ABSTRACT
The article discusses the mind-body problem with materialism and dualism based in the classical Yoga philosophy of India. Topics addressed include the manner in which physical states vary from mental states, the manner in which physical states relate with mental states, and the manner in which physical states equate with mental states. The reason behind the author's decision to select the philosophy of mind as an interpretative framework for discussing yoga is given.
