About the Book

`Yoga has been integral to my life for over twenty-five years,' says Susheela Hegde. Intrigued by the mystery of the unseen, she began the inner exploration at a young age. Susheela has been trained on several world renowned spiritual methods that focus on different aspects of yoga.

After discovering the comprehensive nature of Ashtanga Yoga, and having immensely benefitted from this amazing system of human well being, she has decided to do her bit in spreading awareness about the same. `Writing on the subject is one of the ways to do so, along with conducting regular classes in yoga,' she maintains.

Introduction

In today's competitive world everyone wants to cup as much water as possible from the river called life. In order to do that we need to learn and deploy many means and enact many roles, which keep our attention outbound for the most part of our life. In the process, we remain ignorant of our true nature, our inner powers and their various possibilities even in terms of worldly matters.

In order to understand what we really are, we need to turn our gaze inward. But a mere resolution to do so will not help as the mind does not like to forgo its accustomed nature of springing away from ourselves. Hence, we need some assistance. Ashtanga Yoga is a method which is precisely developed to provide such assistance. It is a system based on a subtle but comprehensive inner science. It provides a step by step guide that helps us reach the innermost layer of ourselves and find our inner powers, if practised systematically.

When the United Nations declared June 21 as International Day of Yoga in December 2014, the heart of every Indian must have swelled with pride.

After all, yoga is India's gift to the world. Although it was practised in several countries in the past couple of centuries, its popularity has grown manifold ever since the UN's declaration.

Now in India, we witness record breaking mass events organized in the capital city of Delhi, as well as other big and small cities and towns across the country. It may give an impression that now yoga has become an integral part of life for a vast majority of people, if not for all, in its country of origin. However, the truth is entirely different - still only a miniscule percentage of people are into yoga.

The word 'yoga' has certain solemnity to it. Unlike in the West, Indians always considered yoga as a spiritual practice rather than physical one, though this approach is changing now generally, when someone is called a yogi, it is implied that the person is not leading a 'normal' life. Hence, the majority of earlier generations might have kept serious yoga practice out of their life, thinking the system is only for those who are not active in the worldly matters. This could be the reason behind the fact that yoga could not engender a popular culture based on it in the country of its birth.

The recent history may have witnessed the rise of many yogis, such as Paramahamsa Yogananda, Maharshi Mahesh Yogi, M Shivananda, Sri Aurobindo, and others who could attract huge followings. But these followers seemed to be limited to sections of elite in the society.

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.
