Comprehensive diictionary of terms used in yoga asanas and in yoga philosophy generally, along with some accompanying Hindu and Buddhist words and reference illustrations of asanas, chakra symbols, and yoga physiology. Almost every posture known is here. English terms and posture names are also explained. This is also an encyclopaedic dictionary giving names and dates of key teachers and yoga authorities. Full diacritical marks are shown on the Sanskrit names, for reference. As the preface states, 'This is a dictionary of terms you may come across on your yoga journey is comprehensive enough to help you in your search for inner peace through yoga.... Sanskrit is the only language that does not take its name from the people who spoke it. The very word Sanskrit implies something put together perfectly, refined and cultured, and the written form is called ... 'the writing of the gods'.
