This edited volume in honour of Dr Pittu Laungani brings together renowned names in the field of psychology, who critique Dr Laungani's contribution from various angles.

Through a critical examination of the life and work of Pittu Laungani, one of the leading psychologists in the West, this book explores the nature of cross-cultural psychology, counselling and psychotherapy. It specifically attempts to build bridges between Indian philosophy and the approaches and methods of Western psychology and counselling. Drawing on the works of Pittu Laungani, the various chapters in the book deal with interesting and challenging questions on culture and stress, traditional healing, Hindu spirituality and religion, caste, class and culture and its relationship with the theory and practice of modern counselling psychology.

Much of Laungani's work has been cutting edge in psychology; developing ideas that transcend the boundaries and limitations of both eastern philosophy and western psychologY. A number of international researchers and scholars have brought together specific aspects of South Asian psychology and Laungani's theories and the current thinking in Western counselling and psychotherapy, interweaving them into new ways of practice in the field of health and mental health. This book includes many original articles of Pittu Laungani and commentaries of scholars and academics working in various fields of psychology, counseling and the health care profession in general.

Personal tributes to Pittu Laungani by the likes of Stephen Palmer, Richard Dezoysa and Nicolo Pipitone add another dimension to this otherwise scholarly book.
