Towards a Spiritual Psychology – Essays in Indian Psychology ed by K Ramakrishna Rao and Sonali Bhatt Marwaha. This volume contains a collection of provocative and challenging papers by eminent psychologists and philosophers from across the world. These essays share a common interest in Indian psychology and explore different dimensions of the concepts ‘self’ and ‘personality’ which are markedly different from those that are currently fashionable and popular in psychology.
Spiritual psychology in the Indian tradition is asserted as atmanam viddhi. The duty is to know the self. Spiritual psychology is the discipline that studies the ways of knowing and realizing the self. It aspires for total transformation of the person to achieve higher levels of awareness and excellence.
