As the light of the morning sun descending from the heavens, turns the snowy summits of the Himalayas into shining gold, and spreads its shimmering attire on the forests and the dreamy valleys, infusing them with abundant vitality, whispering into them the message of life and joy, so, too, this luminous book "APPLIED YOGA" marks its advent in the life of an aspirant.
With the touch of the principles of Applied Yoga, the intellect shines as golden intuition, the sentiments put on the shimmering attire of devotion, the valleys of the unconscious are flooded with the light of wisdom; and the whole life resonates with the whispers of Eternity-beckoning the soul to its ultimate destination, the blessed Nirvana" where the flame of craving is quenched forever.
With this ideal in view, Swami Jyotirmayananda, the illustrious author of Raja Yoga (Study of Mind), Death and reincarnation, Concentration and Meditation and various books of authentic Yoga, focuses his attention to reveal the practicality of the glorious teachings of Yoga in the daily life of every aspirant through this book-"APPLIED YOGA".
"APPLIED YOGA" presents Yoga, not in one-sided aspect, but in its integral wholeness, so that an aspirant may illumine his intellect through Jnana Yoga (the Yoga of Wisdom), integrate his sentiments through Bhakti Yoga (the Yoga of Devotion), render his will as an instrument of the Divine Will through Raja Yoga (the Yoga of Meditation), and transform every action of his life into an uplifting force towards the lofty levels of integration and sublimit.
The author shows that the spiritual movement is not measured by the external display of miracles, mysteries and psychic power, but by the radiant integration of personality through which adversities, are transmuted into purifying austerities, sorrows into the sunshine of spiritual vision; and the toils and turmoils of life blend with the sweet cadence of the eternal music of the soul.
The unseen presence of the glorious Sage, Swami Jyotirmayananda dominates every page of this marvelously elevating book, and brings his divine love into your heart.
This is remarkable and readable book for your spiritual evolution. It provides for you a ceaseless stream of Satasanga (good association). We acknowledge and appreciate the art of work of Roberto Martinze, Gloria Grasmuck, Victoria Frank and Phyllis Simms. The numerous illustrations and charts help the reader to quickly understand the various aspects of Yoga.
It is my profound wish that all who read this book may kindle the fire of aspiration in their heart, and with a resolute will and sustained effort reach that blessed Goal of Nirvana even in this very birth. May the Lord bless you!
