Yoga: The Indian Tradition

Front Cover
David Carpenter, Ian Whicher
Routledge, Dec 8, 2003 - Health & Fitness - 224 pages
The popular perception of yoga in the West remains for the most part that of a physical fitness program, largely divorced from its historical and spiritual roots. The essays collected here provide a sense of the historical emergence of the classical system presented by Patañjali, a careful examination of the key elements, overall character and contemporary relevance of that system (as found in the Yoga Sutra) and a glimpse of some of the tradition's many important ramifications in later Indian religious history.
