A Technique of Solar Vitalization
Surya Namaskara, or salution to the sun, is an important yogic practice which dates back to ancient vedic period when the sun was worshipped as a powerful symbol of spiritual consciousness. From its esoteric origins surya namaskara has developed into a practice of twelve postures which are woven together to generate prana, subtle energy, for the purification and rejuvenation of the practitioner.
This book discusses in detail the full practice of Surya Namaskara, including Surya and Bija mantras, points of concentration and extended guidelines to aid both practitioners and teachers. An in-depth physiological study of Surya Namaskara supports its present day use as a powerful therapeutic practice.
