Depth Over Time: Kundalini MahaYoga: A Path of Transformation and Liberation

Front Cover
AuthorHouse, 2010 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 316 pages
Depth Over Time offers a vision of the freedom and liberation available to anyone who is willing to make spiritual growth the primary focus of their life. Much more than just a discussion of philosophy, the book provides readers with the tools to undertake a profound spiritual transformation within themselves, to gain the direct realization that "God dwells within you, as yourself." Depth Over Time covers the most important aspects of the practice of Kundalini MahaYoga. Discussions include the topics of Grace and individual effort, our relationship with God, the wish to grow, the teacher-student relationship, selfless service, surrender, cultivating stillness, and the critical need to consciously choose spirituality, moment by moment. Throughout the book, Swami Khecaranatha reiterates that spiritual practice does not just happen during formal, closed-eye meditation. Swami Khecaranatha explains the philosophy and practices of this Tantric tradition in terms that Western students can readily understand, yet his message conveys the essence of the highest teachings of the ancient Kashmiri Shaivite tradition. He makes it clear that attaining liberation and living in Divine Presence is not just the purview of saints, but a real possibility for anyone willing to devote his or her life to the pursuit of unconditional freedom.

About the author (2010)

Swami Khecaranatha has been teaching Kundalini MahaYoga since 1972. With a mastery etched from decades of disciplined inner practice and selfless service, he is an authentic adept of Tantric Shaivism in the Shaktipat Lineage of Bhagavan Nityananda and Swami Rudrananda. Swami Khecaranatha was not born to privilege or in a spiritual environment, but to an American family in circumstances comparable to those of most of his readers. His own life has demonstrated that it is possible to live fully in the world while developing and maintaining one's conscious connection with the Divinity within. While living in an ashram for thirty years he also held several "real-world" jobs, including that of CEO of a multimillion-dollar consulting/publishing business. This personal experience has strengthened Swami Khecaranatha's conviction that there is no separation between spiritual life and life in the world. Based on the profound spiritual transformation he experienced in his own life through the practice of Kundalini Yoga and the grace of his teachers, Swami Khecaranatha offers inspirational and practical guidance that can change a reader's life as well. He communicates in language that is relevant to readers' daily lives, giving them specific tools to actualize the radical transformation of consciousness that is available by working in depth, over time.
