Religious therapeutics explores the relationship between psychophysical health and spiritual and health presents a model for interpreting connections between religion and medicine in world traditions. This model emerges from the work’s investigation of health and religiousness in classical yoga, Ayurveda, and Tantra-Three Hindu traditions note worthy for the central role they accord the body. Author gregory P. Fields compares Anglo-European and Indian philosophies of body and health and uses fifteen determinants of health excavated from texts of ancient hindu medicine to show that health concerns the person, not the body or body/mind alone.


“Fields expounds the above systems with great sympathy care and skill & also puts them in a comparative perspective will come in very handy.” – Journal of Religious Studies, Vol:34, No. 1 & 2, 2003
