IJOYS Volume 3 – Issue 1
I am delighted to bring the next volume of IJOYAS on a very special occasion of Ganga Dusshera – Gayatri Jayanti. It is a privilege to release this issue on this Holy day. It is stated in the scriptures that the Holy River Ganga arrived on the earth on this very day. We also celebrate the jayanti of the Deti of secret mantra of Gayatri. She is an aspect of Mata Saraswati, Mata Lakshmi & Mata Parvati, all three in one form, a form of Adi Shakti, possessing the Rajasi Guna and hence is the source of Brahma’s power. Without her, Brahma remains dormant or unable to create. I pray mata Gayatri to illuminate our intellect to lead us along the righteous path.
Readers might be aware that IJOYAS provides a really exciting opportunity to consider the truly interdisciplinary nature of Yoga and other allied studies going on all over. The objective of this journal is to publish up-to-date, high-quality and original research papers alongside relevant and insightful reviews. It includes technical and professionalaspects of Yoga and allied disciplines like Philosophy, Spirituality, Psychology, Human Consciousness, Medical, Paramedical sciences, Health sciences, Therapy, Education, Physical education, exercise and sports sciences, biomechanics, Literary/textual studies, Physiology, Biochemistry etc.
My sincere thanks to Dr Latha Satish for her kind support and thanks to all the contributors of this issue. Needless to say, any papers that you wish to submit, either individually or
collaboratively, are much appreciated and will make a substantial contribution to the development and success of the journal.
