Indian psychology is a distinct psychological tradition rooted in the native Indian ethos. It manifests in the multitude of practices prevailing in the Indian subcontinent for centuries. Unlike the mainstream psychology Indian psychology is not overwhelmingly materialist-reductionist in character. It goes beyond the conventional thirdperson forms of observation to include the study of first-person phenomena such as subjective experience in its various manifestations and associated cognitive phenomena. It does not exclude the investigation of extraordinary states of consciousness and exceptional human abilities. The quintessence of Indian nature is its synthetic stance that results in a magical bridging of dichotomies such as natural and supernatural secular and sacred and transactional and transcendental. The result is a psychology that is practical positive holistic and inclusive. The Handbook of Indian Psychology is an attempt to explore the concepts methods and models of psychology systematically from the above perspective. The Handbook is the result of the collective efforts of more than thirty leading international scholars with interdisciplinary backgrounds. In thirty-one chapters the authors depict the nuances of classical Indian thought discuss their relevance to contemporary concerns and draw out the implications and applications for teaching research and practice of psychology.Printed Pages: 668.
