Preface

Pranayama is one of the most important techniques of Yoga. It has been greatly eulogised in the literature. Just as there is an attraction towards Pranayama, similarly, there is a fear about its practice among the people. Yoga students and teachers are not fully acquainted with the various aspects of this important practice. This book is the result of the seminars given on pranayama in Germany, Brasil and Argentina. In this book an attempt has been made to present theoretical as well as practical information which, it is hoped will be found useful for the readers.

I thank Dr. Parimal Devnath for helping in preparing the press copy of the book.
