Exchange of ideas between different traditions is becoming the norm in twenty-first century research and studies. This book rejects discussions in psychology based only on American or European thought by presenting fascinating insights on the study of human nature offered by traditional Indian thought.

Foundations in Indian Psychology: Theories and Concepts does not limit itself to merely tracing the history of Indian thought. It demonstrates how ideas and practices from the Indian tradition can be used to tackle issues in contemporary psychology. The first book in a two-part series this volume focuses on influence of Vedic, Sufi, Buddhist and Yogic thought on modern psychology.
