Description

“Prayer is the key of morning and bolt of evening”: In terse words, Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj sums up the entire significance of what may be appropriately called spiritual Sadhana with universal scope. For, the rich and poor, the healthy and the disabled, young and old-all can pray, anytime, anywhere. Prayer is a luxury to none: a necessity for all.

There is no gainsaying the fact that in the day is begun a few moments of communion with God and ended up a few more moments of thanksgiving, life’s burdens will be largely lessened. It will introduce certain stability and balance our daily lives by enabling us to draw on the fount of a higher wisdom.

The book is divided into five sections. Section One contains Swamiji’s cryptic aphorisms on the technique of prayer and its benefits. In the next three Sections are included his prayers, in prose and in verse, classified under suitable heads. Section Five contains short essays on the subject.
