One may find many books on yoga written by great yogis in the past and even today. Most of the yogis emphasize mainly on the spiritually attainment through yoga practice. Due to certain inhibitions they skip the beauty aspect of human body. If we see the ancient sculptures of various religions and holy places in India we find vividness and character in the sculptures. These sculptures vibrate with rare sensitivity and warmth of emotions.

The main among them are 84,000 but 84000 are pre-dominant among them of these 84 are selected for special mention while 32 are considered more important and only eight or nine have been ranked as the most important and even among those four are singled out for special mention two of which are classed as outstanding and finally one is rated superior to the other.

Yogasnas assume new significance in modern times. The western system of exercises aimed at developing the bulk and the power of the muscles is the most commonly used system all over the world. this system is based on processes generating great tensions in the muscles. There is no corresponding relation of any group of muscles. The exertion in performing these exercises is harmful to the osteo articular surfaces which are utilized in these movements. Consequently a pent up tension the motor organs of the body is sometimes accompanied by various degrees of organic injury and chronic arthritic and arthromyalgic incapacity, which cripples the able bodied can to some extent be traced to this single cause.
The yogic asanas on the other hand aim at a homogeneously integrated system of neuro muscular movements in which contraction of the muscles in always consciously followed by their relaxation. At every step a mental association is established with physical actions so that the unfathomable reserves and powers of the mind are harnessed for achieving a perfect physical culture of the body.
It is now being recognized that the mind and the body the psyche and the some interact and influence each other. Yoga maintains that far reaching effects can be produced by the effect of the mind.
