    1. Hmmmm this book helped me a lot at a time I had opened a door, a pathway inside, that once opened I couldn't close. This book helped me realize I didn't have to fight it. For those not on that path this book will seem meaningless and very esoteric.


    2. "Little did I realize that from that day onwards I was never to be my old normal self again, that I had unwittingly and without preparation or even adequate knowledge of it roused to activity the most wonderful and stern power in man, that I had stepped unknowingly upon the key to the most guarded secret of the ancients, and that thenceforth for a long time I had to live suspended by a thread, swinging between life on the one hand and death on the other, between sanity and insanity, between ligh [...]


    3. Apparently, Kundalini energy can be present and active at birth. Those with this activated energy can live a life of hardship (pgs 58-59) from childhood until that time in life when by way of their many hardships they come to terms with life and embrace what they have been given. This included their gifts and talents. Yet they also recognize what they are given is not theirs, but to be used in the service of others. These two pages made the book worth while.


    4. This is the most astonishing tale of a spiritual journey written in the 20th century. Gopi Krishna relates his life story with honesty and humility, and is responsible for making the ancient Sanskrit and tantric system of Kundalini understandable to the modern world. Based on his own incredible experience, and the changes he went through both in body and mind, he is sure that the brain is still undergoing organic evolution and has untapped potentialities still waiting to be discovered. This make [...]


    5. Gopi Krishna's story is captivating. The psychological commentary see-saws between providing valuable insight into Gopi's transformation and boring you crazy until the primary narrative resumes.This text has been on my mind all week since I (finally) started it. I like the lack of adherence to spiritual tradition; it lends the story an authentic feel. The horrors that accompany spiritual progress, we can call it tapasia if we want to use a $64 word, are described beautifully here. It's not all t [...]


    6. Experiences of a ordinary householder on having the kundalini suddenly awakened.Very clearly written - does not dwell much on concepts.Mostly covers his own experience as seen by him.



    7. This is the second book that I read on the subject of Kundalini Awakening, which is an account of the the personal experience of the author.I found it to be very helpful which also seemed to be clear, non-delusive and an honest confession compared to a couple of books by other authors.A passage from the book which I found to be true---"It was only now that I really began to recognise myself, the being who about a year before had sat in meditation, bent on invoking the supersensible,little knowin [...]


    8. wonderful autobiography of Gopi Krishna's experiences with meditation, energy and evolution. gives accounts of the good and bad effects both emotionally and physically, insights to humanity's potential and explanations for physical practices of yoga beyond better abs.


    9. Really interesting/inspiring. Gets a bit heavy at times but if you trudge through it you'll be happy you did. If you read this book with an open mind it could certainly change the course of your life. Required reading for anyone practicing meditation or Kundalini yoga.





    10. I give his book 3.5 stars. It was interesting but dragged on at times. If you dabble in yoga on the weekends and are wondering about the deeper aspects, you'll want to give this a read.Gopi Krishna was born in 1903 and his perspective on the changes and challenges to society are fascinating. This sage questions himself and his experiences. He vividly describes the long-lasting physical, emotional and spiritual effects, showing both the benefits and potential negatives and personal costs to his l [...]


    11. On the one hand, I'm grateful for Krishna's careful depiction of awakening kundalini because it confirms my own. On the other, I found his tale irritatingly isolated. Other than some Tantric texts, he offers no scriptural sources and no external authorities to corroborate his experience or contextualize kundalini's arousal in more general spiritual development. And this book is flabby with unnecessary rants. Nonetheless I'll keep this one on my shelves; it's an example of spiritual memoir as tes [...]


    12. Krishna's account of his own experience with the Kundalini, [after which he went on to write a number of excellent non-autobiographical books] which is arguably the same as the Christian Holy Spirit, is largely consistent with the description of higher or cosmic consciousness described by Bucke.


    13. Honestly, I don't understand all the favorable reviews. Very verbose, repetitive, and self-interested prose written like books in the early 1800s. It's incredible that it was written in the 1960s or 70s. Good to read the beginning but highly skimmable.


    14. The subject is important; the style, however seems ponderous. Also, I. don't believe that the radiance one sees everywhere as a result of Kundalini opening comes from me. I believe this radiance is the essence of everything. Still, there hasn't been enough written about this subject.


    15. 3.75 stars. Interesting but wordy and frequently veers away from telling his story to dwelling on his thoughts about what things might mean or what the government or scientists should do.


    16. OK I wrote most of this like two months ago, so for the most part I’ve forgotten where i was going…but I’ll see if I can patch it together if only to get it out the door.The story of how I got this book is worth telling. Mostly because I don’t even remember half of it:Somewhere during my devouring of various texts in grad school, I came across a reference to this book, and so used ’s “wish list” to make a note for myself of this. I used to just use it to keep lists of books that I [...]


    17. Gopi Krishna's account of his personal experience of spiritual transformation as a result of spontaneously awakening his kundalini life force is definitely worth reading. He describes how difficult and lonely his spiritual journey was without the guidance of a spiritual leader and his reluctance to share his experience with friends and family fearing social consequences.While interpreting his experience, Krishna drew wisdom from both ancient yogic accounts and modern science, theorizing, althoug [...]


    18. The author renders a fascinating first-hand account of his kundalini awakening. I detect great sincerity in his writing--it is interesting that he found the experience to be quite terrifying, especially since he had no guru or guide, and that he considered it to be more organic than other-worldly. One of his views that I admire greatly is that attachment is a positive thing--that has been a sticky issue for me with some Eastern philosophy. Ramakrishna, for example, told people to distance themse [...]


    19. “[]Uluit, încântat, mi-am întors privirea spre alte direcţii pentru a fi din nou fascinat de reflexul argintat ce transfigura toate lucrurile. Cu siguranţă, eram martorul unei faze noi a transformării mele. Lumina, pe care o observasem din toate părţile şi pe toate obiectele, nu emana din ele, ci trebuia să fie, fără nici o îndoială, proiecţia propriei mele luminozităţi interioare.”O lucrare ce nu doar că abundă de experienţe incredibile, ci şi de explicaţii, analize [...]


    20. This book was one I kept reading the first chapter to, feel inspired and then put down for another three months. This time I went for it and soldiered through. The subtle logic and unrutted way of explaining the finer points on how to simply- be a good person are incredible and I'm trying to incorporate more of this type of philosiphy ino my life. Being already consumed with ego this is difficult, but I recommend it to anyone who wants to feel and take advantage of a fresh start.


    21. borrowed from brendan. i found elements of this misogynistic and self-important. it was also very honest. but overall it read more like this guy's life than like a spiritual exploration. the jungian commentary appended to the book is interesting. eh.


    22. I wonder how you can explain this stuff, being a closet Athiest. Other than psychosomatic disorders, it is baffling to even concede there may be this immense energy source inside us. My instinct screams: bullshit


    23. An absolutely amazing book. It is felt by reading that it has been written by someone who has experienced in its depth. Reading it uplifted me and, together with some other things, helped me seeing the beauty in every person and being closer to God/Jagannatha.


    24. The in-depth description, chapter after chapter, of the melancholy experienced as a result of Mr. Gopi Krishna's experience with an unexpected kundalini awakening gets a little hard to follow after a while. Still, a helpful resource,


    25. don't spew, camalalang! he gave me a copy and the blonde is currently fully in control. i told you he is a pukey new ager! :pon finishing: eh. i think i would have really enjoyed this when i was 14.


    26. A powerful story told with clarity and humility, hugely informative and very moving. Also for me as a western reader, the commentary by James Hillman helped to build links with western psychology.
