देवाच्या डाव्या हाती
(प्रथम आवृत्ती - मार्च २००९, द्वितीय आवृत्ती - ऑक्टोबर २०११)
कुंडलिनी योग अध्यात्म जीवनाचा राजमार्ग आहे. जगदंबा कुंडलिनीला जागृत करून तीचे सहस्रार स्थित शिवाशी सामरस्य घडवून आणणे हे कुंडलिनी योगमार्गाचे मुलतत्व. अनेकदा कुंडलिनी योग गूढतेच्या अनावश्यक धुक्याने वेढलेला आठळतो. हा मार्ग फक्त जंगलात वा हिमालयात वास्तव्य करणार्या योग्यांसाठीच आहे असा गैरसमज बहुतांशी लोकांमधे आढळतो. देवाच्या डाव्या हाती' या पुस्तकात श्री. बिपीन जोशी यांनी स्वतःचे कुंडलिनी योगमार्गावरील अनुभव विषद केले आहेत. एक नवखा साधक ते योगी या प्रवासात त्यांना कोणत्या अडचणी आल्या, त्यांनी मोठ्या जिद्दीने हा प्रवास कसा पार केला याचे प्रभावी वर्णन या पुस्तकात आढळते.
Kundalini Yoga : Concepts and Practices
Kundalini Yoga : Concepts and Practices is a unique guide to
the ancient knowledge of Kundalini Yoga. Written in simple and lucid
language the book is a great addition to your book shelf. Kundalini Yoga
is often considered as something dangerous, mysterious and not to be
practiced by ordinary Yoga aspirants. This book demystifies the concepts
such as Pancha Tattwas, Nadis, Pranas, Koshas, Kundalini and Chakras in
a jargon free language. It brings the subject out of mythological
explanations still keeping the correctness and essence intact. Theory
without practice is useless. The book explains many techniques for
awakening the Kundalini including Surya Namaskara, Meditative Asanas,
Pranayamas, Bandhas and Meditations. The author has applied the
principal of moderation while prescribing the practices which makes it
possible even for an average Yoga aspirant to learn and apply them.
Nevertheless the practices are very powerful and effective in
themselves. The author's experience and study of many ancient Yogic
texts makes the book authentic and practical.

3.5 has extensive support for XML in everything from data access to
configuration, from raw parsing to code documentation. This book

||Pro .NET 2.0 XML
(APress, April 2007)
XML is the de facto language for communication within and between
distributed applications, whether they are on the Internet or a
corporate network. XML is successful because of two strengths: it has a
highly-structured human readable format and it can be transmitted as
pure text. No matter how disparate applications and their architectures
may be, text files can always be read, and therefore can accept XML
data. This makes XML-based solutions advantageous over rival
technologies like remoting. Pro .NET 2.0 XML is the first book to
provide a complete solution to XML on the .NET Framework 2.0 including
the new .NET 3.0 extensions that are being released in January 2007. It
provides you with everything you need to know to take advantage of XML
in every aspect of your job including integration with Windows

||Developer's Guide to ASP.NET 2.0
(BinaryIntellect Consulting, November 2005)
Since Microsoft introduced ASP.NET the overall web application
development is revolving around ASP.NET as far as Microsoft product
based solutions are concerned. ASP.NET brought a major shift in the way
applications are built and deployed. Web applications suddenly became so
rich and powerful! Continuing the same wave further Microsoft has
introduced ASP.NET 2.0. The new version is totally backward compatible
with ASP.NET 1.x. However, it introduces some major enhancements and
additions. While building version 2.0 the goal of ASP.NET team within
Microsoft has been to reduce the amount of code that developers are
writing today to a great degree. Version 2.0 brings more than 40 new
controls and provides many new classes and concepts. With these
additions ASP.NET 2.0 is poised to be stronger, flexible and powerful
than ever before. This book is about ASP.NET 2.0. It teaches you most of
the concepts that you need to make yourself up and running with ASP.NET

complete platform for web application development. You will find many
topics that are equally applicable in ASP.NET 1.x also. Care has been

||Professional ADO.NET with VB.NET
(WROX Press, December 2002)
ADO.NET is Microsoft's latest data access technology and, as an integral
part of the .NET Framework, is far more than just an ADO upgrade.
ADO.NET provides an extensive set of .NET classes that facilitate
efficient access to data in a large variety of sources, enable
sophisticated manipulation and sorting of data, and form an important
framework within which to implement inter-application communication.
This book provides a comprehensive guide to using ADO.NET, with plenty
of practical code examples and extensive technical information. Whether
you're developing web applications using ASP.NET, Windows Forms
applications, or XML Web Services, this book will show you how to use
.NET's data access technology to maximum effect. Along the way, it looks
at: Understanding the architecture of the ADO.NET data providers,
Reading and writing data with data readers, data adapters and DataSets,
Making development safer with XML Schemas and strongly typed DataSets,

||Professional XML for .NET Developers
(WROX Press, December 2001)
XML is now an established technology for the description and
transportation of data, and has made a major impact on almost every
aspect of software development. When Microsoft introduced the .NET
Framework, they took advantage of XML wherever they could. No other
technology is so tightly bound with .NET as XML, both at the developer
level and underlying the whole framework. This book aims to give the
reader enough information to be able to use XML from within the .NET
Framework in the most efficient manner possible. It will explain in
detail the usage of all the XML-related .NET Framework library classes
for the manipulation, validation, transformation, and serialization of
XML data, using both C# and Visual Basic .NET. It also looks at how the
developer can utilize the full power of XML within the .NET Framework,
for example, with the new XML capabilities of ADO.NET and ASP.NET. As is
demonstrated, the .NET Framework itself uses XML, in configuration
files, meta data, and C#'s XML code documentation mechanism, for
example. This book is aimed at intermediate-level programmers who have
started on their journey towards .NET development, and who want to see
how to use XML within their applications to its best advantage. Basic
knowledge of C# or Visual Basic .NET, XML, and XML related technologies
(XSLT, XPath, and XML Schemas) is necessary.
