Description

Preface

These notes are prepared with a view to give concise and at the same time very precise idea regarding the dynamic aspect of the structure and function of the human body, rather than the mere description of its anatomical and physiological features. Selectively only those points are highlighted which would contribute in better understanding of 'HOW' AND 'WHY' the various Yogic practices, affect the human body.

These notes contain also the brief summary of the research work carried out to investigate the effects of various Yogic practices over 50 yrs. at Kaivalyadhama, Lonavla as well as in other centers all over the world.

Although these notes cover a wide area, the presentation in essentially brief and up to the point. We would like to emphasize the fact that these notes cannot replace the lectures and the discussions during which further clarification, elaboration and interrelationship between various concepts could be presented.

We hope the students of Yoga would find these notes very useful for gaining an insight to the whole Yogic discipline.

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.
