We are really thankful to Kaivalyadhama : Lonavla for entrusting
us with the project of the translation in Gujarati of the classic book
Asana: written by Shri Kuvalayanandji - the greatest exponent of
Pranayarna. This invaluable book 'Asanas' has become so popular that it
has seen seven editions during last seven decades.
We feel privileged to be associated with Kaivalyadhama :
Lonavla. We have been fortunate to have right direction in the field of
Pranayama and Asanas by this association. We are indebted to Pujya
Shree Maheshanandji, Shri O. P. Tiwariji, Shri Subodh Tiwariji and
Kaivalyadhama : Lonavla as a whole for their incessant support.
We at Project 'Life' have with us a retired professor of Gujarati
Shri N. G. Rajpara in the capacity of an honorary advisor in the field of
publication. He is M. A. with Gujarati and Sanskrit and has taught Gujarati
language and literature at graduate and post-graduate level as well for
thirty three years. He has done a commendable job in translating this
highly technical book in Gujarati.
We are sure that this first edition of Gujarati version of '.Asanas'
will definitely cater to the need of Gujarati knowing people who have keen
interest in Pranayama and Asanas.
Before this Prof. Rajpara has translated the unique book
Pranayama in Gujarati which has been published by Kaivalyadhama :
Lonavla. We are pleased to note that knowledgeable people have
accorded warm welcome to this publication. We hope that this Gujarati
version of 'Asanas' will also earn the same response.
We heartily appreciate the services of our graphic designers
Shri Vipul Parmar, Shri Himanshu Sodha and Shri Ajay Vanvi for decent
data entry and beautifully prepared illustrations of all the Asanas and we
also appreciate the services of our Yoga Instructors Shri Abhishek
Dvivedi, Ms. Yogita Mehta, Shri Ratnakar Padh, Ms. Pratibha Goswami
and Ms. Manisha Patel for rendering different poses for different Asanas.
We heartily thank Shri Navinbhai Shah of Kitabghar Printery :
Rajkot for getting this book printed in time and producing the best result.
