"Kundalini Vidya": The best in the west...
"Kundalini Vidya: The Science of Spiritual Transformation" has been touted by some kundalini yogis as one of the best books out there, at least in English, on the process of spiritual development. By Joan Shivarpita Harrigan, PhD, who trained under a guru in India, it goes into great depth about the chakra system, nadis, vayus, gunas, the signs of a kundalini awakening, how to cope, the various types of risings... there's a lot to chew on in here. Don't let the coil bound, homemade look of this book put you off, this is an indispensable guide for the active kundalite seeking to understand things better.
I suspect kundalini somehow plays a factor in my growth, though I am not at a level to truly understand it at this point, only that I know certain chakras are definitely open, and I have many of these signs this book describes. Certainly the spiritual negativity I have experienced has confused my process, but I suppose there's a greater meaning to the chaos, that I will come to understand at some point down the road. Maybe it's karmic? Perhaps once I defeat it my karma will be much nicer. lol
If you want to order a book off of Amazon about the kundalini process, make it this one. It's about $25, it has tons of knowledge and it's a great reference you'll want to return to time and time again. The problem with most books out there about chakras and stuff is that they tend to simplify the idea of them through a New Age lens... this one definitely isn't one of those books. Great read!
