Rich in new perceptions, this book strikes quite a few sparks full of stimulating suggestions.
Modern psychologists have shown an occasional interest in ancient Indian psychology. It is generally believed that psychology is an exclusively western contribution to human understanding. But this is a myth. The ancient Indians have given a very high priority to psychological enlightenment.
The Indian masters have divided psychology into two parts - - the psychical and the pre-psychical. They discovered that the discipline of the pre-psychical is fundamental to the growth of a disease-free psyche.
This book gives the response of an informed and sensitive mind to the problem... To the exclusively extrovert modern man, there can be no better message. - - THE MAIL
This summary of author's argument indicates the originality of his thinking. He has the courage to think for himself. He understands its inward meaning and applies it to modern problems. - - DECCAN HERALD
