Swami Lakshman Jee is the last living Master of the oral tradition in Kashmir Shaivism. This exposition of the non-dual philosophy with practical applications is his first book in English. The tantric teachings are hidden in a language of allusion and symbol. Swamiji offers the skeleton key of the oral tradition that allows access to secrets. The intent is to preserve the tradition and to make it available. The emphasis is on practical realization of Truth through the experience of Kundalini Yoga. The author contrasts this realization with the concepts of liberation taught by other schools of Indian philosophy especially Advaita Vedanta Kashmir Shaivism experiences the world as real and true – as real and true as the existence of God. Liberation is unbroken awareness of this universe as one’s own transcendental Consciousness. It is blissful realization.
