Foundations and Applications of Indian Psychology

Greetings from Pondicherry!
We are happy to let you know that Foundations and Applications of Indian Psychology has finally come out.
This "abridged" edition consists of 24 carefully selected chapters from Foundations of Indian Psychology, plus two new chapters. Each of its chapters covers an important aspect of Indian Psychology, and together, the 26 chapters of Foundations and Applications of Indian Psychology offer probably one of the best introductions to the field.
The first of the new chapters, by Anand Paranjpe, is about the typical Indian neighbourhood guru, and, personally, I think that this chapter alone is worth the price of the book, even if you have the first edition of Foundations already. The second new chapter, by Ashish Pandey and Rajen K. Gupta, is about another major aspect of IP, the effect of spirituality in the workplace. The full Contents of Foundations and Applications, with a short description of each chapter, can be assessed on the IPI website, at
Foundations and Applications is available for Rs. 401/- from Pearson's online bookshop at
Pearson has marked it "For Sale Worldwide", and it can be paid in non-Indian currencies. Delivery within India is free.
Get it now. Enjoy the read!
Warm regards,
