Preface

These notes are prepared with a view to give concise and at the same time very precise idea regarding the dynamic aspect of the structure and function of the human body, rather than the mere description of its anatomical and physiological features. Selectively only those points are highlighted which would contribute in better understanding of 'HOW' AND 'WHY' the various Yogic practices, affect the human body.

These notes contain also the brief summary of the research work carried out to investigate the effects of various Yogic practices over 50 yrs. at Kaivalyadhama, Lonavla as well as in other centers all over the world.

Although these notes cover a wide area, the presentation in essentially brief and up to the point. We would like to emphasize the fact that these notes cannot replace the lectures and the discussions during which further clarification, elaboration and interrelationship between various concepts could be presented.

We hope the students of Yoga would find these notes very useful for gaining an insight to the whole Yogic discipline.

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.
