This book is dedicated to those honest and relentless yoga practitioners who are searching for the master-key to unlock the door to the abode of maha kundalini. Little has ever been written on the ancient practice of bandha, which is regarded as an important aspect of both hatha and kundalini yogas. Moola Bandha is a simple yet dynamic practice with profound physical, mental and spiritual benefits for the practitioner.
The text focuses on the theory and practice of bandha. The physical, pranic and psychotherapeutic effects are explored, including the relationship between moola bandha and acupuncture. A concise practical section includes both preliminary practices and advanced techniques to enable the practitioner to pursue this sadhana to the utmost, thus awakening the primal energy within. Includes the drawings and diagrams.
About the Author:
The Author realizing the limitations of drugs and traditional psychotherapy to cure the psychiatric and psychologically disturbed patients pursued his search for a more practical and effective method to reintegrate the mind and the body, moving through the normal healing techniques of acupunctrue, naturotherapy, massage and herbalism and culminating in the discovery of yoga. Under the guidance of Swami Satyanananda Saraswati, he gained profound insight into the mechanics of the mind, depression and neurosis as well as the yogic technique to alleviate much of the suffering.
Moola bandha emerged as one of the main componenets of Swamiji's teachings, prompting Swami Buddhananda Saraswati to an intensive theoretical and practical study. The outcome of this search and it's implications for modern man are to be found in this book.
