Synopsis: From dust jacket notes: "This unique record of an Indian art form that has survived centuries of foreign invasions and tribal warfare introduces the Western reader to yoga art -- mystical configurations that seek to clarify the viewer's perceptions and to unite him with the cosmic forces. Based on complicated systems of colors, numbers, and proportions, these largely abstract and geometric images recall the canvases of Klee and the sculpture of Brancusi, both of whom were familiar with Eastern philosophies. Richly illustrated, the book includes many superb reproductions of meditative drawings, sculpture in stone and wood, pages from scrolls and illuminated manuscripts. mandalas, charts for computing astrological events, and yantras, or power diagrams of the universal forces. All have a purity of conception, deftness of line, and compelling design quality that mirrors the discipline and concentration they are intended to enforce. Ajit Mookerjee, the world's foremost expert on yoga art and the author of Tantra Asana, contributes an authoritative text introducing the reader to the philosophy of yoga and describing the symbolic systems that underlie the art....Philip Rawson, a distinguished scholar of Eastern art and the author of The Art of Tantra (NYGS 1973), contributes a critical essay drawing on parallels between yoga art and Western art similar in appearance or intent; works by Klee, Kandinsky, Mondrian, Rothko, Noland, William Blake, and alchemists, Quabalists, and Christian mystics are examined and illustrated. Together text and art guide the reader to an understanding of the fundamental union between viewer and object -- the essence of yoga art." 76 full color and 58 black and white illustrations.
