Mind and body interact on each other, body is preponderantly governed by the mind. Control the mind and then there will be unfoldment of spirituality - "Man is potentially divine - the aim is to manifest this divinity". This book helps one to live a higher and saner life.
It, in deed, forms the first rung in the ladder of ‘Self-Inquiry’ of Ramana Maharishi Yoga which leads to self-realization.
Yoga not only means inhibition of mental modification - but it also means leading a life of a perfect action - i.e. yoga is perfection and excellence in performing any work or duty as a dedication and offering to God. Further, yogis can discern the basic teaching of Astanga Yoga of Patanjali leading to the discovery of the Self (Atma Jnana). The topics are beautifully inter woven to be easy for everyone to follow regardless of age, race, and religion. Even for children it is an excellent book to lay the foundation of moral life.
I can boldly say that it is a beacon (of light) for those who wish to rediscover the path that leads to blessedness, spiritual enlightenment, and prosperity.
