In this collection of essays Shri Yogendra explains that the origin of Yoga dates from time immemorial and lies in man’s universal urge for self –mastery. Throughout history Yoga has remained an inextricable part of Indian culture as an intergral system of elevating man from the ignoble and thence to the highest consciousness.

Nowadays there is a tendency to dismember Yoga and promote bits and pieces of it in isolation as instant remedies without any reference of the traditional whole.

Spelling out the dangers in this trend, Shri Yogendra insists that classical Yoga with its spiritual moorings is eminently relevant even today.
