Very Highly Recommended!, February 20, 2003
Reviewer: Chinese Taoist (see more about me at from Detroit, Michigan United States
Layayoga is one of the four great systems of yoga, the other three being mantrayoga, hathayoga, and rajayoga, which together comprise the four forms of mahayoga. At the heart of Tantra is Kundaliniyoga, and at the core of Kundaliniyoga is Layayoga. Among its central tenets is the notion that the body is not, as taught by more ascetical schools, an obstacle on the path to enlightenment. Rather, it is a manifestation of the ultimate Reality and hence must be fully integrated into one's spiritual aspirations.

This work focuses on the esoteric process by which the ordinary human body is transmuted into a divine body, wherein every cell is suffused with consciousness and endowed with extraordinary capacities. "Laya" in fact refers to the absorption of the elements constituting the body, a process which occurs when the kundalini power rises from the chakra at the base of the spine and ascends toward the chakra at the crown of the head.

Drawing from over 280 Sanskrit texts, the author has achieved a comprehensive and academically rigorous presentation based on actual yogic experimentation and realization, which as such can help to address misconceptions common in Westernized presentations on Kundaliniyoga.

Ultimate Reference, March 27, 2001
Reviewer: thebalrog99 (see more about me at from WA USA
As it says in the title this is the definitive guide on the yogic science of Kundalini and the chakras. This science which is most often referred to as Laya yoga, although Laya Yoga is not really recognized as a form of yoga in the sense that it combines information taken from Hatha and Tantric texts. This presents a problem for anyone wishing to focus their yogic studies on Kundalini and the Chakras because Hatha Yoga and Tantra Yoga or very large schools of yoga and also somewhat different. This book is the best answer to that problem that has been published to date. Although as you may have read in other reviews it is very dry and dense, you also sometime get the feeling of disorganization but this is only because the material is so relentlessly complete. Although the first time you read this book you may not get alot out of it, it is invaluable as a resource tool for the study of Layayoga there simply isn't enough good information out there that is presented in the "old ways" or eastern yogi's.

Bottom line if your interested in this line study this book is a must buy.

Reader Review
The best work on Kundalini in English, August 21, 1998
Reviewer: (Riley Jackson) from Schaumburg near Chicago, Illinois
This work will bring the reader into the power of Devatma Shakti Kundalini just by reading and pondering the text. Old feelings will find a home in the transformation from experience to understanding as the book flows forward. Gentle delight is the mark of a true Tantric text and this book, although strange and difficult at times, is pure de-light. If you want to know about Chakras and such, this is a classic text by one who really knows. Old and grand, this is a favorite treasure of mine and one I give away regularly to friends who must have more. Lam-to-Aum... Riley Jackson
