The great mysteries in our lives are the understanding of our personality, how we relate with other people and the world around us, and our place, if any, in the vast scheme of things. The other question we face is how we can improve our personal experience and our interactions with society, so that we live a happy, harmonious and helpful life. For thousands of years yoga has been addressing these questions and supplying the answers to them.

Practical Yoga Psychology is an attempt to simply blend the teachings of yoga with those of psychology, psychiatry and other branches of western science to give us an overview of the human personality, an idea of where we are going, and guidelines to proceed on our journey.

Dr. Rishi Vivekananda has been a physician for 45 years, and a consultant psychiatrist for 40 years. During most of that time, he has taken a keen interest in ways to integrate the ancient eastern techniques of yoga with the modern knowledge of the mind, the functioning of the body, and healing. He has also studied yoga in its role as a system of evolving the quality of the human personality.

Since his initiation into poorna sannyasa by Swami career as a consultant psychiatrist in private practice in Australia, but between 1977 and 1886 he moved around the world as a sannyasin, especially in India and the Americas. During those years he taught and learn about the synergy between yoga and science, and has become known worldwide as a knowledgeable and informative speaker and workshop director, whose humour and ease of communication make his programs entertaining as well as enlightening. He was initiated into rishi sannyasa by Swami Niranjanananda in 1993, and since March 2002, Rishi Vivekananda has been again on a world lecture tour, currently spending three months of the year in Australia, and the rest of the time teaching in India, Europe and the Americas.
