Majmudar, Sachindra Kumar

Introduction to yoga: principles and practices - New Hyde Park University Books 1964 - 318 p.

The author communicates to the West the teachings of Yoga in a way never done before. He not only explains the basic philosophical concepts of Yoga but gives its essential practices – spiritual, psychological and physical – in term of modern understanding. The section on Hatha Yoga is a complete book by itself. It is a complete account of the yoga of physical culture and hygiene and its various practices. Forty-one images show the postures demonstrated by the author.
Finally, his rich selection of yoga literature from the earliest period to the present time emphasizes the character of yoga as a living tradition not fixed or enclosed in books and formulas. His selection contains all the important passages of the principal Upanishads and the Gita, translated anew by the author.
