The Yoga Asanas have acquired an importance which has a two fold characteer.They are not only a set of all-round physical exercises but a preparatory stage for the practice of Yoga.Both the Hatha Yoga and the Raja Yoga prescribe these techniques of Asanas for the purification of the body and the setting of it in tune with the nervous equilibrium that is necessary for engaging oneself in the higher concentration. Yoga Asanas thus form the very foundation of Yoga proper. Well illustrated the book will help the beginner to a great extent.

About the Author:

No saint or sage in the history of the world has such a prolific literary output to his credit,in addition to the building up of a world-wide organization.Even dynamic political leaders have confessed often that the exigencies of administration keep them away from literary pursuits.It is only Swami Sivananda,who has been able to keep a continuous flow of spiritual literature,in spite of being busily engaged in the administration of the Divine Life Society.

The secret,according to him,lies in being able to switch his mind on,at will,from one task to another,without the least difficulty and with great advantage.

Sri Swami Sivananda’s writings are characteristic in being free from the rigid technical nomenclature and the austere logic usually met with in texts dealing with super-mundane matters and in thus being acfessible even to the most non-intellectual type of aspirants.

A medico by profession,Swami Sivananda moved towards spirituality and established the Sivananda Ashram at Rishikesh in the year 1934.

His lucid teachings and writings atracted many and the Ashram became one of the most revered spirituality centres.

Many of his disciples established their Ashrams decvoting themselves to the propogation of the teachings of their master.

One such,Swami Satyananda Saraswati,established the internationally famous Bihar School of Yoga and produced many master peices on the subject like asana Pranayama Mudra Bandha and other titles,best sellers on amazon.com

Book Description The Divine Life Society 0. Softcover. Condition: New. The Yoga Asanas have acquired an importance which has a twofold character. They are not only a set of all-round physical execises but a preparatory stage for the practice of Yoga. Both the Hatha Yoga and the Raja Yoga prescribe these techniques of Asanas for the purification of the body and the setting of it in tune with the nervous equilibrium that is necessary for engaging oneself in the higher concentration. The author, Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj, describes in the present volume the Yoga Asanas in a homely way so that they may be intelligible even to a layman. Highly technical descriptions have been purposely avoided to enable the common man to derive benefit from them easily and to introduce him to a realm above his usual worldly routine. Important postures are illustrated separately for practical guidance in Yoga Asana practice, though it is always advisable to learn the Asanas directly from a teacher. Printed Pages: 196. 14 x 21 cm.
