Foreword

It is extremely essential to be completely healthy to attain the four goals of human endeavour, viz., and observance of religious duties. Earning money, begetting progeny with a pure and noble intention, and attaining liberation. There is hardly any hope of happiness, peace and bliss when the body is disease-ridden. No matter one possesses every thing—name, fame, wealth, opulence, affluence, near and dear ones, his body is no more than a corpse if there is no proper blood circulation in it, the limbs are not strong and supple, and the sinews have no strength and energy. Ayurveda has emerged to make mankind achieve healthy body and healthy mind, and it continues to render this great service. With a view to removing the internal impurities and disorders of the body and attaining complete bliss through samãdhi by purifying the inner conscience, sages, savants and accomplished yogis have invented yogic procedures. Prãnãyãma occupies the pride of place among yogic procedures. The sage Patafljali has propounded aãñga (eight- limbed) yoga for the benefit of mankind. It comprises abstinences (yama), observances (niyama) and yoic postures (ãsana) as external (bahiranga) yoga which helps purge and purify the body and the mind.

Concentration (dhäranã), meditation (dhyãna) and transcendental trance (samãdhi) fall under internal (antaranga) yoga which are the means to the attainment of self-elevation and bliss of liberated existence (kaIvalya). Prãnäyama serves as a bridge between external and internal yoga. If one has to make the body healthy and disease- free, or one has to purge the body and purify the soul, it is possible only by doing priinayama. It is only by restraining impulses (vttis) and by getting established in the self that a seeker (sãdhaka) can attain liberated existence.

In the holy presence of the Revered Yogari SwamiRamdevji Maharaj, the Founder Chairman of Divya Yog Mandir Trust, We hope that this latest edition of the book, backed by a lot of scientific evidence, will be of immense interest to our discerning readers.

Kankhal. and Patanjali Yogpeeth, Hardwar, lacs of learners every year receive practical training of the specific procedures of yoga, like prnayäma, meditation etc., and get rid of ailments of the body and disorders of the mind.
