From the jacket: The book deals with the various aspects of mind-control and lays down methods to be adopted to achieve it. Chapters on Asana, Secrets of Mantra-Jap and how to do it, the necessity of symbols in meditation, Will-Power and how to gain it, Pranayama and Pitfalls and dangers will be found to be particularly illuminating ... Revered Swamiji says: 'Where there is life there is mind. And where there is mind there is the idea of pain and pleasure, life and death, and all the pairs of opposites.'
