Yoga: The Greater Tradition by David Frawley
As yoga continues to grow in popularity as a modern exercise and fitness movement, it is important to take notice of the greater spiritual tradition that forms its core. This book sheds light on the greater tradition and teachings of yoga, providing readers with an important approach to the practice.
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.
