Transpersonal Psychology: Integral · Esoteric · Meditation

Dr. Georg Feuerstein (born 1947) is a well-known German-Canadian Indologist, and a Western authority on Yoga. Feuerstein moved to England to do his postgraduate research at Durham University [1] and subsequently lived for 23 years in the United States. Today, he is a resident of Canada and lives in Saskatchewan. Feuerstein is very prolific, having authored over 30 books on mysticism, Yoga, Tantra, and Hinduism. He has translated, among other traditional texts, the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and the Bhagavad Gita.

Ken Wilber has called him both "probably Gebser's foremost American interpreter"[2] as well as "...a scholar-practitioner of the first magnitude, an extremely important and valuable voice for the perennial philosophy, and arguably the foremost authority on Yoga today."[3] Famed historian of religions Mircea Eliade called Feuerstein's translation of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali "one of the most profound and original contributions to the understanding of classical yoga".
