A Handbook of Yoga-Nidra

By Kamakhya Kumar

D.K. Printworld Pvt. Ltd, 2013. First edition. Softcover. New. 16 x 24 cm. The psychological crisis of this age is one of the severest challenges that human race has ever faced. Mental imbalances and their manifestations in the form of psychosomatic diseases pose serious health threat. To address this challenge, Indian yogis have found a wonderful relaxation technique — yoga-nidra. They were fully aware that the inner tensions or imbalances of an individual can be best dealt with inner peace. The yogic texts unequivocally emphasize that peace can only be found within. This volume deals with varied aspects of yoga-nidra and delves deep into its relationship with the stages of sleep, dream and samadhi. It highlights the topic in such a way that among the numerous relaxation therapies, yoga-nidra is the best to induce complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation. It peels off the subliminal sheath of conscious mind that covers the inner core of the unconscious mind. Yoga-nidra is a state between sleep and samadhi, a half-sleep, a half-waking state. It removes fluctuations from all planes of mind. It helps insomniacs by stimulating sleep. This title underlines the regular usage of yoga-nidra in treating pain, neurosis and even disability. It also provides the practical utility of yoga-nidra with lots of evidences on the basis of experimental studies. Their references are well mentioned into it, which will help the scholars in their further studies and research. This book should benefit the patients of insomnia, psychiatrists and all those who want to dwell in the bosom of mental peace, and those who are determined to experience the higher levels of meditation.

Samkhya Yoga Epistemology

By Shiv Kumar

Eastern Book Linkers, 1984. First edition. Hardcover. New. The present work is a comprehensive, comparative and critical study of Sam - khya-Yoga theory of knowledge. The conspicuously scanty discussion of epistemology in the original and the secondary works on Samkhya-Yoga gives an impression that Samkhya-Yoga has very little to contribute to Indian epistemology. The present study brings forth the originality of Samkhya - Yoga Epistemology, evaluates it in the light of its criticism by other systems and reveals the strength and weakness in Samkhya-Yoga explanation as also the points of agreement and controversy between Samkhya - Yoga and other systems. An information of the epistemological differences between Samkhya and Yoga is another feature of the work. Divided into eight chapters the work deals with the problems on nature and genesis of knowledge (ch. I), valid knowledge and its means (ch. 2), number and scope of means of knowledge (ch. 3), various aspects of Perception like nature, process and kinds, psychology involved and perceptual error (ch. 4), facets of Inference like nature, components, kinds and fallacies (ch. S), Verbal testimony (ch. 6), and test of validity of knowledge (ch. 7). The entire discussion is concluded with a resume (ch. 8). The book is documented with an Introduction, Bibliography and Index.

Yoga Asanas

Yoga Asanas

By Swami Sivananda

The Divine Life Society. Softcover. New. 14 x 21 cm. The Yoga Asanas have acquired an importance which has a twofold character. They are not only a set of all-round physical execises but a preparatory stage for the practice of Yoga. Both the Hatha Yoga and the Raja Yoga prescribe these techniques of Asanas for the purification of the body and the setting of it in tune with the nervous equilibrium that is necessary for engaging oneself in the higher concentration. The author, Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj, describes in the present volume the Yoga Asanas in a homely way so that they may be intelligible even to a layman. Highly technical descriptions have been purposely avoided to enable the common man to derive benefit from them easily and to introduce him to a realm above his usual worldly routine. Important postures are illustrated separately for practical guidance in Yoga Asana practice, though it is always advisable to learn the Asanas directly from a teacher. Printed Pages: 196. NA

Yoga Shakti: Awaken Your Own Power

By Shailaja Menon

Niyogi Books Pvt. Ltd., 2018. First edition. Softcover. New. 15 x 23 cm. Most people nowadays think of yoga as a class where you learn to twist your body into different asanas. However, the ancient philosophy of yoga is so much more than a mere physical activity, and needs to be better understood in order to fully benefit from it. In Yoga Shakti, Shailaja Menon not only explores the physical benefits of practising yoga, but the spiritual and mental fulfilment one gains from this practice. Using personal experience as a driving force, Shailaja explains the origins of Manasa yoga in a way even laymen can understand, and recommends daily exercises to help introduce beginners into the world of yoga. The author discusses how negative feelings like anger, depression, and anxiety lead us to lose the power we have in our own lives, and explores how yoga can help us regain this power and achieve self-realization. This book is the genuine expression of an author who has greatly benefited from practising yoga, and wants to share this knowledge with those who seek to do the same. Printed Pages: 180. NA

Spanda-Karikas: The Divine Creative Pulsation; The Karikas and the Spanda-Nirnaya

By Jaideva Singh

Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd., 2014. 5th or later edition. Hardcover. New. The Spandakarikas are a number of verses that serve as a sort of commentary on the Siva-sutras. According to Saivagama, the divine consciousness is not simply cold, inert intellection. It is rather spanda, active, dynamic, throbbing with life, creative pulsation. In Siva-sutras, it is the prakasa aspect of the divine that is emphasized; in Spandakarikas, it is the vimarsa aspect that is emphasized. Together, these two books give us integral view of Saiva philosophy. Ksemaraja has written a commentary on Spandakarikas, titled Spanda-nirnaya. He is fond of sesquipedalian compounds, long and windy sentences, but he is very profound in the comprehension of the subject and so cannot be ignored. The author tried to provide a readable translation of both the karikas and the Spanda-nirnaya commentary. Each karika (verse) is given both in Devanagari and Roman script, followed by its translation in English. This is followed by Ksemaraja`s commentary in Sanskrit. Then follows an English translation of the commentary. After this, copious notes are added on important and technical words. Finally, a running exposition of each karika in author`s own words is given. Printed Pages: 233. NA
