Life's Foundations

Perception and reality

Over the past few hundred years, Western science has freed itself from the restraints of the church and is now free to ask what many consider as the ultimate questions.

Having been involved in the practice of yoga for the past 40 years, this is a list of pages that I have written on yoga, Hinduism and history.

As I have written elsewhere, the practices of yoga lead to a place of unity or oneness with the creative principal, also referred to as enlightenment. This enlightenment or self-realisation is the ultimate reality
