From the reviews:

'The blurb on the dust jacket for Spirituality and Indian Psychology: Lessons From the Bhagavad-Gita succeeds admirably, noting that `globalization, multiculturalism, and Western interest in Eastern thought' have led to increased interest in cross-cultural psychology. ' has potential value for psychologists and other helping professionals. Those interested in the spirituality/psychology interface will find that this book grounds its spiritual references in the Bhagavad-Gita, helping Western readers understand how profoundly Indian thought has been influenced by this and other classics of Indian spiritual literature.' (Dennis Davidson, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 56 (36), September, 2011)
