5.0 out of 5 stars a way to light Nov. 14 2005
I first picked up Kundalini Yoga for the West before teaching a yoga class at a Rad'a studio in Montreal. Opening the book's back jacket, I found the author staring expressively at me in sepia-tones. It appeared even from that photo that Swami Sivananda Radha -- the woman that inspired the studio I was sitting in, ascent, (Canada's only yoga magazine), and the Yasodhara Ashram in British Columbia - had a great deal to teach me about the Light. Light made an aura out of her white hair. Light bathed her cheeks raised by a smile. Light sparked in her dark intelligent eyes. Who better to learn about the Light then from someone that aspired passionately for in her own life? After reading his book I believe that taken to action, Swami Radha's teachings on Kundalini have the power to lead me toward greater awareness, increased self-knowledge, clearer perception, and my highest potential. She offers a practical manual filled with advice, explanations, exercises, psychology, philosophy and a down-to-earth approach to spirituality that goes beyond the mechanics. "The natural life rhythm [of our lives]," she writes, "simply cannot absorb the impact of news, television and urban living, combined with the many power struggles that are outside the domain of an individual's control." Swami Radha offers an alternative to submitting those aspects of life that drive us away from my inner being. She reminds me that we are on this planet ultimately to evolve -- not through technology, modern conceptions of progress or material acquisition but though expanding and refining our consciousness. She puts it wisely; "Evolution for humans must now refer to the evolution of consciousness, and Kundalini offers a blueprint of that vast mine to be tapped." With pictures and poetry, familiar language and great wisdom, Swami Radha demystified the esoteric practice of Kundalin for me. In the end this book a pleasure to read and even more of a pleasure to put into practice!

5.0 out of 5 stars Kundalini Yoga for the West Aug. 6 2011
From a novice aspirant to a teaching Swami, this extraordinary text will provide guidance on how to delve inside and examine your thoughts and actions. The book is a comprehensive tool which is not intended to be read like a novel, but explored, meditated upon, and gradually with the help of the exercises, opens your own understanding of who you are and who you can choose to be.

Swami Sivananda Radha has compiled the ancient quests of the Cakra system and meditations which will assist a willing, attentive learner in their path of self-discovery and awareness. The book also includes useful colour plates of the Cakras. This is a work to be studied and used, re-read and dipped into to update your unique level of consciousness.

5.0 out of 5 stars So much wisdom and truth Aug. 29 2010
This is an excellent book! I use it as a reference, work book. I personally found that this book is a lot to read from start to finish. I pick a Chakra (cakra) , or chapter and read that, and reflect on what she has written. It can feel like a lot to absorb for a beginner... but it gets easier, clearer with time.

This book is FULL of wisdom and so much great insight.

5.0 out of 5 stars a book for a lifetime May 12 2006
By B. Vedski - Published on Amazon.com
Kundalini Yoga for the West is one of the most practical and comprehensive books on Kundalini that I have come across. Swami Sivananda Radha studied with Swami Sivananda of Rishikesh, India in the 50's and was initiated by him into the sacred order of Sanyas. She returned to Canada, studied and practiced Kundalini Yoga for many years, and tirelessly explored the extensive texts of Sir John Woodroffe (Arthur Avalon).

What i liked about this book is that it goes beyond an english translation of ancient texts, it actually gives tools, exercises and practices to explore and expand your mind that are based on Swami Radha's personal experience. It's not just theoretical. I have been through this book many times, and know that it will continue to give me insights for years to come. It's a guide, a map, a companion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eastern Intuitive practices May 12 2006
By Seveda James - Published on Amazon.com
This book is true to its ancient origins, yet accessible to the sincere Western aspirant. Swami Radha's 'Kundalini for the West,' provides yogic exercises to access the ancient evolutionary cakra system of Kundalini. Kundalini yoga in western culture has grown to mean many things. In 'Kundalini for the West,' Swami Radha provides layers of access to work with each cakra. Each cakra is given its own series of practices: mantra, breath practices, and questions of self-reflection/life reflection, which are used to glean insight into one's inner life. There is no limit to the experiential possibilities offered through the practices detailed in this book.
