To prove my point I would like to recommend other inspiring books such as the ''conversations with God series'' by Neale Donald Walsch which clearly states that the human body is designed to exist for eternity. That book also revels that our current physical, spiritual, intellectual and technological development is at its infancy compared to other civilizations in the universe.
There is a striking similarity between these books. M. Govindan has shown that Mahavatar Babaji and the other perfected beings are not myths. In the ''The Complete Conversations with God (Boxed Set)'' series, God has also revealed that a number of human beings had achieved immortality in the physical plane and He made a reference to Babaji as an example!
The main reason that this book as received some negative reviews is because the readers themselves do not believe in their own divinity. Didn't Jesus teach that we are all gods and the kingdom of heaven is within us?
I highly recommend this book for those who wish to improve themselves in their thoughts, words and deeds. This book shows that nothing is impossible to achieve.
The system of Kriya techniques of this lineage is different of the lineage of Lahiri Mahasaya. I have seen strong changes for better in the lives of people who practice it; it is designed to improve your life in all levels; the Saiva Siddhanta tradition doesn't run away from the world, but uses the gifts of Yoga to improve the society and the world (the Siddhas wrote a lot of works about different matters, including medicine and philosophy). These techniques are wonderful treasures, but only for those who are ready to practice them, they are not for faith fundamentalists looking for controversies, those who always think that there is only one way - their way. Saint Thomas Aquinus defined well the fundamentalist when he said, "I am afraid of the man of only one book!" (Most of the negative reviews here of this book were written by the same person!).
Yoga is an experience, not a faith. The Siddhas themselves were very critics against faiths; they offered the Kriya techniques as a pathway to direct experience. Their message and scientific approach to spirituality are completely alive today!
I believe I found it in the book Babaji & the 18 Siddhas. The author not only provides details of the lives and accomplishments of these masters of Yoga. He also grounds their existence into the historical and geographical context of ancient India. It helps us to connect more easily with this little known lineage of Yoga masters.
Finally the book is also very practical in giving us the great lines of the various techniques offered to achieve not only spiritual enlightenment but also physical immortality. Yes the promises seem too good to be true. Yet the author writes in a factual and knowing manner. While it remains for each of us to decide whether this is truth or not,no one who is serious in their search for enlightenment thru the Yoga way should be without this book.
