Dr. Ganesh Umakant Thite, Retd. HOD - Sanskrit and Prakrut languages, University of Pune; Previously - Hon. Curator at Bhandarkar Oriental Research Institute (Dr. Ganesh Thite retired from the University of Pune as professor and head of the department of Sanskrit and Prakrit languages. He has written numerous books and articles on the vedic ritual, music, medicine, classical literature, and religion & philosophy. He has also translated books on the vedic ritual from the German and French into English. He is well-known for his refreshingly original point of view and has revolutionized the study of Indology.)
This book on Adhiyoga (or the Authentic Yoga) by Mr. Neel Kulkarni is a unique and original contribution of the author to the traditional Yoga. It absorbs all the earlier concepts of Yoga like concentration of mind and physical exercises, but adds many new concepts from modern Psychology and modern Physiology. It aims at maintaining the social and cultural harmony. It gives emphasis on music and other arts, thus trying to make a person a perfect Yogi with balanced mind and body. While the ultimate aim of the Classical Yoga was liberation (moksha), the ultimate aim of the Adhiyoga is social harmony and individual balanced life.
