About this product
- DescriptionThe ancient sciences of Yoga, Ayurveda and Jyotish (Indian Astrology) have become mainstream subjects and professions in the Western world. Their popularity is growing on a daily basis due to the holistic and individualized approach that each encompasses. There is little doubt that these systems of health and transformation will continue to grow and expand in the modern world. Unfortunately, these systems have been introduced to the West without a clear explanation of the basic philosophy or vision that supports them. The spiritual vision of the universe is called Samkhya and is an existential experience of creation as seen by the Vedic Rishi's, or seers.

Poonjaji in 1991. He has lived in India for more than six years from 1987 to 1994. Atreya is the author of six books published in nine different languages on the art of Indian medicine and healing.
