She declares: Yoga is within your reach within your powers, and even some of the lower practices of Yoga, some of the simpler applications of the laws of the unfolding of consciousness to yourself, will benefit you in this world as well as in all others.

This inspiring little manual provides the basis for a deeper study of the teachings of Patanjali and of Yoga in general containing as it does the essential to be kept in mind throughout the different stages of living and practice.

She was and outstanding orator of her time a champion of human freedom, educationist, philanthropist and author with more than three hundred books and pamphlets to her credit. She also guided thousand of men and women all over the world in their spiritual quest.

In her earlier days in England she did remarkable work as a Freethinker and Fabian socialist, and supported many noble causes including women's rights.

She organized the Home Rule movement and inspired Indians with a dynamic vision of India's future.

Testimonials
Thank you very much. Your sale prices are wonderful.
Michael, USA
Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
