This book consists of twelve easy and interesting Lessons. The first lesson deals with Yoga and its objects. The second lesson treats practice of Yoga and contains a clear and lucid description of the four important paths viz. Karma Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Raja Yoga, and Jnana Yoga. One can easily choose for himself a path according to his particular taste, temperament and capacity by a close study of these lessons.
The Easterners interested in Yogic practices take resort to books and other literature on the subject, which were either unintelligible to them, or had been written by persons whose aim was to show off their learning rather than to teach Yoga and make the subject intelligible and interesting to the public. This is the difference between book written by most and those by Swami Sivananda.
This book has been specially designed keeping in the mind of needs of the students of Yoga in Europe and America, who need a practical but non-technical presentation of the subject in a language which is accessible to the beginner in the path. This book will amply serve this most sacred purpose in view.
