For thousands of years, the teachings of the Siddha masters lave been handed down from Guru to disciple in unbroken lin¬ age. Swami Muktananda, who passed away in 1982, was the forenost contemporary exponent of vis ancient line.

The Siddha Yoga Teachings. Imagine looking at the world you live in, and recognizing divinity in everything you see and everyone you meet.

In May 1982, Muktananda appointed two successors as joint leaders of the Siddha Yoga path, Swami Chidvilasananda and her younger brother, Swami Nityananda who later resigned and formed his own group. Muktananda died in October 1982 and is buried at Ganeshpuri, where the Gurudev Siddha Peeth ashram houses his samādhi shrine. In Gurus of Modern Yoga, Andrea Jain, in her chapter on Muktananda, quotes an anonymous source, who describes his moment of shaktipat, when he was 19 years old, conferred by Muktananda with a wand of peacock feathers in 1975

Before Swami Muktananda took Mahasamadhi in 1982, he wrote many books and established more than six . Swami Chidvilasananda became the sole head of the Siddha Yoga lineage and sole Guru of Siddha Yoga students.

Gurumayi Chidvilasananda (or Swami Chidvilasananda), born as Malti Shetty, is the current spiritual head of the Siddha Yoga path. She is formally known as Swami Chidvilasananda or more informally as Gurumayi (the Sanskrit word translates to "immersed in the Guru"). The Siddha Yoga lineage (parampara) was established by Bhagawan Nityananda, whose disciple and successor, Muktananda was Gurumayi's guru.

Essential for students who want to understand the lineage of Siddhas and the roots of Siddha Yoga meditation, this book introduces many of these great masters and comments on key teachings of Kashmir Shaivism and Vedanta.

You don't need any other book if you are a seeker. Muktansnda Swami wrote of the shavite and yogic traditions in a toyally comprehensible way. One might want to read another author from academia and get dry analysis on the sutra and agamas
Mutkananda's explanations are alive, heart felt from guru to seeker
  • Sataxe
Great product, reliable seller
  • I ℓ٥ﻻ ﻉ√٥υ
easy and straightforward to read...anyone interested in Kasmiri Shivaism should give this a go
  • Garr
It's too bad this book is out of print, although I bought it for a very reasonable price through Amazon's used book sellers. Do you want to know what Swami Muktananda knew? He is very clear in this book. It's the best book I own.
  • sunrise bird
I would recommend this book for those who have stepped on the Path and know what Kundalini is, from experience.
  • Global Progression
Hard to believe this jewel of spiritual teaching is no longer in print. Then again, only a few seekers can truly understand and harmonize with the direct teachings of Swami Muktananda. Sat Guru Nath Maharaj Ki Jai!!!

This important book is divided into 37 chapters, containing 414 groups of paragraphs. This enables the reader to easily go through each of the different points of the philosophy of the siddhas. Swami Muktananda also introduces the philosophy of Kashmir Shaivism (which is little understood in the west) in this priceless book.

The reason why I love this book is because the contents are easy to read and understand. Moreover, there is a comprehensive glossary and index at the back of the book. Readers who are unfamiliar in Sanskrit would find the glossary index invaluable.

I would recommend this book to those readers who have a deep interest in Siddha Yoga and who are followers of Swami Muktananda. Although this book is NOT an introduction to the basics of Siddha Yoga, the beginner reader would be able to understand the meaning (at least on an intellectual level) of Siddha Yoga and the philosophy behind it. However, it would prove to be beneficial to the reader if he/she practices meditation before reading each paragraph of this book. Only then will the reader have a deeper understanding on what the Swami is trying to reveal to the world through this simple yet complex philosophy of Siddha Yoga.
