Yoga as a Universal Science by Swami Krishnananda




The present volume is the outcome of a series of extempore lectures given by the Swami Krishnanda to the Fourth Batch of trainees under the three months' Yoga Course run by the Yoga-Vedanta Forest Academy of the Divine Life Society. The verbatim transcription of Swamiji's taped lectures has been subjected to minimum, essential editing so as to leave the free flow of Swamiji's discourses unimpaired. It is hoped that the present volume will be received by the world of spiritual seekers.
