AHYMSIN Publishers announces the publication of a new book by Swami Veda Bharati: Kundalini – Stilled or Stirred?.
Tantra, an exposition of śrī-vidyā, is a thread of Vedic tantu. This ray of the light of consciousness folds about itself as a coil (kuṇḍala), forming the coiled energies of the conscious universe, thus becoming kuṇḍalinī.
This book looks at Tantra from a different perspective against the common view of it being more associated with its carnal/sexual nature. Tantra is the art of “celibacy”. Human beings are a wave in the ocean of Consciousness, and this wave passes through our psycho-physiological complex compound, forming the personal kuṇḍalinī. All sensations in the human body are manifestations of the presence of kuṇḍalinī. Our desires are the signals released by the kuṇḍalinī. Different psycho-physical apparatuses are plugged into it like electrical plugs in different sockets.
This volume, while portraying kuṇḍalinī from its psycho-physical and spiritual implications and impacts, tries to alleviate some misconceptions about the nature of cakras – the consciousness centers. It deals at length with the phenomena of higher levels of spiritual evolution – “raising the kuṇḍalinī” and “opening the cakras” – helping one drop all mental habit patterns to achieve “liberation”. This book is a “must read” for the practitioners of Yoga and all who want to take their spiritual life to a new realm.
