The impulse toward transcendence is intrinsic to human life. Nowhere has this drive found a more consistent and versatile expression than in India. The civilization of India has spawned an overwhelming variety of spiritual beliefs, practices, and approaches. The goal of Yoga, the most famous and globally widespread of India's spiritual traditions, is to take us beyond ourselves to the Absolute Reality, to the utterly blissful union of the individual self with the transcendental Divine... This book features a lucid explanation of Yoga's roots in Indian culture, outlines its relationship to other important Indian traditions, and discusses the diverse forms it has taken in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. Yoga: The Technology of Ecstasy contains illuminating diagrams and illustrations as well as an invaluable glossary of Sanskrit terms, many original translations of primary sours material, and a comprehensive chronology. This work combines heartfelt eloquence and practical understanding with the kind of intellectual clarity that could be provided only by an author who is both an impeccable scholar and a dedicated practitioner. Speaking always to the contemporary reader, Georg Feuerstein offers a compelling and relevant articulation of Yoga's profound life-transforming value for modern men and women. --- excerpts from book's synopsis [via]
