Yoga in the life of a contemporary person

The theme of this book is yoga as a way of life. It is a small selection of short texts that Květoslav Minařík wrote during three decades as answers to questions and problems of his disciples.

The introductory texts start with an explanation of the meaning of yoga, its place in the everyday life of a normal citizen, and how it helps to solve the problems of life. The author devotes considerable attention to the way concentration is carried out, he warns against its incorrect understanding and in the short text, which is co-authored by doc. MUDr. Antonín Bajer he provides proofs of the brain activity during various types of yogic concentration. Futher texts deal with various philosophical and spiritual schools, which are today again topical, such as Buddhism and Zen Buddhism. The following texts shed light on the relationships between yoga and physical and mental health, the question of immortality and the problem of sexuality. For an easier orrientation in the less well known, or for this author specific terms, there is a vocabulary appended. At the end there are several personal memories of Květoslav Minařík by a top Czech Indologist PhDr. Boris Merhaut.
