Indian Philosophy

Containing a treasure trove of previously unavailable material, this account of the life of Dr. Harry Dickman, referred to by Swami Sivananda as "the yogi of the west," features more than fifty years of correspondence between Dickman and well-known yoga masters such as Swami Sivananda, Ramana Maharshi, Paramhansa Yogananda, and almost one hundred others.  The instruction they convey is rich, detailed, and warm, and includes meditation and breathing techniques not widely available until now. Images supplement the text, and McConnell provides additional absorbing stories about Jesus as a yogi, astral beings, and ashram life.
