Our sagacious ancestors of the Vedic Age had gifted with precious
heritage of the yoga-science of well-being. However, with changing
civilizations and attitudes towards life, in the course of time, people
largely became materialistic and ignored the ancient sciences.
Subsequent single-tracked commercialized civilization and inclination
towards bodily comforts and sensual pressures has raised several
problems in the present times. One is so busy making money and seeking
more and more comforts that one tends to neglect the fact that the
mind-body system is also like a machine, which needs careful maintenance
and "re-charging" of its components and power units. As a result, one
is facing unprecedented threats and challenges on the health front.
Preventive measures and augmentation of stamina and resistance are
crucial if one wants to sustain a healthy and hearty life.
