From the Publisher

Kundalini Yoga for the West represents the heart of Swami Radha's teaching. As a Westerner following an Eastern tradition, it was her mission to interpret and update the ancient teachings to make them accessible to contemporary practitioners. She first wrote Kundalini Yoga for the West in 1978 after twenty years of dedicated spiritual practice.

Format: Paperback
You can change your life by working with this book. I have and so have many people I know. It guides you to answer the tough questions about life: What is birth? What is death? What is the purpose of your life? How do I use my speech? It has many exercises to help each of us elevate our lives, to make the ordinary sacred. It's a book for a lifetime, one to take on a desert island. I've read it at least ten times and there's always more to learn from it.

14 of 15 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on January 28, 1999
Format: Hardcover
It is a book full of wisdom and asks for our courage and our commitment to our personal growth. Swami Radha provides us with an excellent bridge through which we can bridge the ancient Teachings to our western thoughts and life styles. In working with the book I have learnt about who I am and what is the purpose of my life. She requires us to be honest and requires us to empower ourselves as we meet ourselves and as we recognize the divine that is within us. It is a book that has been a key to understanding my life and my daily lessons. I highly recommend it to any one who is interested in growing into their full clear potential...

Format: Paperback
Have you ever wondered how to make sense of your own life? Ever been in so much pain that you did not think you could bear it? Ever had a nagging feeling that there had to be more? Ever wanted to clarify your direction and purpose? Then, this book could be for you.

Truly a treasure, this text demystifies the ancient esoteric teachings of kundalini yoga by offering a practical and inspiring roadmap into your own heart, mind and soul. Between its covers, you will find exercises, practices, and questions that, when approached with sincerity, will launch you onto your person path of passion to inner and outer fulfillment. This text is like a light house that has the power to lift you out of your darkest nightmares into a sweetness never before imagined. Truly the sky is the limit!
Recently I was asked, If I was left alone on a deserted island and could only take one book with me, what book would that be? Undoubtly, Kundalini Yoga for the West would be it! But please, don't take my word for it - best to find out for yourself!
