He explains Kundalini Yoga in great detail, found in few books. This isnt one of those crap "New Age" books, that ignore religon. Contrary to Western thinking, Tantra is about Meeting god by raising the Kundalini(Serpent Power) to the Head, and not having great sex, as most books in western world about tantra seem to think so.
The great thing is the book has translations of 2 rare hindu books(which you dont have to read as Avalon explains everything), but are useful to students of Hinduism. He also gives postures of Hatha Yoga to go with these.
Excellent book, well recommended, though a bit heavy even for Hindus who know sanskrit.
For practical info, I recommend Kundalini Tantra by Swami Satyananda Saraswati.
The chakra system is discussed in detail and certainly not trivialised and oversimplified as in so many modern publications.
If you can grasp Avalon's introduction, by far the largest portion of the book, you will have a very sound knowledge of the Tantric approach to meditation, the chakras, the subtle body, mantra, bhakti, laya yoga and the theory underlying it all indeed.
Nearly a hundred years after its first appearance, this book remains unsurpassed in its field.

Haven't had a chance to read it yet but really looking forward to doing so - although obviously not a light read.Published 4 months ago by Amazon Customer
Totally lacking any genuine sanskrit verses. Everything is in English. WIth such, there is no way the authenticity of author's claim can be verified. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Adlerinternational
