KHYA AND YOGA
S
khya and Yoga are among the oldest and most influential systems of classicalIndian thought and religious practice. In their classical forms they constitute twoof the six major systems of Hindu philosophy, and their influence has been pervasive throughout Indian culture. Despite this, much in the core texts of S
khya and Yoga, the
khyak

, remains poorly understood.This book provides a thorough examination of S
khya and Yoga. Placing particular emphasis on the metaphysical schema which underlies both systems,the author adeptly develops a new interpretation of these systems and exposes theweaknesses of standard views. He shows how S
khya–Yoga metaphysics can bemost coherently understood when regarded as an analysis of experience. Drawingupon existing sources and using insights from both Eastern and Western philosophy and religious practice, this comprehensive interpretation is respectfulto the underlying spiritual purpose of the Indian systems, whilst illuminating therelation between the theoretical and practical dimensions of S
khya and Yoga.The book fills a gap in current scholarship and will be of interest to thoseconcerned with Indology, especially Indian philosophies and their similarities and differences with other traditions.
