Kundalini Yoga is a direct path to higher consciousness. It is the process of conscious cooperation with evolution. Within each of us there lies a vast potential of energy and power which, when properly understood and directed, will lead to previously unimagined heights of perception and awareness.
In ancient times, the process of evolution was preserved in the symbolic picture language of the Kundalini yoga system. Down through the ages the gurus and spiritual teachers have used these symbols as the key in directing aspirants to the realization of their own hidden potential. Swami Sivananda Radha continues in this noble tradition of the transmission of knowledge. Her book is based upon twenty years of her own practice and experience. She has demystified Kundalini Yoga so that it can be understood and applied in the daily lives of men and women of today.
This is a book of inspiration, and also an eminently practical one. Tools to bring quality into life are given for those who wish to cooperate with evolution. Swami Radha has presented clear directions for exercises and practices.
Because of its emphasis on self-development, this book will be of particular value to those in the helping professions.
Swami Sivananda Radha has written a book destined to become a classic in the literature of altered states of consciousness. She has succeeded magnificently in describing the Kundalini tradition and in making it accessible for those individuals in our troubled culture who are badly in need of its cleansing flame.

In view of the growing interest in the inner way by which we attempt to tune into the forces of evolution, Kundalini Yoga may well mark a break-through, long expected and long overdue.
