Yoga: The Science of the Soul

Book Review   by:Indranil     Original Author: Osho
ª
 
Yoga, the word to a majority of mankind means physical postures and a number of exercises meant to increase the body flexibility and relaxation of the mind.
This is but a small part of Yoga. 
Yoga in a much bigger perspective is a science that has its roots in the centuries old years of rigorous investigations and research done in the eastern part of the world to develop an understanding of the much unexplored human consciousness and its immense potential.
This book explains the different forms of Yoga and their meaning called Yoga Sutras of Patanjali who is considered the scientist of the soul and is credited with being the father of Raja Yoga also called the royal path of yoga that involves  physical postures and breathing techniques that  is aimed at making the soul achieve higher state of consciousness.
This book is a fresh translation of the ancient texts keeping in mind the modern mindset and its psychology.  It enlightens us on using yoga to have an indepth self understanding that has become a must in today's stressful and polluted world.
This book explores the intricate relationship between the mind, the soul and the body.  It shows the usage of postures and controlled breathing techniques to achieve a higher state of consciousness.
