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".
