Synopsis:

Yoga is more than a system of exercises for attaining inner peace and well-being: it is a rich Hindu philosophy dating back over 3,000 years. Based on Feuerstein's lifetime of studies and thorough examination of over 200 Sanskrit texts on yoga, this is a collection of dictionary-style ready references designed to furnish lay readers with dependable quick information on a range of religious and New Age spiritual concerns. Featuring a wealth of quotations from the yoga scriptures, "Encyclopedic Dictionary of Yoga" defines hundreds of the common words, expressions and concepts yoga novices are likely to encounter in their reading, plus technical terms that can broaden even advanced students' understanding of yogic ideals and beliefs. A number of essay-length entries also offer readers an invaluable overview of yoga's history, literature, psychology and metaphysical outlook. The author is a founding member of the Indian Academy of Yoga at Benares Hindu University, and other works by him include "The Essence of Yoga", "Yoga: The Technology of Ecstasy", "Enlightened Sexuality; Toward a Body-Positive Spirituality" and "Crazy Wisdom: The Outer Limits of Religon".
