Publisher Comments:

The most comprehensive guide to chakra meditation and the ancient spiritual science of layayoga ever created.andnbsp; andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andbull; One of the great works on yoga, available for the first time in the United States. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;andbull; Full-color plates illustrate each chakra.andnbsp; andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;With the growing interest in energy medicine in the West, the ancient Hindu tradition of chakra meditation has become increasingly important to both healers and spiritual seekers. While new to us, the chakras have long been studied in the East, with the spiritual science of layayoga having the profoundest knowledge of these energy centers.

Its detailed, illustrated look at each of the chakras and the various meditations and mantras that go with them makes it a must for serious students of yoga.andnbsp;
