Introduction

The human body is nature's one of the most mar- velous creations. It is one of the most perfect machines destined to work efficiently for hundred years as per our sastras. However it is incumbent on us to maintain this machine properly with proper diet, exercise, rest and re- laxation. Sthula Vyayama, Sukshma Vyayama and Yoga comprising of asaria, pranayama, meditation etc. go to strengthen, to regulate and to enhance the efficiency of this Body-Mind Complex. It is our foremost duty to keep this body fit as it is the best instrument to reach the goal of life, as aptly said by Kalidasa.

"Sharirarnadyam Khalu Dharma Sadha nam"
Surya Namaskara is a yoga-based exercise for over- all Personality Development-Body, Mind and Intellect-a gift of Indian heritage to mankind. This being a non-sec- tarian practice, it is universal in application irrespective of caste, creed, religion, gender and nationality. Vivekananda Kendra endeavours to bring this exercise within the reach of people in all walks of life.

Surya Namaskara is a unique exercise, which gives the benefits of Sthula as well as Su kshma Vyayama. Any able-bodied person from 8 years to 80 years can perform this exercise. It is specially beneficial for students for children in their growing age. It enables them to achieve, a) balanced physical growth, b) healthy and efficient body c) balanced state of mind d) enhanced work effi- ciency through concentration, alertness, memory devel- opment and emotional control.

Surya Namaskara tunes up the functioning of vari- ous systems in the body, such as the sensory, respira- tory, digestive, circulatory, and muscular and nervous sys- tems. Mantras chanted while performing the Namaskaras generate minute vibrations in the body correcting the func- tioning of exocrine and endocrine systems of glands.

It is ideal that a set of 12 Namaskars should be practiced at a time, which takes about 15 minutes.

Surya Namaskara practice starts with Prayer to the Surya- the World Nourisher.

Thereafter each Namaskara practice starts with Prayer to the Surya - the World Nourisher. Thereafter each Namaskara is done with offering obeisance . to Surya invoking a name of Surya along with the corre- sponding Bija Mantra. Every Namaskara has a cycle of 12 steps each position giving specific distinct benefit.

In the following pages all the information about Surya Namaskara is given in detail such as:
a) Prayer and its meaning.
b) Meaning and effect of six Bija Mantras and 12 names.
c) Process, Precautions and Benefits for each of the 12 positions.

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.
