Yoga Its basis and applications

  • Item #: 0449
Yoga Its basis and applications Dr H R Nagendra Yoga is a term which has its root Yuj in sanskirt, which means to join. It has multiple meanings, interpretations and connotations depending upon the context of usage. According to the great sage Patanjali, Yoga is a conscious process of gaining control over the mind which is a two fold procedure. First is to gain capacity to focus and concentrate. Secondly, learning effectively the calming down of the mind. By this mastery, man elevates himself consciously from the animal level to a normal man, a superman and ultimately reaches divinity itself. This brings an all round personality development: Physical, mental, intellectual, emotional and spiritual. Yoga is not mere yogasana, pranayama or acrobatics but is a way of life. This concept of Yoga is brought out in this book. To be in tune with the spirit of inquiry of this age of science and technology, many titles have been published on Yoga under the banner of Vivekananda Kendra Yoga Research Foundation. As part of the entire Vivekananda Kendra movement, we have now formed the Swami Vivekananda Yoga Prakashana (SVYP). Trust to print and publish many more titles to disseminate and spread the wisdom of ancients.
