Practical Yoga Psychology

Dr Rishi Vivekananda

psychologyThe great mysteries in our lives are the understanding of our personality, how we relate with other people and the world around us, and our place, if any, in the vast scheme of things. The other question we face is how we can improve our personal experience and our interactions with society, so that we live a happy, harmonious and helpful life. For thousands of years yoga has been addressing these questions and supplying the answers to them.

Practical Yoga Psychology is an attempt to simply blend the teachings of yoga with those of psychology, psychiatry and other branches of Western science to give us an overview of the human personality, an idea of where we are going, and guidelines to proceed on our journey.
