Ánanda Márga Yogic Chikitsa and Dravyagun’a

Preliminary part[Preface]

The object of “Art of healing is to cure a patient, both physically and mentally”.

So main question is not to uphold any particular school of medical science; rather the key task is welfare of the patient.

Just as in diseased body, organs can be restored to normal by administering medicines internally or externally, they can also be healed, more safely and more perfectly, with the help of Yogásanas and Mudrás.

The aim of this book, therefore, is to make general public aware of Yogic methods of treating the various illnesses.

MY purpose is to let people cure themselves by practicing Yogásanas and Mudrás described in this book. People are requested not to take risk of practicing Yogásanas and Mudrás by themselves, but rather to do so under the guidance of an experienced Ácárya.

Ananda Marga Ácáryas will always be ready to help

without any remuneration.[cannot give Yogásana classes for money]

Detailed instructions for practicing Yogásanas and Mudrás, for bathing, etc. have been given in Caryácarya. If necessary, the reader may consult that book.

Along with Yogásanas and Mudrás, a list of some free or inexpensive and easily-available, but proven and useful, medical remedies, as well as methods of their application, has been given in this book.

The public can make use of these applications by themselves, or, if needed, may consult experienced Ácáryas in this respect also.

Due to limitations of time, it is not possible for me to enter into personal correspondence with anybody. Any person having questions regarding Yogásanas and Mudrás and their performance or  medicines and their applications, may contact their respective Ácárya, or may get in touch with the secretary of their local village or district committee or of the Central Committee of Ananda Marga.

So much for now.
