YOGA: Meaning, Values and Practice
Description
From the Jacket:

This book is the result of years of practice, study and teaching of yoga by the author. It presents yoga as a science and explains its fundamentals in a scientific perspective. All the major yogas have been discussed in terms of their meaning, significance and value with emphasis on Hatha, Raja, Karma and Jnana yogas. Such important and useful subjects as Concentration, Nervousness, Relaxation and Yoga Thoughts are comprehensively dealt with in order to enable the practitioners overcome such problems as tension, lack of concentration, disturbances in relaxation and lack of mental harmony. The different factors causing these disturbances are pointed out and their remedies are provided. The book presents selected Asanas and Pranayama and describes the method, limitations and values of each asana distinctly with full illustrations.

This book will be of assured use to all: yoga practitioners and non-practitioners alike. For the practitioners of it would be more helpful and rewarding as it is written with such a clarity that any person can easily understand and follow it. With the help of this book, one can practice yoga asanas without difficulty and without assistance of a yoga teacher. The non-practitioners will be benefited by acquiring knowledge of yogic thoughts and ideas which all relate to the well being of individuals. Only a reading of it can reveal its value.

Fotis, Greece

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
