accomplishment rather than personal advancement. Drawn from timeless
yogic wisdom, these insights are clear, succinct, and practical, designed for
quick results. Widely used in training seminars in the USA, Europe, and India,

personal eff ectiveness, creativity, and team-building. Individual entrepreneurs,
small businesses, international corporations, military and police personnel,
government departments, and NGOs now follow this approach. It is also
invaluable for parents raising children, teachers wishing to draw the best out
of their students, salespeople seeking to interest their customers in particular
products, or anyone else wanting to win others to a point of view.
