Reclaiming Kundalini Yoga
by Babaji Bob Kindler
Publisher: SRV Associations
In this clear, contemporary restatement of the time honored system of Kundalini Yoga, Babaji Bob Kindler utilizes foundational texts of the tradition - such as the Devi Gita and the Yoga Kundalini Upanishad - as he leads us step by step through the practical spiritual disciplines, and toward their ultimate consummation in spiritual realization. An important feature of this book is that the traditional teachings are unveiled within the context of the recent revitalization of the system by Sri Ramakrishna, whose own experiences and spiritual realization served to deepen our understanding of the original spirit of this Divine Mother Path. Devotional practice, meditation, and mantra science are discussed, as well as the role of pure and sanctified food, and how to utilize its sublimated energy. A higher spiritual orientation for both Asana and Pranayama is transmitted, which comes as a welcome antidote to the hatha-oriented explanations commonly given these days that tend to miss the real context for their practice within the authentic tradition of Kundalini Yoga.
