The original title of this book was The Concise Light on Yoga.
Based upon my Light on Yoga, which describes simply but in great detail the asanas (postures) and pranayamas (breathing disciplines), this book provides a comprehensive introduction to yoga.
London, 1980 Preface It is only thanks to the persistent encouragement of my devoted friends and pupils that this book is now achieved - for alone I would have repeatedly faltered not only because of my inadequate command of the English language but because I would have lost heart without their buoyant support and assurance.
Yoga is a timeless pragmatic science evolved over thousands of years dealing with the physical, moral, mental and spiritual well-being of man as a whole.
By its very nature it is inextricably associated with universal laws: respect for life, truth, and patience are all indispensable factors in the drawing of a quiet breath, in calmness of mind and firmness of will. For these reasons it demands a complete and total effort, involving and forming the whole human being.
