Kavitha Ramakrishna's book 'Tamoghna' released.
Well-known Tanjore style artist, Sanskrit language expert, yoga practioneer, author and dedi-cated educator Kavitha Rama-krishna's book Tamoghna was recently released by H E Munu Mahawar, Ambassador of India.
The book celebrates the powerful ancient Indian practice of yoga and its formidable therapeutic technique suryanamaskar (salutations to the sun).
The book was unveiled in the presence of prominent dignitaries from Oman including Yuthar al Rawahy, founder of the Oman Cancer Association (OCA) and Dr Wahid al Kharusi, president of OCA.
Tamoghna, meaning 'dispeller of darkness', takes readers on a journey beyond the physical benefits of yoga and suryanamaskar. It touches upon the history of yogic philosophy, essence of yoga practice and deals specifically with vast benefits of suryanamaskar.
H E Mahawar said, "I am delighted to release the book, Tamoghna, which provides a wide-ranging overview of suryanamaskar and its benefits. I would like to compliment Kavitha Ramakrishna for her determined efforts to promote yoga and its dynamic technique suryanamaskar. The book will be useful for beginners as well as habitual practitioners."
Kavitha said, "I handpicked this particular topic because I consider yoga as an invaluable gift from the ancient India to the world. My mission was to draw attention to maximise the benefits of yoga by including the technique of suryanamaskar into people's daily routine.
"I hope as many people as possible benefit from the practice of suryanamaskar which revitalises every aspect of one's being from physical to spiritual."
