Product description


To me the chakras have always been one of the mystical aspects of Yoga; even after more than 20 years of Yoga practise. This book explains and effectively de-mystifies it. Why? Because the author not only shares the theories of the Chakras but also tries to substantiate it with emperical evidence - both his own as well as experimental. Apart from explaining the different energy centers (Chakras) in the body, a series of asanas and techniques are outlined to awaken each of them. The best part of the book is the personal experience of the author. In this he explains how each of his chakras were awakened and what impact it had in his life. This (and my own experience of awakening of 2 of the centres) helped me believe in the existence of the chakras. --By Ash Aragam on May 29, 2003

If you read this book cover to cover, you may be disappointed. When reading this book, it is imperative to keep in mind that this book best functions as a reference manual for all things Chakra related. A glance at the table of contents reveals that the book bounces about quite eclectically. It begins as a technical manual of yogic cultivation as per the Yoga Sutra. Here Motoyama presents which Asanas, Pranayama, Bandhas and Mudras are appropriate for awakening which Chakra. This very much reads like an exercise book. It then changes tone quite a bit and looks into Vedic reference to the Chakras along with detailed depictions of the location and function of the Nadis. This is followed by a summarized explanation of two modern insightful practitioners; Swami Satyananda and C. W. Leadbeater. This is concluded with the personal experiences of Motoyama concerning when and how he opened his various Chakras. So, if you think you'll be able to read this beginning to end and obtain one concise view of the Chakras, you'll be sadly disappointed. However, if you're looking for an inclusive manual for general understanding, advice for yogic practice and a general reference, this book delivers --By Ed on July 15, 2008

This book represents a monumental effort to review and correlate much of the accumulated knowledge of the subtle energy systems...Such a book could only be written by a person who has had the life-long personal experiences which Dr. Motoyama so generous shares with the reader. These experiences provide step-by-step illustration of unfolding and expanding consciousness. The book is necessary reading for all serious students of the subject of consciousness. --George W. Meek
