Preface:

The superior state of awareness the Yoga practitioner enjoys, provides him a ring side view to life. He looks at various events that pass before his eyes not with tension but with nonchalance, not by getting caught up in stress and strain but rather remaining a witness (Saksi) to the slow unfolding drama of life. Stress management techniques in comparison work on peep-hole view of the reality of life. A little relaxation or recreation and low level attitude training that goes into stress management courses does not even scratch the surface of the matter.

The awareness and attention that such measures develop has been compared to the concentration of a predator when it jumps on its prey. The concentration does not spill over into the whole personality to establish a higher focus (Bhumi) of consciousness and resulting widening of horizon.

In Yoga, Ekagra Citta Bhumi (steady state of one pointedness) is a product of many wholesome traits (Bhuvas) like self direction (Dharma) , concentration and resulting knowledge (Jnana), objectivity (Vairagya) and self efficacy (Aisvarya) . Such a Citta in turn produces deep insight (Nibsreyasabetu) into all problems of life.

The other advantage that classical Yoga can depend on is its psychophysical procedures that are corelated to the mental processes. It is a two way traffic here the body and the limbic system influencing the mind and at the same time perception and conation influencing the body. Managing stress at the very base foundation level and reaching upto a wide overview of life is the Yoga way of managing stress.

Special mention is due as we publish this work, of the Sadhakas and lovers of Yoga who assisted us in bringing out this work. They are Mrs. Gauri Dange, Mr. Basil D'Souza, Mr. Niranjan Gogia, Mrs. Shakuntala Kulkarni, Miss Darshana J. Andharia, Miss Suchitra Pareekh, Mr. Dayal Patkar, Miss Anjali Savur, Prof. Neha Sonpar, Miss Nishi Srivastava, Mr. Dilip Tralshawala and Mrs. Hansa Jayadeva Yogendra.
