Of the various types and modes of service that can be rendered to the ailing humanity - morally, mentally and physically ailing humanity, medical service stands above all others. The present publication by Sri Swami Sivanandaji is offered as his boon to suffering humanity.
The divine grandeur and majestic beauty of leading an ideal spiritual life lies in the active interest that a spiritual aspirant takes in serving all humanity with Atma Bhava or Narayana Bhav. This the Sage of Ananda Kutir preaches silently through his own practical exemplary living.
Of the various types and modes of service that can be rendered to the ailing humanity—morally, mentally and physically ailing humanity, medical service stands above all others, for, has it not been said Mens Sane Corpore Sane, has it not been asserted beyond doubt Sareeramadyam Khalu Dharma-sadhanam! As such, viewed from all quarters physical well-being is an essential and foremost pre-requisite for pursuing any walk of life. Bringing out this noble ideal and truth through his various activities, Sri Swami Sivanandaji has in addition to publishing the monthly journal "Health and Long Life" already given us a number of books on health and on medical subjects. As his boon to the suffering humanity, Sri Swami Sivanandaji’s work ‘Home Nursing’ is presently published.
Needless it is to point out that the books published in this series are written to educate the laymen.
May the ‘Home Nursing’ find its way into all household and be a sincere guide and divine healer!
