He worked as Astt. Director of Scientific Research, Dy. Director of Philosophico-Literary Research and Principal, G.S.

He has been an advisor to Teachers Training Progarammes in Europe and Latin America.

 

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.

I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
