Although some aspects of the ancient discipline of Yoga are currently familiar in the West, the real nature and purpose of' this profound science of the soul is still widely misunderstood. And in the East, where the discipline was born and reached its peak many centuries ago, much of the knowledge gained has since been lost.
Gopi Krishna, drawing upon his own experience of Higher Consciousness, has re-examined the discipline of Yoga and its psychosomatic lever Kundalini in the light of modern knowledge and presents for the first time a clear and comprehensive analysis of this amazing subject. Citing the real goal of Yoga and the most effective way to achieve it, he describes the biological and physiological aspects of the discipline, the rewards of a successful effort, and the tremendous significance true Yoga has for the continued survival and healthy evolution of the race.
The author explains that Yoga and kundalini are interchangeable terms, for there is no Yoga and no union of the individual with Cosmic Consciousness unless kundalini is activated. The whole matter boils down to this: the human brain, as the result of evolution, has now the capacity to exhibit another kind of consciousness which can know itself or, in other words become conscious of consciousness, look beyond Space and Time. What is more surprising, instead of arriving at a conclusion by reasoning, as every normal mind does, it can dive into an Ocean of Knowledge in which all that is knowable is known, and all the problems awaiting solutions are solved. From this ocean, droplets of fresh knowledge trickle down into normal consciousness, according to the degree of attunement with the brain, and it is these droplets of rare knowledge, not possible to recognize by empirical methods, which have always been honored as Revelation .
About the Author
Gopi Krishna was born in 1903, near the city of Srinagar, in the Jammu and Kashmir State in northern India. He spent his earlier years there and later, in Lahore, in the Punjab of British India. At the age of twenty, he returned to Kashmir and during the succeeding years he secured a post in the state government, married and raised a family. Later in his career, he became the leader of a social organization that was devoted to helping the disadvantaged in his community.
At the age of 34, while meditating one morning, he experienced the sudden and forceful awakening of Kundalini, which he described in full detail years later in his autobiography, KundaliniThe Evolutionary Energy in Man. From that day, till the end of his life, the energy was fully active in his body and eventually brought about a radical, permanent transformation of his perceptive faculties.
Gopi Krishnas last 25 years were devoted to bringing the attention of the world to this phenomenon. His seventeen published books, innumerable articles, discourses and speeches have presented a clear and concise account of the Kundalini process, a theory for its explanation and the role it plays in the evolution of both the individual consciousness and of the race as a whole.
His experiences led him to hypothesize that there is a biological mechanism in the human body which is responsible for creativity, genius, psychic abilities, religious and mystical experiences, as well as some aberrant mental states. He asserted that this mechanism is responsible for the evolution of mankind and that it is ignorance of the working of this process which is at the root of the critical situation of the world today.
Gopi Krishna called for a full scientific investigation of his hypothesis and believed that the results of such an objective analysis would give mankind the knowledge and understanding necessary to progress in peace and harmony.
