(Dear Sadhak and Sadhikas, Children, Freiends, Brothers and Sisters)
This book entitled, Door Way to Yog' is before you. It will help you understand clearly everything about 'PAVANMUKTASAN' a category of yog technique.
This technique has been divided into seventeen parts, e.g. exercises for toes, ankles, knees, shoulders, chest, hips etc. Exercises have been given for all these parts of the body, sometimes more than one.
What does Pavan Muktasan mean? We must first of all understand this clearly. Pava means air. When the air inside the body gets polluted it results is many diseases. Mukta means free or freedom. Asan means posture. Pavan-muktasan, therefore, would mean those postures, the practice of which occur on account of the pollution of that air which is inside all parts of the body. It helps to make the body internally clean, free of diseases and healthy.
There are many joints in our body. Legs, neck, shoulders, elbows, writs, fingers, hips, knees, ankles etc. all contain joints. Lack of exercise and an incorrect way of living, wrong food etc. give rise to an accumulation of undesirable elements in the joints. The ari inside gets polluted resulting in stiffness, pain and swelling of the joints. It also gives rise to diseases connected with rheumatism, indigestion and gas.
The practice of Pavan-mukta-asan helps in the elimination of all undesirable elements in the various joints of the body. This helps the body to be free of gas, tension, stiffness of joints etc.
The practice of this Asan is not at all difficult. Even those people, who are averse to exercise or are not allowed to do any, can vary easily practice this asan. It is especially beneficial to people who are fat, weak and old. It is a boon for both men and women. It helps to trim a man's paunch and a woman's ungainly hips by dissolving the fat accumulated there. When the body is free of extra fat then one starts to fees healthy and energetic and looks shapely and proportionate.
People who work in offices and sit on chairs all day long or those, who stand in courts or lecture to classes and those who work on machines do not get the opportunity f bending their knees. As such they find it very difficult to sit cross-legged on the floor because their knee joints become stiff, and painful. They also develop paunches. All this results in indigestion, which makes the body unhealthy. Such people should practice Pavan-mukta-asan.
This category of asans should be practiced after the evacuation of bowels on an empty stomach. During the practice a person should not be in a hurry, it should be practiced with patience.
My experience tells me that pavan-mukta-asan is as effective as it is simple. Ten to fifteen minutes of practice of these asans can make any one free of the stiffness of joints rheumatism and diseases related to the stomach like, constipation, gas, indigestion, dyspepsia etc. It also helps to reduce excess fat. People who are naturally healthy will find that the practice of this Asan will help them to remain energetic, active, proportionate, attractive and free of disease. You will realize its value when you practise it.
