The Contemporary Predicament

The Concise Yoga Vasistha
The Concise Yoga Vasistha (June 1985)

It includes most of the things that I like best in the Yoga Vasistha leaves out most of what I like least. It is certainly far and away the best thing available on this text, a text that never should have been neglected as it has been and never would have, had a translation as good as this been available." -- Wendy D. O'Flaherty
