Description

About the Author

The author of this book Shri Rameshwar Das Gupta was born in Narela on the 16th of April 1923. He came into close contact of Acharya Bhagwan Dev (Now known as Omanand Saraswatiji Maharaj) at the tender age of eleven. He started to practice Yog under his guidance and was also interested in the welfare of society.

In the beginning Shri Gupta did some asans like 'Padm Asan', 'Baddha-Padm Asan', 'Chakr Asan', 'Shirsh Asan', 'Tad Asan', etc. and later on practiced meditation.

One day while meditating he felt although he was being lifted up into the air where he experience a great bliss in roaming around beautiful gardens.

In 1936-37 he started business. For 40 years he was continuously in business and discharging his family obligations. But throughout he maintained strict discipline regarding his life-style and food-habits along with that he kept up his practice of 'Yogasans',

After 1973 the responsibility of business lessened which gave him more time for the practice of Yog. He now started to spend three to four hours everyday for 'Yog-Sadhana'.

In 1980 he wrote 'Yog Rashmi' and then as he went on perfecting the practice of Yog he wrote five more books namely 'Yog Chetna', 'Yog Pravesh', 'Dainik Yog' and Motapa Aur Budhapa. On demand of many readers all these books were published in English also 'Yog Rashmi' was translated into Marathi and Urdu as well.

This undertaking was taken up by the author for the physical and mental well-being of humanity. Just as the elements of sunlight air and water do not differentiate between human beings so do these books which are meant for every irrespective of caste, creed or religion, age or sex.

The writer wishes that the books should help everyone.

Prayer

Sit in any Asan and keep your waist, spinal column and neck in a straight line. Relax your body and fold your hands.

Oh God! It is You Who in the form of Brahma has created all creatures. Oh Lord of the Universe! It is only You Who in the form of Vishnu, provide sustenance to all. Oh Lord! It is only You Who in the form of Maheshwar brings about the fusion all souls. (With bowed head) I acknowledge your presence and your ominipotence.

Oh God! You have offered me this conscious, bright, healthy, active, beautiful and wonderful human body devoid of disease and defects. (With bowed head) I thank You again and again.

Oh God! You have offered me this conscious, bright, healthy, active, beautiful and wonderful human body devoid of disease and defects. (With bowed head) I thank You again and again.

Oh God! You have given me air, water, food, clothing and shelter. (With bowed head) I thank you over and over again.

God! You have given me a brain to think and to judge, two eyes to see, two ears to hear and a nose to breathe and smell. Oh Almightly! You have given me a mouth to eat and drink, a tongue and lips to taste and speak. Oh knowledge Supreme! You have given me a heart full of love and devotion. You have given me a heart full of love and devotion. You have given me two hands to work with. You have given me the organs for of bladder and anus to cleanse my body. Two legs to move around.

Oh God! I am immensely grateful to you for so many invaluable gifts. (With bowed head) I thank You millions of times. I sing your praises. I bow and touch your divine feet. Oh Lord! Give me your blessings so that I may be good.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
