This is one of the best books on kundalini. I have been meditating for years and didn't understand the symptoms I was experiencing until I read this book. A great book on raising kundalini safely and without trauma. A classic.
I enjoyed this book, and continue to do so. It is written clearly and simply, without a lot of convoluted psycho-babble and over-"hinduized" analogies.
Kundalini is a real energy force, as are the chakra "wheels." Whether the Hindus claim Kundalini for themselves, or the Buddhists or Christians...it makes no difference. Incorporating Kundalini energy work into one's specific religion is a choice all are free to make. However, it must be kept in mind that Kundalini, separate and apart from all religious implications, is not (or should not be considered) a religion unto itself. It is more closely alligned with scientific truths, as Western medicine is at long last beginning to recognize.
This book is a good place to start if you are interested in learning more about the awesome potential that lies within us all. There is no dogma attached, which is refreshing to someone like me. From this book one can dive into other more reference-oriented books on the subject.
