Synopsis: The Textbook of Yoga Psychology, written by noted Sanskrit scholar and yogi Ramamurti S. Mishra, M.D., combines his definitive translation with an inspiring interpretation of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras. Patanjali's ancient formulae for self-analysis make this text crucial to the proper understanding of the philosophy, psychology and practice of Yoga. An extensive Introduction provides a lucid and thorough examination of the Sankhya Yoga Philosophy from which the Yoga Sutras emerged.
The accessibility of Dr. Mishra's translation of the Yoga Sutras has made this the favorite among beginning Yoga students, while experienced yogis and novices both appreciate the clarity of his commentaries on each sutra. Dr. Mishra's interpretation is unique in placing this ancient work in a modern context, examining Yoga psychology in the light of recent advances in psychiatry, psychology and parapsychology.
Increasing its value as a reference, this edition features a new Appendix with the entire text of the Yoga Sutras in the original Sanskrit and in a transliterated form, with a revised, literal English translation by the author.
About the Author: Shri Brahmananda Sarasvati, also known as Ramamurti S. Mishra, M.D., 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 (Shri Brahmananda) 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, the arts, natural healing and related subjects.
Shri Brahmananda was a widely recognized scholar and authority on the ancient Sanskrit scriptures of Yoga and Vedanta. He is author of Fundamentals of Yoga, The Textbook of Yoga Psychology (on Patanjali's Yoga Sutras), 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 and video recording.
Shri Brahmananda'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, yet his spiritual presence continues to pervade his ashrams and his timeless teachings remain a source of inspiration and guidance for all. To inquire further, contact the Baba Bhagavandas Publication Trust, the nonprofit entity established by Shri Brahmananda at the end of his life for the preservation and publication of his life work. Trust offices are located at Ananda Ashram, 13 Sapphire Road, Monroe, New York 10950, 845.782.4009, firstname.lastname@example.org.
