Description

From the Jacket:

The ancient discipline of yoga has acquired a special relevance in the present context. The fruitless, endless pursuit of material gain in the quest for happiness has led people all over the world to seek alternative methods of healing that can bring peace of mind.

Although yoga is essentially a deeply spiritual experience, modern-day practitioners tend to promote yoga as a set of techniques that can cure specific disorders and achieve general fitness.

This book explains the origin of yoga and traces the evolution of its meaning from ancient times to the present day. It focuses on certain techniques that can treat physical ailments and create a sense of physical and mental well-being.

Introduction

Overcrowding, stress, pollution and a fast pace of life are some of the major aspects of modern times that adversely affect health and happiness of the people. This is why there has been an increasing quest for a lifestyle that reduces the adverse impact of these realities of modern life. Yoga is one of the main options that has been recommended for reducing these adverse impacts. Several studies worldwide have conclusively proven that regular and correct practice of yoga can promote health and prevent some major diseases.

Preface

This is an easy–to-read reference series put together by a team of medical experts who offer the latest perspectives on body health.

Each book in the series enhances your knowledge on a particular health issue. It makes you an active participant by giving multiple perspectives to choose from – allopathy, acupuncture, Ayurveda, homoeopathy, nature cure and unani.

This book is intended as a home adviser but does not substitute a doctor.

The opinions are those of the contributors, and the publisher holds no responsibility.

I wanted to let you know that the books arrived yesterday in excellent condition. Many, many thanks for the very rapid response. My husband had purchased many years ago a Kâshî Sanskrit Series edition of Nâgesha’s work that lacked the second volume. Delighted to have found the entire work — and in the original edition.
Cheryl, Portland.
I received a sterling silver cuff and ring. Both are more beautiful than I imagined. They came in a beautiful box; I will treasure them. The items here are made by artists.. and the shipping was faster than I expected.
