The hallmark of India was the power and profundity of her mind and the purity of her soul. Indian sages have already designed a perfect way to attain elevation of mind & move towards truth through a comprehensive system of Yoga. Yoga offers a methodology to understand our self better on all levels, including our physical well- being, the thought process, emotions & desires. The Yoga aspirant can bring out the best in his personality by creating unison in thought, speech and action in the most positive way. Staying young and potent throughout life is possible with Kundalini Yoga, an exotic science that uses the physical body to mobilize all the cosmic energies of the universe. The experience of meditation is so powerful & fulfilling that it helps to transcend the pains & sorrows of life. As we progress in Yoga, the heart expands to embrace all Creation, the ultimate state of love being the love for the cosmos.
The author has produced this masterful work with his unique blend of research, intelligence, skill & own experience. The book unfolds the fundamental esoteric & core principles of Yoga & Kundalini Tantra. It elaborates on the techniques of healing the inner system by practice of meditative postures, breath- regulation, purification of physical & inner bodies & energy channels including Sushumna activation, mastering the mental faculties (Chitta—shuddhi), invocation of the Patron Deity (Ishta-Deva), dissolving the Tattvas (Bhuta—shuddhi), recitation of Mantras, activation of energy centres (Chakras) & awakening the latent Kundalini (potential energy) at the Muladhara, the lowest centre in the spinal column.
The book is embellished with plenty of coloured and black 'n' white illustrations.

"If I were asked under what sky the human mind has most fully developed some of its choicest gifts, has most deeply pondered on the greatest problems of life, and has found solutions, I should point to India."
- Max Muller"For those who want to follow the path of Yoga towards peace 8: evolution, there are a few pre-requisites. We need a good health, a calm mind, sincerity 8: a burning desire to rise above human imperfections?
- Bhole Prabhu, Himalayan saint"Most people in the West 8: also many in India, confuse Yoga with Hathayoga, the system of bodily postures. But Yoga is primarily a spiritual discipline."
- Paramahansa Yogananda"When a human being learns to seek religion not in gods, but in his own potentials, then he will know that he is great, and, that within his greatness lies his happiness.”
- Swami Rama, Himalayan Yogi"On awakening, Kundalini, the potential energy lying dormant, penetrates through all the six centres of energy along the spinal cord to meet the Supreme Beloved at the Thousand- petalled Lotus at the top of the head.”
- Adi Shankaracharya, Saundaryalehri, 9"He, whose mind has been made pure by the practice of Yama, Niyama, 8: the like, learns from the mouth of his Guru the process which opens the way to the discovery of the great Liberation. He whose being is immersed in the Brahman rouses the Kundalini by Hum-kara."
- Purnananda, Shatchakra., 50"As the insect, by the power of concentration, becomes a bee, so does man become Brahman by dint of Samadhi."
- Kularnava Tantra"When the universe is seen correctly, it is atman and all bliss, but when it is seen incorrectly, it appears as the world, full of sufferings. He, whose mind has world-cognition, suffers, but to him whose mind has atman-cognition, the world is a garden of bliss."
- Sage Vasishtha, Yoga Vasishtha
The Healing Power of Yoga 8 Kundalini Tantra’, the Second in series of J. L. Gupta ’Chaitanya’s ’Tantra, Mantra, Yoga 8 Spirituality is, indeed a welcome publication. His First book in this series titled ’Tantra, Mantra, Yoga 8 Spiritual Bliss’ comprising twenty-one chapters has already created a genuine spiritual hunger in the minds of readers. I am confident that this volume will go a long way towards satisfying that hunger and paving the way for locating the real abode of Bliss underlying within the cardiac region of each individual mistaking himself or herself just as a gross body and mind complex.
