Organology and sensology in Yogashastra
This is an English translation of Sri Prashantji's original Marathi book. This pocket sized book opens up a whole new dimension on our understandng on how the organs and senses work. It gives us a very interesting combination of modern, physiological perspective on the organs and senses and the yogic understanding of the same. The general understanding is that the senses of the eyes are for seeing, ears for hearing, skin for feeling and nose for smelling.
This book explains how the functioning of the senses in not just mechanical like the eyes beings like cameras or the ears like a tape-recorder and how these senses are affected by the our mind, intelligence and emotions.
It explains how the organs have their ‘own mind’ and how they are influenced by the emotions. For example, the heart beat rises with physical exercise and so also with fear.
A book which will open up our horizons and the way we ‘look’ at our organs and senses. Ultimately it would naturally influence the way we practice our āsana-s and prāņāyama as these in turn influence and are influenced by our organs and senses!
