Patanjali's Yoga Sutras are mysterious and cryptic and exert hypnotic fascination on all whose minds they touch. In The Yogic View of Consciousness, Don DeGracia unfolds the theory of consciousness enshrined in the obtuse aphorisms of the Yoga Sutras. Yoga describes the mind as a multi-leveled system closed in on itself yet illuminated from within its innermost depth by a divine spark that gives life and consciousness to every individual. Drawing on ideas Eastern and Western, ancient and modern, from Abhinavagupta to Leibniz, Mahaprabhu to George Berkeley, IK Taimni to Hermann Weyl, DeGracia weaves an intellectual tapestry harmonizing science, philosophy, religion, mathematics, and the mystical. Compared to the grandeur of The Yogic View of Consciousness the hostilities of secular science and philosophy appear as little more than the psycho-babble of lunatics and an affront to the sublime majesty of existence. Take the wild ride to the very source of being revealed by The Yogic View of Consciousness.
