About the Author

Krishan Kumar Suman got yogic secrets in hi8s student life. He has been a State Awardee lecturer in Directorate of Education, Delhi. General books on yogic asanas and breathing Pranayama practices are many, but few on the subject of how to cure one's diseases with the help of yoga exercises. Here is a rare book by one who is an expert yoga practitioner, teacher and writer, with a half century of experience. He has been in contact with masters like Mother of Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Anandamayi Maan, Acharya Abhay Dev of Gurukul Kangri, Sri Ram Acharya of Haridwar, Swami Bhaskaranand, Sri C. B. Darjeeling, etc. he has been well versed in the various streams of yoga and benefited by them. He has edited the well-known magazine Yoga Manjari and been advisor to various yoga institutions of repute. Also he has got many awards like 'Yogacharya', and 'Ayurveda Ratan' by his works.

Dr. V. K. Ahluwalia has worked as Professor of Chemistry for more than 25 years at the Department of Chemistry, University of Delhi and has published large number of research papers. He specializes in investigations of natural products and their synthesis. At present he is visiting Professor at the B. R. Ambedkar Centre for Biomedical Research, University of Delhi.

Now-a-days informative books on Yoga Therapy are not easily available in the market.

This book is written on the demand of people who have keen interest in yoga. Basic principles and Yogic techniques are described in detail and every asana is explained with illustrations.

Definition of disease, causes of disease, yogic methods of treatment of the diseases are enlisted. Symptoms of a healthy person are given in the second chapter.

Yoga hygiene is necessary for curing and it plays an important role in yogic Kriyas and yoga therapy. Without purification diseases cannot be removed. Neti, Dhauti, Basti, Nauli, Kunjal, Kapalbhati, Shankh Prakshalan, ushapaan, and Ganesh Kriya are clearly explained.

Diet is the basic element to be healthy. Diet chart is given for common diseases. General rule for food are also explained Juices for diseases and fasting are explained.

Yama-Niyama, curative values of Yogasanas for 67 diseases, methods of Pranayama, Bandhas, Meditation and massage are given in brief. Swara Yoga, Yogic relaxation, deep relaxation techniques as yoganidra, which is a wonderful technique for rest, blood pressure sleeplessness and curing the chronic diseases. Body, mind and spiritual relaxation is necessary for a sadhaka.

Pragya Yoga is the Gayatri mantra and yogasana technique. 16 poses are included in each word of mantra. It is a new technique, which is very simple and useful. 30 mudras and some mantras are helpful to remove the diseases. I have included those mantras in the book 'Visualisation of positive affirmation' is for 15 diseases with the help of will power. It is self hypnotism technique. Our subconscious mind is effected by these words which are full of faith and will power.

Hasya Yoga now a days is being used in big hospitals and open parks to remove the tension. We have forgotten smiling and laughing. This practice will help to remove physical and mental tensions.

40 diseases, causes, symptoms and remedy are explained. Common diseases are selected for this book.

The language of this book is simple so that everyone can understand. More than 115 illustrations will help in understanding the subject. I think this book will prove helpful for everybody. Though it is recommended that all the yogic techniques should be learnt by a yogacharya or a trained person.
