Editorial Reviews

Review

The Power of Shakti is revolutionary and is bound to open the gates that have kept us from our true power as both men and women. It taps in to the heart of the ancient mysteries and articulates their modernday message to we humans. Reading this material or attending Padma Prakasha’s seminars will rock your world.” (Linda Star Wolf, author of Shamanic Breathwork and coauthor of Shamanic Mysteries of Egypt: Awakenin)

The Power of Shakti will revitalize your life by revealing the patterns of energy that flow between the physical body and the galactic universe. Equally esoteric and practical, it offers illuminating insight into holistic health through scholarly understanding of the body’s dynamic light field. The author’s profound integrity, knowledge, and experience enrich every page. This is not an ordinary book; it is unique, provocative, and fresh.” (Isha Lerner, author of The Triple Goddess Tarot and Inner Child Cards)

" . . . it's women who will find this most powerful, and new age collections that will benefit from its wisdom and spiritual teachings." (The Midwest Book Review, Oct 2009)

“A new generation of evolutionary guides is emerging. I recommend Padma Prakasha as a genuine spiritual coach who can help to transmute what stands in the way of your awakening. His work holds the light and power of change and deep transformation, a sort of ‘cosmic’ readjustment that speeds up a person’s evolutionary process.” (Margot Anand, author of The Art of Sexual Ecstasy)

“An excellent sourcebook for both women and men, every page of The Power of Shakti provides new insight into the rich, vibrant energy of the Divine Feminine. It offers a profound pathway to understanding the power and potency of this essential feminine current as it flows through the sacred temple of the physical body, linking us to the Galactic Center. In these shifting times of planetary transformation, this book assists us in rediscovering our intimate connection to nature, the earth, and the cosmos.” (Sharron Rose, author of The Path of the Priestess and film producer of 2012 The Odyssey and Timewave)

From the Back Cover

NEW AGE / SELF-TRANSFORMATION

“A new generation of evolutionary guides is emerging. I recommend Padma Prakasha as a genuine spiritual coach who can help to transmute what stands in the way of your awakening. His work holds the light and power of change and deep transformation, a sort of ‘cosmic’ readjustment that speeds up a person’s evolutionary process.”
--Margot Anand, author of The Art of Sexual Ecstasy

Shakti is the Divine life force that ceaselessly manifests, creates, and activates. Igniting this living power within is the key for both men and women to transform themselves and attain union, harmony, and peace. The fluid intelligence of Shakti enflames, empowers, and awakens the life force, joy, and organic wisdom within.

Uniting the forms of Tantra Yoga found in Indian, Tibetan, and Aramaic sacred traditions, Padma Aon Prakasha reveals how to activate the power of Shakti by opening the 18 energetic pathways of the Shakti Circuit. The circuit begins with galactic energy entering the body at the Alta Major chakra, located at the back of the head. Traveling down the pillar of the spine through the root chakra, the circuit passes through the seven gates of the Grail Womb to link the sacred sexual center and the heart center. From the heart, the energy completes the circuit by traveling to the third eye and back to the Alta Major starting point to reveal the all-seeing eye.

Centered on the womb in women and the hara in men, the Shakti Circuit links the soul, bodymind, emotions, and chakras to the power and loving wisdom of the Galactic Center. The Power of Shakti includes the insights and experiences of both men and women as they activate the power of Shakti and shows that clearing all 18 pathways of the Shakti Circuit enables us to activate our sacred sexual self and find our soul mission.

PADMA AON PRAKASHA, a child prodigy who read the Bhagavad Gita at age 4 and the Koran and Bible by age 7, is an Initiate in Saivite Tantra, the Sama Veda, and the Tibetan Buddhist Lineage of Tsongkhapa and Maitreya. He teaches worldwide and has led initiatory pilgrimages to sacred sites in 15 countries since 1998. He lives in London.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book because I was looking for techniques to enhance and control Kundalini-Shakti. I give the book
2 stars because the book pretty much fails to help me to achieve this goal. I was misled by high marks of others
and comments that the book is meant for both men and women (Divine Woman should basically mean female energy, not
necessarily women).

First, the book is pretty useless for men, as 200+ pages are devoted to praise womb, and the whole book talks
about women. The author repeats in different ways how womb is powerful, how it is connected to the Moon, Galactic
Centre etc., how all women are connected and how great it is to have a "good" womb and how awful it is to have a
"bad" womb, and how you can become divine if you take good care of your womb (which you can do by going to the
workshop or retreat). This stuff goes on and on and on. There is a mix of emotional, social and metaphysical
discussions that can be found everywhere and which can easily fill up another 2000+ pages.

So what about the promised stuff: 18 pathways to ignite the Shakti? Well, there are a few exercises here and
there. The author talks about 7 gates and gives exercises to open them (pages 115-118).
Here are 2 examples. To open "the Sixth Gate: Visualize a cross within a vesica piscis. Relax, and be silent to
whatever arises within you". To open "the Seventh Gate: Surrender into eternal womb". You decide if such
exercises would be helpful to you.

Totally there are no more than 8-10 pages with exercises. The whole book reads as an introduction and when it
gets interesting the author refers the reader to his workshop /retreat without explaining any technique.

There are just a couple of drawings in the book.

Format: Paperback
Quite simply : THIS BOOK ROCKS because it has the POWER to forever change how we move through Life and relationship in an incredibly REAL and grounded manner.

Shakti is a Hindu term for the Juice of Life, but I discovered that there's nothing innately Hindu about this Universal Loving Power that sustains and informs and creates ALL life. And if you're alive in a body, this where it at, folks!

I found it incredibly exciting to read because I felt that this is material that the very deepest aspects of my soul has been waiting to remember, to comprehend and to begin living, for a long time. I found this to be very practical, grounded, hands-on kind of information. I found many powerful exercises I was able to do on my own.

This book returns knowledge, wisdom and techniques that have been lost and forgotten to Humanity for thousands and thousands of years. It was lost to us, because of it's very power. That it has returned to us at this time, is in itself an auspicious sign that we are ready and mature enough to step fully into our Humanity in order to help this ailing world and all of it's beings. Once awakened, Shakti brings the Power to create, the Love that impassions and the Wisdom that reveals.

Padma Prakasha, has done a careful and diligent task indeed of bringing this back for us.

Format: Paperback
Having read the book and attended one of the Power of Shakti workshop/intensives, my life has radically changed. Highly recommended for men and women to discover the secret of the universe within. I wrote a piece about it, after attending the workshop which might enlighten the reader as to the powerful processes that take place when we access this hidden and secreted away part of our true nature and being.

Go To Your Womb!

Stella Fairbairn journeys to the Universe within with the Power of Shakti Intensive, Ireland. Transformational wisdom designed for both women and men to access and enhance the inner power of the Divine.

On entering the Gyreum in Sligo it feels like entering an eco-lodge type space ship. It is nestled in the undergrowth of the Irish Sligo countryside near Lough Arrow and is situated directly on the cross axis of two very powerful ley lines. One of the lines runs in from the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt and the other from Macchu Piccu in Peru. With the Gyreum's very bohemian earthy look and slightly subterranean feel, I made my way across the massive circular womblike interior with an open mind. Padma Aon Prakasha is the man who has brought this very feminine energy and teachings back from the ancient grave and is a powerfully loving presence, and to be in his company is to be awash with unconditional love, compassion and truth.

Not knowing much about what I was about to embark upon, some of the lines in the flyer had attracted me, such as: "Now we are ready to remember and activate the greatest secret women hold" and "A blend of alchemical breath, sacred sound, and divine light: the master elements of creation" and also "Meeting your Shadow. Understanding and embracing the shadow leads to your greatest empowerment.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very unique book, offering spiritual teachings and techniques related to the feminine womb energy center, corresponding to the 2nd/sacral chakra in many chakra mappings. These teachings are drawn from traditional Tantra teachings - there are Tantra teachings in both Tibetan Buddhist and Hindu yogic traditions. However, in this book they are offered directly to the reader, outside of a lineage or initiation hierarchy, as they would normally be as taught in those traditions. I have studied these traditions, and as far as I know, this is the first book to offer these teachings in this depth in a book such as this. The author felt that it was time for this material to be made available, and that doing so is part of a larger spiritual shift going on in the world (which personally I agree with.)

The teachings draw on chakra meditation, mantra and visualization work, other inner energy work, and sacred sexuality. Many of the latter teachings are meant to be practiced with a sexual partner, but there is also plenty of material here that does not require that. Although above I said this work is accessible, I meant compared to the traditional Tantric yogic and Buddhist texts I have read, which are highly symbolic and hard to follow without formal instruction. I think this book would still be a bit tough for someone to follow who had never been exposed to any energy work or mappings at all, i.e. chakras, mantra work, etc.

The philosophical framework and language of this book would probably be classified 'new age', so that may not appeal to some people. But I highly recommend getting over that, because I think this book has a lot to offer, and has a powerful empowerment behind it too.

For those interesting in chakras, energy work of any type, and/or feminine spirituality, I highly recommend!
