Not only body but mind also gets diseased and so too feelings. In fact, sickness of feelings makes mind sick and the sickness of mind makes body sick. The realm of sickness is vast.

Health is not negation of disease. It is a positive state. Taking medicine, curing disease, and restoring health—this is not the right understanding of health. Again, there will be disease and loss of health. Again, medicine will be taken and then health will be restored. In this way health becomes a handmaid of medicine. This is not the proper situation.

Health is rather a positive feeling. It is mental strength, creative thinking, pure memory and pure imagination. It is our natural capacity. By this we are always at ease. By implication it means that health is our disease-deterrent capacity. The sounder is the health, the stronger is the human. Negative thinking and negative feeling both diminish disease-deterrent capacity. Unbridled-ness of senses weakens the power of preventing disease. Medicine is to be administered to one who invites ailment. The treatments of negative attitude and of unbridled-ness of senses imply invitation to health. Conversely, positive attitude and control of senses mean invitation to health.

It is much easy to invite disease. But it is very difficult to invite health. The present work shows the process of making the difficult easy. By thinking and reflecting over it one can reach to the core of the heart.

Muni Dulahraj ji is engaged in editing work from the beginning. He is expert in this task. In editing the present work Muni Dhananjaya Kumar has taken immense pains with great devotion.
