This excellent collection of essays by a well-known, highly respected Western scholar of Eastern spirituality provides a broad overview of the Indian philosophical schools of Vedanta and Yoga. The meaning of each of these and their historical context is followed by chapters on several different types of Yoga. Several sections are devoted to the "eightfold path" of Patanjali, a teacher whose influence continues to be felt. Other chapters deal with specific yogic methods and practices including the much-misunderstood Tantra and the better-known Hatha. Five essays at the end relate these practices and philosophies to modern life. While each essay stands on its own, read together they provide a useful, readable introduction to Hindu spirituality for both novices and advanced students. Highly recommended for all collections of spiritual literature.
