Kundalini - The Secret of Yoga (New)
by Krishna, Gopi
Book ID: 9780917776113, 0917776119
Usually available in 1-2 weeks
Although some aspects of the ancient discipline of Yoga are currently familiar in the West, the real nature and purpose of' this profound science of the soul is still widely misunderstood. And in the East, where the discipline was born and reached its peak many centuries ago, much of the knowledge gained has since been lost.
Gopi Krishna, drawing upon his own experience of Higher Consciousness, has re-examined the discipline of Yoga and its psychosomatic lever -- Kundalini -- in the light of modern knowledge and presents for the first time a clear and comprehensive analysis of this amazing subject. Citing the real goal of Yoga and the most effective way to achieve it, he describes the biological and physiological aspects of the discipline, the rewards of a successful effort, and the tremendous significance true Yoga has for the continued survival and healthy evolution of the race.
The author explains that Yoga and kundalini are interchangeable terms, for there is no Yoga and no union of the individual with Cosmic Consciousness unless kundalini is activated. The whole matter boils down to this: the human brain, as the result of evolution, has now the capacity to exhibit another kind of consciousness which can know itself or, in other words become conscious of consciousness, look beyond Space and Time. What is more surprising, instead of arriving at a conclusion by reasoning, as every normal mind does, it can dive into an Ocean of Knowledge in which all that is knowable is known, and all the problems awaiting solutions are solved. From this ocean, droplets of fresh knowledge trickle down into normal consciousness, according to the degree of attunement with the brain, and it is these droplets of rare knowledge, not possible to recognize by empirical methods, which have always been honored as Revelation .
