PUBLISHER'S NO 1
It is with great pleasure that we present to our readers the
Indian Edition of 'How to know God' by Swami Prabhavananda.
This English translation of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras was
originally published by the Vedanta Society, Southern California
for the benefit of Western readers who do not know Sanskrit
and yet are interested in Indian psychology which plumbs thedepths of the human mind. Swami Prabhavananda who has to
his credit such lucid expositions as `Srimad Bhagavad Gita,the wisdom of God', `Narada's way of Divine Love' and the
'Sermon on the Mount according to Vedanta' has taken special
pains in this book to present the philosophy and practice of
Yoga in a non-technical, up-to-date phraseology that can be
understood and enjoyed by all enquiring minds. For the benefit
of our Indian readers we have added also the text of Patanjali's
Sutras in Devanagari.
We are sure that they will find the book eminently helpful in
their spiiitual practice. We are thankful to Swami Prabhava-
nandaji and the Vedanta Society, Southern California for
kind permission to bring out this Indian edition.
