Publisher's Summary

You don't have to be a monk to enter the ultimate realm of happiness!

Yes, it's true.   

In his book Kundalini - An Untold Story, Himalayan ascetic Om Swami unveils the enigmatic story of kundalini, the formless aspect of the Goddess, or your primordial energy.   

With workable steps for awakening this energy source, the author explains the esoteric and practical meaning of kundalini and the seven chakras in his usual insightful and humorous style. These riveting anecdotes are based on his personal experience gained from years of intense meditation.   

Take an awe-inspiring journey -- something no other book on kundalini can offer - from the origins of kundalini all the way to Swami's own sadhana in the modern age.

Great intro to Kundalini.

This is a great introduction to Kundalini and how to go about meditating on the Kundalini energy. It is well narrated (if you ignore the badly mispronounced Sanskrit words), provides the mythological background and practical pointers to practitioners.

I however felt a little disappointed by a few things:
1. The suggested timelines - meditate for 2 hours a day for a year on each Chakra before moving on to the next one, while you stick to a strictly vegetarian diet and lay off the sauce. I personally know people who have been able to experience unusual experiences in much shorter durations.
2. Make it seem harder - The author tries to deliberately make it seem "inaccessible" to normal folks by repeatedly quoting how some great sage meditated for thousands of years before he had an awakening. He also disses all new-agers and healers up front, somehow insinuating that he's the only one with the right knowledge.
3. Underwhelming benefits - The author sells you the power of Kundalini by quoting outlandish mythological stories of walking into different dimensions, but cites simplistic things such as "clarity of mind" as the benefits of years of meditation. It makes you wonder if it's really all worth it.

Usual Bull, doesn't make any sense.

if you can't tell things ina way that they can be understood it simply means you yourself have not understood it. That is the simple truth higher than any other truth any hypocrite tries to teach you.

infact the author gives a hard sell of reverse psychology by saying that if you are looking for something that makes sense then one should look elsewhere and that is what I am going to follow as his only sensible teaching found in this book.

Avoid this book!

It’s just a book which motivates you to do Sadhna. No real information is given. Just telling me that it’s colour or what it’s called doesn’t help. It’s just jargon . Avoid.

seed syllables of Chakra NOT READ PROPERLY.

Swami Ji did a great job with this book by making common man available the knowledge of kundalini. I feel whatever you wrote in this book is true. Because such a state can only be attained by intense meditation.
He explain the background and the back stories of every relevant things.
I already have the physical copy of this book.
I BROUGHT THE AUDIO BOOK ONLY FOR THE PURPOSE OF HOW TO PRONOUNCE THE SEED SYLLABLE CORRECTLY.
BUT THE NARRATOR HAS DONE A OKAY/NORMAL JOB IN NARRATING THIS GREAT BOOK. He was okay into brining Life into this Book.
HE JUST GOES ON SPEAKING LIKE A COMPUTER VOICE. NO EMOTION OR FEELINGS WHICH ARE REQUIRED AT SPECIFIC PLACES.


"THE NARRATOR DOES TERRIBLE AT NARRATING THE SEED SYLLABUS OF CHAKRA"


SO IF YOU GUYS ARE BUYING this audiobook please be aware of it. Improper READING of seed syllabus of chakra.

If we keep aside narration. I would anyday give this book 110/100.

PLEASE LISTEN SOME PARTS OF THIS BOOK AT 0.9X SPEED.

I wish Amazon could have Hired OM SWAMIJI HIMSELF FOR NARRATING HIS GREAT BOOK.

Please Like this review if you agree with the same.

Did not like it

The author makes a classic mistake of pointing out that the vedic method doesn't see communion of atma and parmatama. He confuses vedic with bhakti and tries to glorify the tantra.
First the author says that he won't talk about deities and syllables of the chakra and his reading is itself filled with them...The chakra healers are way better than this book which are rebuked so decisively in the intro..
