Foreword

Yoga is a holistic Indian science developed millennia ago. It is one among the six Great Indian Philosophies, the others being Sankhya, Nyaya, Vaisheshika, Purvamimamsa and Uttaramimamsa. Devised originally as a Moksha shastra Yoga later developed into a practical science for maintaining physi-cal health and later into a therapeutic science. The International Day of Yoga is celebrated June 21 every year and now the whole world hails Yoga.

Ayurveda and Yoga are very closely related and in many yogic texts we can see the benefits explained with Ayurvedic terminologies like vata, pitta, kapha, dosha etc. Both are based on Dharma and seek Moksha as the final goal. Yoga purifies the body and mind.

I had the good fortune to go through the book titled The Basic Principles of Yoga, written by Dr. Kulratan Singh, Dr. Pavan Singh and Dr. Roma Anand and felt so happy that they have made the book holistically and classically. Rather than going for gimmicks. they have made an earnest attempt to depict various aspects of Yoga in such a manner that any BAMS student will enjoy learning theories with clarity and interest.

The 14 chapters of this book gives a proper Introduction followed by history of Yoga, Streams of Yoga, Yoga and Ayurveda, Pathyapathyas, Panchakosha theory, Development of Yoga, Asanas, Pranayama, Shatkarma, Dharana Dhyana and Samadhi,Bandhas and Mudras, Shad chakras and Nadis and Description of Yoga in Ayurveda. This will give the student a holistic view of yoga rather than mere asanas or postures.

Great textbooks like Yogasutras of Patanjali, The Bhagavad Gita, Hathayoga Pradipika and Gheranda Samhita are quoted wherever necessary with explanations. Hence it is a good read for the post graduate students as well. With immense pleasure, I forward this book to all seekers of knowledge and hope they will be enlightened by going through the pages.

I also take this opportunity to wish the very best to the authors and hope they continue writing more such valuable publications in future too.

Preface

Yoga is an ancient art based on a harmonizing system of development for the body, mind and spirit. The continued practice of yoga will leads to sense of peace and well being, and also a feeling of being at one with their environment. The original context of yoga was spiritual development practices to train the body and mind to self observe and become aware of their own nature. The purposes of yoga were to cultivate discernment, awareness, self- regulation and higher consciousness in the individual.

I had an opportunity to write this book on yoga with revised syllabus, which will be helpful for different yoga courses as Yoga for Certificate course and Diploma courses, B.Sc.Yoga, M.Sc.Yoga as well as for students of Ayurveda. This book is written with an intention to satisfy the needs of graduate and post-graduate students of Ayurveda and Yoga.

The major aim of this book has been to analyze basic fundamentals of Yoga. Chapters included references from Patanjali's Yoga Sutra, Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Gherand Samhita, Shiv Samhita and other text also. This book contains theoretical knowledge of Yoga and brief description of Astangha Yoga, along with this, the clinical aspects of Yoga about Asana, Pranayama, Samadhi and Shatkarma procedures also. Asanas and Shatkarma processes were described very clearly in this book with original photographs as well as indicated clearly in different types of diseases. This book deals with the subject in all completeness and clarity covering all aspects of the fundamental principles of Yoga.

I am thankful to the authors of all books quoted as references in this book. It is hoped that this book will receive the attention of readers from different fields both basic and applied.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
