In this issue we bring the Asana vidhinirUpaNam from aShtANgayOga. The beauty of this chapter is that, instead of dealing with numerous AsanAs and demotivating the mumukShu, shri sUtA has prescribed just 9 different AsanAs and has also explained the benefits of the same from a spiritual angle instead of the physical benefits.
To the benefit of the non-tamil readers, English translation of Shri chidAnandanAthAs dIpAvali article (that was published during 1915) is included. This is a small attempt to try to translate His tamil articles for non-Tamil upAsakAs. We hope that readers would find that useful.
Since gangA japA and avaraNA, kubEra japA and AvaraNA, mahAlakSHmi japA and AvaraNA have all been already covered, we have included lakShmi ganEsha japA and AvaraNA in this issue as it also relates well to the dIpAvali festival. In addition, as skanda shaShThi falls this month, we have included the word-by-word meaning of the subhramaNya dhyAna shloka.
We thank ShrI yOgAmbA samEta AtmAnandanAthA (Shri Ramesh Kutticad) for authoring the Q&A section and also contributing the dhyAna shloka meaning in this issue.
