Product Description


Chakras, in Hindu metaphysical tradition and other belief systems, are centers of Pra a, life force, or vital energy. Chakras correspond to vital points in the physical body i.e. major plexuses of arteries, veins and nerves. Texts and teachings present different numbers of chakras. Their name derives from the Sanskrit word for "wheel" or "turning." The concept of chakra features in tantric and yogic traditions of Hinduism and Buddhism. "The Chakras" by C. W. Leadbeater was first published in 1927 and to this day continues to be the fundamental reference work on chakras for a Western readership. Of special note is the inclusion of a section of color photographs. Now made available to a whole new generation of appreciative readers, this Quest Books edition is enhanced with an informative foreword by Anodea Judith and features annotations by Kurt Leland. Also available in a Kindle edition ($10.59), this 180 page paperback compendium is highly recommended for both personal reading lists and academic library Metaphysical Studies reference collections. --The Midwest Book Review, June 2013

..".this republished volume adds historic depth to a spiritual practice that many people are only now discovering." --Beth Breau, "ForeWord Reviews

"This book is a manifestation of the subtle energies of the chakras. C. W. Leadbeater began that journey as a trailblazer for the rest of us. "The Chakras" is his treatise, an important work that shines like a beacon, letting us know how much more there is to see and learn in the subtle world."
--Anodea Judith, PhD
, author of "Wheels of Life" and "Eastern Body-Western Mind," "www.SacredCenters.com

His worldwide lectures presented a new viewpoint to thousands of people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for students of philosophy and metaphysics 8 Mar. 2015
By Christopher Licata - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great book for students of philosophy and metaphysics. The style is a little pendantic since it was written in the late 20's but, it is a wonderful primer for those looking into higher states of being and the construction of the spiritual self.

1.0 out of 5 stars Leadbeater on LSD 2 Jan. 2014
By Lawrence W. Nelson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Utter, utter nonsense! I bought this book because it is supposed to be a great description of Chakras. I'm not sure I even believe in Chakras, but since there is such a plethora of reference to them in Yoga and Buddhist writings, I wanted to see what it is all about. This book won't help! Nothing in it makes sense. Nothing in it is believable. Nothing in it helps understand what Chakras are (or aren't). The discouraging part is, this may be the best out there.
