Jainism and Buddhism by J.G.R. Forlong

Yoga is not a culturally homogenous, all-Hindu, Vedic tradition, as is often portrayed by revivalist demagogues and those who have set up a raucous campaign to reclaim its roots. It is, in fact, a liberal, eclectic tradition that absorbed freely from Buddhist, Jain, and even Sufi ascetic practices. Roots of Yoga , a new academic work by renowned yoga scholars Mark Singleton and James Mallinson, is an intensive study of over core texts on the subject. The book, five years in the making and launched last week by Abhyas Trust in Delhi, punctures some of the popular myths around yoga. To begin with, there is no evidence that yoga started as a religious tradition. He and Mallinson are also part of an ambitious ongoing five-year research project at SOAS, a university in London, on the evolution of one of the branches of yoga—the hatha yoga.
