Yoga: the Greater Tradition introduces the reader to the greater universe of Yoga and to the principles that animate this rich tradition. Yoga, according to its Indian origins, is not just a physical practice but an ancient and comprehensive sacred science of right living and higher awareness. This holistic practice encompasses physical health and well-being, psychological and emotional harmony, and general balance in life. More importantly, Yoga is a spiritual quest to know the inner truth of the universe - the Divine, God, the Absolute or whatever other name one may use to refer to this highest value. Providing an overview of this traditional way of life, Yoga: The Greater Tradition is a primer for all thoughtful readers interested in embarking on this spiritual quest.
