From the Publisher
"Frawley is an Indian in an American body. The ease with which he enters into a spiritual of the Indian tradition and renders its deeper concepts in terms of modern thought shows an unusual familiarity with this ancient wisdom."
- M.P. Pandit, Secretary of Sri Aurobindo Ashram
"Dr. David Frawley is one of the most important scholars of Ayurveda and Vedic Science today. I have great respect and admiration for his knowledge and the way he has expounded the ancient wisdom of the Vedas."
- Deepak Chopra
"Yoga is a truly vast tradition. David Frawley (Vamadeva Shastri) has succeeded in distilling its essentials into a compact, readable book, which will give the reader an excellent basis from which to explore this tradition further."
- Georg Feuerstein, Ph.D., Author of The Yoga Tradition

Frawley (Yoga and Ayurveda; Vedantic Meditation), director of the American Institute of Vedic Studies, offers a very brief, plainly written, and straightforward guide to the principles of yoga. As he reminds us, yoga goes far beyond the controlled body postures the word brings up for most Western readers. It is the outward expression of the principles of nonviolence, truthfulness, and self-control that exemplify the most thoughtful applied Hindu practice today. For most collections.
