Description: New York, Dover. 1974. Soft cover. Good.l 529 pp. With index of words. Woodroffe's The Serpent Power - The Secrets of Tantric and Shaktic Yoga, is a source for many modern Western adaptations of Kundalini yoga practice. It is a philosophically sophisticated commentary on, and translation of, the Satcakra-nirupana ("Description of and Investigation into the Six Bodily Centres") of Purnananda (dated c.AD 1550) and the Paduka-Pancaka ("Five-fold Footstool of the Guru"). The term "Serpent Power" refers to the kundalini, an energy said to be released within an individual by meditation techniques. ( Source: Wikipedia) With some vague underlinings with pencil. Top of the bookblock shows some foxing.
