Pages: 174 (Illustrated Throughout In B/W & Color)
From back of the book

This book presents the oral teaching of the twentieth century’s great Kashmir Shaivite master. The last of his long lineages, Swami Lakshmanjoo preserved, as did his predecessors, the oral knowledge that illuminates this ancient philosophy – that clarifies the often deliberately obscure tantric texts.

Swami Lakshmanjoo reveals the essence of the way and the means to self realization. Here in his won original discourses, as well as in his English renderings of Abhinavagupta and Kshemaraja, he unveils the essential teachings of this yoga philosophy.

Swami Lakshmanjoo reveals the tantric understanding of the purpose and reason for creation. He offers instruction on the greatness and importance of the supreme mantra sauh. In his presentation of effective practice, he explains why meditation is both effortless and, at the same time, difficult. In his discussion of discipline he clarifies why personal habits and dispositions play an important part in spiritual growth. Finally, in his unveiling of the path of Kundalini yoga, he is intent on exposing and thereby preserving this hidden elevated process while warning of its pitfalls.

 

Foreword

I still vividly recall coming across, as an undergraduate during the late sixties, a small book by Paul Reps entitled Zen Flesh, Zen Bones. This genuine spiritual classic continues to have wide appeal today. What most especially stuck in my mind then, in addition to Reps’s sensitive retelling of 101 delightful Zen stories, was the account of his visit to the Kashmir Valley, known because of its mountainous beauty as the “Switzerland of India.” There he discovered what he felt was an important pre – Zen text
