WHY YOGA: A Yogic thesis to a life well-lived
WHY YOGA: A Yogic thesis to a life well-lived
Description
From the Back of the Book:

Beginning with Bane of Permissive Society where exceptions become the rule and the rules remain as mere exceptions, Shri Yogendra speaks of the modern sick society and ignorance about oneself and one's motives. The sense of duty is lacking he feels because of a partial understanding of man. We depend for our knowledge on limited perceptions.

Unfortunately the practitioner of yoga is like the modern materialist given to show to competition and to acquisition of material wealth.

As against this Shri Yogendra puts forward the Yogic thesis of self discipline, concentration and selflessness.

About the Author:

Shri Yogendra was a master of practical Yoga. He had studied practical Yoga techniques from the great master Paramahamsa Madhavdasji who lived from 1798 to 1921. Shri Yogendraji, as a free thinker and an intellectual par excellence was influenced by the well known Prof. Surendranath Das Gupta – the author of "History of Indian Philosophy" in several volumes.

But more than all this Shri Yogendra was a very perceptive individual. He was trying to find the rightful place of Yoga in modern times.

The titles of his books like "Life Problems", "Why Yoga" are very suggestive. He wanted others to join him in his search for the utility of many yogic perceptions and practices.

These insights and enquiries of Shri Yogendraji on Yoga are available in books like "Why Yoga".

Testimonials
Thanks again Exotic India! Always perfect! Great books, India's wisdom golden peak of knowledge!!!
Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
