiritual teaching, founding ashrams and centers of meditation and learning in the United States, Canada and Europe. His two leading centers today are Ananda Ashram in Monroe, New York, opened in 1964 as the country retreat center for the Yoga Society of New York, and Brahmananda Ashram, founded in 1973 at the Yoga Society of San Francisco, Inc. Year-round courses and programs are offered at both locations in all aspects of Yoga, in Sanskrit, East-West dance, music, drama, arts and natural healing.
Dr. Mishra was a widely recognized scholar and authority on the ancient Sanskrit scriptures of Yoga and Vedanta. He is author of Fundamentals of Yoga, Self Analysis and Self Knowledge (based on Shankaracharya's Atma Bodha), modern translations of several Upanishads and other classical Sanskrit scriptures, as well as many essays, stories and unpublished manuscripts. Much of his teaching also exists on audio cassette.
Dr. Mishra's life was dedicated to the integration of ancient and modern, Eastern and Western science, culture and philosophy for transformation, Self-realization and universal peace through spiritual unity. He left his body in September 1993. His spiritual presence continues to pervade his ashrams, and his timeless teachings remain a source of inspiration and guidance for all.
