Preface

Kaivalyadhama humbly presents the Yoga Concordance VoL I as a mark of attainment of another milestone in its history in the field of yogic research. This is the result of meticulous efforts made by the staff members of Philosophico-Literary Research Department towards the planning and preparation of this Concordance.

As will be evident from the Introduction of this book, originally the work was to be presented comprising all the seventy selected yogic Texts. But in order to make it more user friendly and handy for those who are interested in understanding the concept analytically, we have prepared this Volume only on the basis of five Classical Hathayogic Texts. The subsequent Volumes to be published in due course of the time, comprising rest of the Yogic Texts are expected to throw more and more light on yogic concepts analytically.

Though the work based on all the selected seventy Yogic Texts was ready with the Department nearly six years ago but its publication was delayed due to following reasons-

a: Paucity of fund for its publication.

b. Specific computer software in Devanagari script for the arrangement of data.

The above quoted reasons apparently seem to be different but somehow they are inter-linked. In this connection we are highly thankful to the Ministry of H.R.D., Govt. of India, and its representatives Shri A. K. Singh, the then Director, Department of Education, Shri S. S. Sharma, Director, Finance Division and Mrs. Sharda Ali Khan, Deputy Secretary (Education) who had visited our Institute during the year 1999, by being influenced by the uniqueness and significance of this work, were gracious enough to help financially towards the expenditure of its publication. And accordingly, the Institute received the initial grant of Rupees Two Lacks Fifty Thousand (Rs. 2, 50, 000/-) from H.R.D., Govt. of India.

The Project was also appreciated and supported by the then Director of Central Council of Research in Yoga and Naturopathy, Dr. Naresh Kumar Brahmachariji, who not only acknowledged its significance but also provided a token financial assistance of Rupees Seventy-Five Thousand (Rs.75,OOO/-) towards its publication. This gave us impetus to work more fastly for the sake of its publication.

The responsibility of developing specific Software Program for our purpose was given to Access Consultancy, Pune, who through their experts' Research and Development, were finally successful in developing the program compatible to our requirements with certain limitations which were overcome manually by the staff-members of the Department. We are thankful to Access Consultancy for their efforts.

Shri O. P.Tiwari, Secretary, Kaivalyadhama S.M.Y.M. Samiti, deserves special thanks who always prefers to remain behind the curtain yet working as source of inspiration in every step of the development of not only the Institute as a whole but also the individual projects like this work.

My special thanks are due to Dr. B. R. Sharma (Ph.D.) Asstt. Director of Research whose able guidance to the Research team is successively turning into final form of this work.

Our thanks are also due to Mr. Subodh Tiwari, Administrator, S.A.D.T. Gupta Yogic Health Care Centre for helping the Department in finding competent computer programmer.

All the past and present staff-members of different Departments of Kaivalyadhama are thanked for their direct/indirect contribution towards the preparation and completion of this work.

We thank the Library Staff of the Philosophico-Literary Research Department who were always ready to provide relevant Texts requested during the preparation of the present Concordance.

We are also thankful to Mrs. Nazima K. Saudagar, Computer Operator of this project, for her promptness towards the computer related work of the Concordance.

Last but not the least, our special thanks go to Shri Nitin Tanpure, Prop. ACE Enterprises, Pune, whose painstaking swiftness and efficiency only could enable the publication of this Concordance within the stipulated time.

Finally I would like to draw the attention of the scholars and researchers working in the field to go through this endeavor, first of its own kind and benefit us through their positive suggestions (if any) towards improvement of its presentation and we assure that the same will be taken care of during the publication of its subsequent volumes.

 

Introduction

Research in any field has several ends in view. One of the ends is to provide information arranged in a particular manner so as to serve the requisite purpose of the researcher as per their need. In this direction researchers have identified various methods of collecting information. Bibliography, Index, Dictionaries, Monographs are a few embodiments of this endeavor. It is evident that such a research work, by way of providing a consolidated databank, not only saves the valuable time, energy etc. but also accelerates the pace of the research and extends the width and depth of the work and thereby its understanding. The preparation of Yoga Concordance is not an exception to this. Concordance as per any standard English Dictionary means "arrangement in ABC order of the important words used by an author or in a book". This feature separates the Concordance from the Dictionary as the later is concerned with providing the meaning of the words.

A concordance dictionary prepared by Dr. Bhagwandas (1938, Pub. by Kashi Vidyapitha) pertains to Patanjala Yoga Sutra and Vyasa Bhashya. This work exhaustively presents the concepts, references and also the meaning contained therein. Actually speaking, concordance does not take the responsibility of giving meaning and therefore Dr. Bhagwandas's work is more of a nature of Dictionary than Concordance.

We find another work viz. A Concordance to the Principal Upanishads and Bhagawadgita, Colonel G. A. Jacob (Reprint 1971, Pub. by Motilal Banarasidass). Scholars are well acquainted with this work and it is supposed to be highly helpful in locating the relevant references alongwith their citation with regard to the various concepts scattered in these Scriptures. If we examine the above mentioned work, we will find that it has not simply presented the Concordance in accordance with the Dictionary meaning of the term 'Concordance' but it has an additional feature i.e. it supplies the relevant citations also.

In fact, the phenomenon of growing awareness of the potentialities of Indian traditional science of Yoga during the past few decades, on the part of yoga lovers from various walks of life viz. students, teachers, sadhakas, therapists, psychologists, medical professionals, researchers, Yogic Institutes etc., necessitates the featuring of a concordance in the field of yogic research and the Philosophico-Literary Research Department of Kaivalyadhama S.M.Y.M. Samiti, Lonavla, undertook this prestigious project in the year 1988-89.

Kaivalyadhama, a Pioneer Research Institute in Yoga (Estd. 1924) has its own unique Research Library and we have almost all the yoga Texts in our collection published in India or Abroad. We identified around seventy Yoga and related Texts for this Concordance. (List of all those seventy Texts is appended to this Introduction.)

Study of these Texts also revealed the fact that we can classify them in three groups:

I. Hatha yogic Texts.

II. Yogopanishads

III. Patanjala Yoga Sutra and its Commentaries.

Initially we had a plan to present this concordance in such a way that one particular Yogic Term alongwith its relevant citation from all the seventy Texts could be made available at one place. We had a planning to publish this Concordance dividing it in several Volumes starting with '?' in the Volume I and subsequent words of succeeding alphabets in the following Volumes. Accordingly the Department completed the work of collecting material from all the seventy Texts in the Year 1994. Even though the work was complete and awaiting its publication, it could not be done so because of -

1. Financial constraints and

2. Appropriate Computer Software

These two issues though apparently seem to be different but are inter linked.

The representatives of Govt. of India, Ministry of H.R.D., visited the Institute in January 1999 and after carefully examining the work of Yoga Concordance and appreciating its significance promptly accepted to help financially for its publication. After getting assurance we started finding competent programmer who could serve the purpose of -

a. Data feeding

b. Arrangement of the data in alphabetical order

c. Automatic inclusion (by virtue of programme) of all the references at the respective entry words.

The requirement of the programme was very specific and such programme are not readily available for Sanskrit or Devanagari scripts. However, for the sake of developing specific software compatible for our work, required a good amount of research and development and finally the Access Consultancy, Pune, could develop this programme only in the month of October 2000.

While finalizing the programme and scheme of its publication we made some changes in the form of presentation of Yoga Concordance. We divided the seventy Texts into various groups according to the nature of Yoga prominent in them and planned to publish the same by selecting one group of selected Texts for one volume. Thus every volume will be complete in the sense that it will provide all the entry words arranged alphabetically from '?' to ' ? ' alongwith their citations contained in one group of Texts. This change in the scheme of its presentation is expected to help the user more in comparison to the earlier plan of its presentation. For example, as per the earlier scheme, if the user were to get the information about the word ' ??? ', he would have to wait until the publication of that particular volume containing that particular word. Further, earlier scheme would have also necessitated, on the part of the users, to procure all the volumes of the concordance for getting information about any desired word. We are aware about the limitations of this new scheme. However it is our experience that those who are working in the filed of yoga try to understand the concepts, practices etc. either from Hathayogic point of view or from Patanjalian point of view. We, therefore, planned to present this concordance in different volumes on the basis of groups of Texts.

To begin with, we have selected the five classical/representative Hathayogic Texts [Shukla S. A., Yoga Mimamsa (1966 & 1967) Vol. IX No.1, pp. 1-16 & No.3, pp. 3-8] for this present Volume. Though the total number of Hathayogic Texts identified by us for the sake of Yogic Concordance amount to twenty-eight and the material related to them is also ready with us but it was not possible to include all the material for this volume therefore we restricted ourselves to these five Texts.

Moreover, Hathayoga has attracted the interest of the people for various reasons. It is practice oriented as well as has therapeutic application. Thus, we hope that information from all the five Texts with regard to one concept at one place will really facilitate the yoga researchers, sadhakas, teachers, students and therapists in understanding, practising and applying yoga for various purposes.
