Book: The Psychology of the Yogas

Chapter: Epilogue

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.42666


In the Epilogue, as the yoga practitioner overcome his habitual tendencies, his stillness and clarity develop and fulfil the moral principles of yoga. He then gains special powers while violent behaviour, as put by Vyasa, leaves the offending person in the underworld, battered and bruised, conveying a personal system of reward and punishment. However, fulfilment of moral principles may be realised through understanding embedded in yogic psychological processing while turning at times to Western psychology as complementary temporary means.
