About the Author
The author of this book Shri Rameshwar Das Gupta was born in Narela on the 16th of April 1923. He came into close contact of Acharya Bhagwan Dev (Now known as Omanand Saraswatiji Maharaj) at the tender age of eleven. He started to practice Yog under his guidance and was also interested in the welfare of society.
In the beginning Shri Gupta did some asans like 'Padm Asan', 'Baddha-Padm Asan', 'Chakr Asan', 'Shirsh Asan', 'Tad Asan', etc. and later on practiced meditation.
One day while meditating he felt although he was being lifted up into the air where he experience a great bliss in roaming around beautiful gardens.
In 1936-37 he started business. For 40 years he was continuously in business and discharging his family obligations. But throughout he maintained strict discipline regarding his life-style and food-habits along with that he kept up his practice of 'Yogasans',
After 1973 the responsibility of business lessened which gave him more time for the practice of Yog. He now started to spend three to four hours everyday for 'Yog-Sadhana'.
In 1980 he wrote 'Yog Rashmi' and then as he went on perfecting the practice of Yog he wrote five more books namely 'Yog Chetna', 'Yog Pravesh', 'Dainik Yog' and Motapa Aur Budhapa. On demand of many readers all these books were published in English also 'Yog Rashmi' was translated into Marathi and Urdu as well.
