[Introductory Note to “Yoga Philosophy” and “The Dream of Ravan”]
Theosophist, January, 1880
Introductory Note by H.P.B. on an article titled “Yoga Philosophy,” by “Truth Seeker.”
The following communication, from a European Theosophist, will be read with attention and interest by Hindu students of Yoga.
