RAMA, Swami

Abstract:Illness and suffering inevitably bring one face to face with the ultimate questions of life. Thus it is no surprise that spirituality is currently the subject of intense study in medicine and allied disciplines. But these studies are floundering for want of a definition of spirituality, for one cannot research what one cannot clearly define. With very few exceptions Western investigators have yet to realize that the perennial wisdom already has a practical science of spirituality, which is known as Yoga. Here I will explore a very pragmatic definition of spirituality—furnished by the late Swami Rama—that can be applied to health and healing as an organizing context or map for the territory.
