About This Book

The wise sage and practical spiritual leader of the modern world, Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj, started life as a doctor of the body. What is more significant, even at the very outset of his career as a physician and surgeon, Sri Swami Sivananda (then Dr. Kuppuswamy) revealed it as his mission that he should broadcast the correct knowledge of the body and its functions, and of health and hygiene, with an insistence upon prevention as better than cure.

As the reader is aware, Sri Swamiji, even after renouncing his lucrative medical practice, and all worldly pleasures and ambitions, and even while being engaged in intense spiritual practices, took an extraordinary pleasure in serving the sick and in educating the people in the principles of Health and Hygiene.

This volume, thus, is not only an authoritative text on Health and Hygiene from the pen of one who has been deeply interested in these aspects of life, but also the expression of the sage’s supreme concern in the welfare of all beings—Sarvabhutahite Ratah.
