The compilation of this work was entirely due to the inspiration and Grace of my beloved Sri Gurudev and the Supreme Lord. Indeed Sri Gurudev (visible manifestation of God) and the Lord worked through this humble soul. With deep devotion I dedicate this Text to the Lotus Feet of Sri Gurudev and the Lord for having used this soul as an instrument in their Hands.
May this Text inspire and guide the students of Yoga in their sincere practices for achieving the ultimate purpose of life, Self- realization.
