Organology and sensology in Yogashāstra :
This book is published by RIMYI and YOG.
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!

Alpha and Omega of Trikonasana
Trikonasana has been used as an example to explain how asana practice
is a journey from external beginnings to the knowledge of the ‘soulosphere’.
The process of involution from the external geometry to the inner
purport of Trikonasana is beautifully described. Most practitioners
misunderstand the purport of the yogasanas as ‘doing the pose’.
‘Doing’, Prashantji explains, must include alerting,
activating, sensitizing, perceiving and becoming pensive and reflective
in a pose. These are all modes of ‘Doing’. He clearly
explains that Yoga is a heuristic subject where ‘one learns
from oneself and one teaches oneself’. This requires a keen
observation of the interplay of the three major players in the asana
practice – body, mind and breath.
