Dr. Gidi Ifergan, a scholar of Indian philosophy and Tibetan Buddhism, currently conducts research and teaches at The Monash Centre for Consciousness and Contemplative Studies, Monash University in Melbourne. He is the author of The Man from Samyé: Longchenpa on Praxis, Its Negation and Liberation (2014) and The Psychology of the Yogas (2021).


In the Epilogue, as the yoga practitioner overcome his habitual tendencies, his stillness and clarity develop and fulfil the moral principles of yoga. He then gains special powers while violent behaviour, as put by Vyasa, leaves the offending person in the underworld, battered and bruised, conveying a personal system of reward and punishment. However, fulfilment of moral principles may be realised through understanding embedded in yogic psychological processing while turning at times to Western psychology as complementary temporary means.
