      Book Synopsis

      Blood Pressure: Its Cause and Cure
      By Swami Sivananda

      Blood Pressure is fast becoming something in the
      nature of a universal malady. In the West especially
      high blood pressure with its comcomitants like
      apoplexy, paralysis, etc., is assuming menacing
      proportions and the medical profession seems to find
      itself helpless to cope up with this dire enemy of
      human health and welfare. But for the gravity of the
      threat to human life held out by High Blood Pressure
      and the almost invariable fatality ultimately
      resulting from it one may be inclined to remark in
      jest that blood pressure has come to occupy the
      position of the foremost "fashionable disease" of
      this century. Above a certain age the average man is
      almost certain to have blood pressure complication in
      some degree or other as a part and parcel of his
      declining health picture. Though knowing quite a lot
      about the actual 'condition' called blood pressure
      yet the doctors all over the world seem hard put to
      lay their finger upon the exact causative factors
      responsible for bringing about the specific
      "condition". Nor have they been quite successful in
      finding suitable, rational, effective therapeutical
      agents to overcome radically this complaint.

      This book will certainly provide very important and
      valuable knowledge on the subject, the possession of
      which is bound to be extremely useful both to the
      patient as also to the doctor, who needs the former's
      intelligent cooperation all along, if his treatment
      is to be rewarded with any measure of success.

      A valuable feature of this work is the psychological
      and spiritual hints we have included in it for the
      attainment of subtle, inner strength, sound and
      serene mind and a state of radiant vitality by the
      earnest seeker after health and well-being.

      This book goes forth to do its mite in the cause of
      the all-round, i.e., the physical, mental,
      intellectual and ethical welfare of mankind.

      SHYNESS AN OBSTACLE: While addressing the South
      Indian Journalists' Federation at Rama Buildings,
      Mount Road, Madras, during his All-India Tour, the
      Master sang the Vittala Kirtan. Here again he noticed
      that some people were not responding to the Lord's
      Name. He pointed out how, in the life of those with
      no spiritual background, there came knocks and blows
      to turn them towards God. "Those who are endowed with
      discrimination will start singing Kirtan now," he
      said, and again sang, "Vittala, Vittala, Vittala."
      This time the response was astonishingly good, but he
      was not wholly satisfied.

      "There is a little shyness," he remarked. "Shyness is
      an obstacle to both material and spiritual progress."
      And he repeated the story of Mira.
