Abstract: Followers of the early-20th-century "New Age" philosophy of New Thought believed they could learn the secrets of mind over matter, and one of their most influential teachers-enormously popular writer and editor William Walker Atkinson, writing pseudonymously here-revealed to them, in this 1906 work, the teachings of Gnani Yoga, "the yoga of wisdom." His lessons cover: . omnipresent life . the creative will . within the mind of the One . cosmic evolution . the ascent of man . spiritual evolution . the law of karma . and much more.

He authored dozens of New Thought books under numerous pseudonyms, some of which are likely still unknown today, including "Yogi Ramacharaka" and "Theron Q. Dumont."
