Summary: This is the English translation of the Laghu-yoga-Vasistha, an ancient Sanskrit treatise authored by the sage Valmiki. Like many of the Puranas, this text contains a fair dose of epic legendry. However, the philosophical aspect is connected with the Advaita-vedanta school of Hindu philosophy.

The Laghu defines “small”, which refers to the fact that this work is a redaction of an even larger work, known as the Yoga-vasistha (also spelled Vasishtha), containing over 29,000 metrical verses in Sanskrit.

Alternative titles include, Laghu-yoga-vāsiṣṭha (Laghuyogavāsiṣṭha, लघुयोगवासिष्ठ) or Laghuyogavasistha or Laghuyogavasishtha.
