TARKA is a quarterly journal that explores yoga philosophy, contemplative studies, and the world’s wisdom and esoteric traditions. The journal’s guiding mission is to dissolve the institutionalized boundaries between scholarly, devotional, and embodied methods, in an effort to forge a new paradigm of cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural research and practice.
