The world is in a state of constant upheaval and the pressures of our daily life cause us constant stress and strain. We find it difficult to control our thoughts, to still our minds, and to achieve an inner calm. This book, which has run into many editions, is a popular and practical guide explaining in a lucid manner the method of practicing the art of concentration and mind control. This is, however, only the first step leading to the deeper experience of meditation, the awareness of one's own center of quietude. The practice is actually a simple approach to the ancient science of yoga and one that is very helpful for the Western mind.
The author, Professor Ernest Wood, was born in England and educated in the field of science. As a young man he went to India where he spent many years as an educationist, serving as principal of various schools, colleges and universities, and also as a worker for the world-wide Theosophical Society. Professor Wood became deeply interested in the Yoga and Vedanta philos- ophies of India and has written many books on these subjects, as well as on education and psychology. After leaving India he was for some time President and Dean of the American Academy of Asian Studies, a graduate school in San Francisco.
