Quick Overview

Here is an attempt to trace the origin of Yoga back to the Veda millennia before the advent of Patnjali with his Yoga-sutra which ordinarily is mistaken to be the earliest source – book on the discipline. By tracing the origin of so important a discipline as Yoga to that end this work not only presents a corrective of an error of so abysmal order but also brings to the fore the discipline in its pristine purity and abundance which resulted in the elevation of Angriras, Visvamitra, Vasistha, etc., to seerhood. The mystery of the Veda at such an early stage of the human history gets cracked here through the trace of yoga to that antiquity. Besides showing sure indicating to the discipline in the Vedic Samhitas, it discloses the secret yogic practices of some of the most important seers of the Vedic age. If the method of prananusandhana as developed by Angiras has resulted has resulted in the way of access to pure consciousness through control of the vital, that of nadanusandhana as epitomized by the female seer Ambhrni has led to descent of Vedic mantras on the seers with all their exquisite wealth of widom, knowledge and aesthetic values. While the chapter on Yogic Motifs in Indus Seals confirms the literary evidence adduced here by archaeological verity, the Critique of Patanjali brings to the fore the seminal points of departure of him from the royal road of Yoga, raja-yoga, built up by the seers. Thus, if one wants to understand the secret of Spirituality in India along with the infallible way to it, one is sure to find this publication most refreshing and rewarding. As the book is designed to confirm to course contents of Yoga, it will be of great use to graduates, post graduates, diploma, degree and research students of Yoga and the teachers alike.
