Yogavaasishta is a treasure house of the ancient Indian philosophical wisdom. It offers logical and practical answers to questions like: What is Mind? What is world? What is the purpose of existence? What is Brahman? It is a poetic classic by the Sage Valmiki explaining the nature of The Supreme Self expounded in his own inimitable and graceful way as a Discourse between Maharshi Vasishta and Lord Sri Rama.
