Comparing canines with people, Marilyn Monroe once said, “A dog will never tell you to shut up”?

    If you are thoughtful, reflective, in tune with nature -- you are ready for more formal meditation -- and ready for this book.
    Meditation is a tool available to everyone; no matter how callous or spiritual, well-adjusted or complex one's life is. Knowing why and how to meditate are arguably the most important signals of approaching an enlightened life.
    These sixteen chapters follow the sequence of the Anapanasati Sutta, according to the Four Foundations of Meditation. The inspiration and teachings of the Satipatthana Sutta and the Dhammacakkappavattana
    Sutta: Setting the Wheel of Dhamma in Motion, the Buddha's first discourse, are incorporated. Beyond that autobiographical sketches inform the reader about how possible, natural, and easy meditation is.
    These simple facts are not disputed by most people, and the best thing that can be said about each teaching in this book is: I know that... I agree with that simple truth! The sequence of the book leads from one simple truth to the next following a logical path to eliminating suffering (Nirodha) in a practical way. The book can be read from front to back, or opened at any point by experienced meditators for inspirational ideas.

    ABOUT THE BOOK
    Millions of people worldwide struggle every day to lose weight and fit into their ideal dress or pant size. Even when people try their hardest with the latest celebrity dieting craze, slimming down can be very difficult. There are thousands of fad diets on the market that are designed to speed up the weight loss process, many of which are unsustainable or difficult to manage. Alternative therapies act as a kinder, and often less challenging, alternative to dropping excess pounds. They adopt a natural approach that tends to your mental and physical well being.
    Alternative therapies for weight loss are no longer exclusive to those who live in cosmopolitan areas. There has now been an emergence of therapists who have opened offices across the country, ready to offer their services. Even small towns have alternative therapists who can help you take approaches to your diet and overall health that you will not get from a fad diet or doctor. It is also possible to find herbal treatments in health food shops, as well as online.
    EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK
    Meditation for weight loss is ideal for those who are willing to take a patient approach to losing weight. As meditating is an art that comes with practice, it is better to move slowly rather than rushing the process and expecting miracles. As meditation focuses on building your self image, you need to assess why you eat and when you eat. If you are someone who tends to eat when you feel stressed or when you wish to cope with extreme emotions, meditation is likely to be ideal for you. If you are someone who eats on a constant basis, you may want to consider slightly more invasive therapies, such as acupuncture or herbal remedies.
    Before heading for your first meditation session, decide whether you are capable of leading this therapy for yourself. Anyone can meditate; it does not require guidance. However, if you have a hard time committing to something on a regular basis or if you lack in confidence, you may wish to consider trying your first few sessions with a professional or with the aid of an MP3.
    Hypnosis
    If meditation appeals to you, but you feel that a speedier approach is needed, hypnosis is another option you might wish to consider. Hypnosis for weight loss is a therapy that has been endorsed by many celebrities, including famous singer Lily Allen, who claims to have gone from a size eight to a size four. After her astounding weight loss success, Lily spoke out about how she felt following hypnotherapy, stating "After the hypnotism, I want to go to the gym every day, otherwise I feel really bad." Hypnosis works on reprogramming the brain, encouraging you to naturally adopt eating and exercise habits that will make you lose weight...

    Dealing With Impotence Naturally

    Whether we like it or not, for many men it gets increasingly difficult to
    perform sexually as the years advance.
    While every individual is different, for a significant percentage of the
    male of the species, impotency can become an ever worsening problem
    as the years roll by, although because it is a condition that can be
    caused by a wide range of medical problems, it is actually a condition
    that can strike any man at any age.
    There are sound scientific reasons why this condition afflicts so many
    men, and we will consider these reasons in the early part of the book.
    Over the past few years, many new drugs have come onto the market
    to counter impotency, and there is no doubt that many of these drugs
    are effective for a significant proportion of men who suffer from the
    condition.
    The downside of these preparations is that they are chemically based,
    because it is well known that pharmaceutical chemicals almost always
    have side-effects, some of which can be nothing more than unpleasant,
    while others can be downright dangerous.
    For the purposes of presenting as complete and comprehensive picture
    as possible, we will also consider some of the more popular
    pharmaceutical impotency preparations in his book. However, I am
    going to focus attention on some of the known possible side-effects of
    the drugs, because the purpose of this book is to draw attention to the
    benefits of using natural impotency treatments rather than chemicals.

    The book has got four parts. The first one is basically autobiographical with a view to bring home the readers how Abdul Vahab Sobirov, a Muslim by birth gets so much engrossed in a system he would hardly get any support from his tradition. But Sobirov takes the readers much farther to suggest that the present divide caused by known history will no way affect the imminent fundamental unity of mankind which must usher in a short while from now.     
      Part Two imparts some of the important principles of Yoga teachings. Part Three is the India of Sobir s  dream and aspiration. It also records Indias thick relationship with him.
       The Fourth part strongly urges that Yoga is now a Global Cult and it should undoubtedly unite all peoples on the earth to live in harmony and peace for ever.
       In the appendix part Sobirov has reproduced some valuable information about the values of food stuff we take and should be aware of in our daily food habit.
        Its editor and co-author PD Mishra evidently contributes substantially with a cross-border bond of unity (Yoga) by his intrinsic presence throughout.
