The central theme of discussion in this monograph revolves round the problem of man’s self-transformation in the midst of an artificial and soulless civilization. According to the author, the solution to the problem lies in a synthesis between ‘the two principal tradition of India’-Yoga and Tantra which he defines as philosophy and practice. In his view, only on a successful synthesis between the two depends the full flowering of the individual, and only ‘a transformed individual…can become a nucleus for fundamental social change’.
