Raja Yoga by Swami Vivekananda

What is Raja Yoga? A lot of people want to know what Raja Yoga is but don’t know what it means. The simple answer to this question is that Raja Yoga is part of the eight branches and ventures of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. It was the most translated book in medieval India and even got translated in Arabic.

Some people equated Yoga Sutras to Tantra but there is no truth in that. It was actually in the 18 century that Swami Vivekananda identified it as a component of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. The Raja Yoga gives a way to deal with preparing, stances, pranayama and contemplation. It was Raja Yoga has different names, for example, Classical Yoga, Royal Yoga, Royal Union, Sahaj Marg and most prevalently the Astanga Yoga. It frames the base of what is yoga in the Western world. Even in India, Yoga Sutras form the foundations of the classical Yoga and its philosophies. You can read about this in the commentaries by Swami Vivekananda.

Taj Mahal in Pictures

Taj Mahal is one of the most fasinating buldings of all times. Built by Shah Jahal for his wife, today, its stands as the most famous monument of love. If you wanted to visit the Taj Mahal but didn't know where to start then you will like this book. It is available on all Amazon stores around the world. The book is called, TAJ MAHAL: Taj Mahal in Pictures: Travel Guide to the Taj Mahal". I remember visiting the Taj Mahal when I was in college in Patna and really loved it. I could not get it out of my head and when I visited it again few months ago I liked it even more. No building is as fascinating then the Taj Mahal. Anyone visiting India or Delhi then there is really no excuse not to miss this great building. It only takes a few hours to get to Agra and one can get back to Delhi the same day. So basically its a one day trip to Agra and back from Delhi. In this book, I have covered everything that would be required for anyone visiting Agra. There are some pictures which I think will be liked by those who really want to visit this site but have not done so.

Best Selling Cars in Bihar – Huge Demand

Bihar a north Indian state has been lagging behind most of the other states in India in terms of growth and economy. While the other states rushed ahead and embraced changes, Bihar took its own sweet time to join the development bandwagon. As the focus shifted towards development of infrastructure and other facilities, more and more people started buying cars in Bihar. Although it might sound strange to know, the improved law and order conditions too helped in the growth of demand for cars in the state. This is because compared to early years, the rate of kidnapping, extortion and other vices has come down, and people are now not afraid to buy cars. Thus, the state benefitted from better governance in many ways and the automobile industry too had reaped the benefits of the same.
Like the other parts of India, Bihar also has a preferential pattern when it comes to cars. Here is a look at some of the best selling cars in Bihar:

Mahindra Bolero – The Bolero is a sturdy SUV that seem to be a favourite among the car buyers of Bihar. One of the reasons for this preference could be that the Bolero can easily navigate through all kinds of tough terrains. As the roads and other infrastructure are not yet very good, using a sturdy car like this makes a lot of sense. A rough and tough SUV, the Bolero is able to perform well even under adverse conditions. Mahindra Scorpio, another best selling SUV from Mahindra also enjoys great demand in Bihar for the same reason.

Maruti Celerio – When Maruti introduced the Celerio last year, it found a lot of demand in various parts of the country. The AMT technology of the Celerio found many takers in Bihar too. Accordingly, the car was sold in great numbers in this state, following high demand for it. Likewise, other small cars from Maruti like Alto K10 and Swift also find great demand in Bihar. They are also among the best selling cars in the state.

A good car to travel with the family, Innova is one of the most preferred cars in the state.
Apart from these cars, there are many other best selling cars in Bihar. The preferences of the buyers change according to the time and availability of resources at their disposal. Hence, one can see that in big towns like Patna, the best selling cars include premium cars as well.
