What image do you conjure up when you think of ‘awakening’? Who comes to your mind when you think of ‘enlightenment’?Tantra opens up our minds to the possibility of intellectual existence beyond the God level (Ancient Indian mythology is full of humans cavorting with Gods). And Kundalini Tantra does more: it opens up levels of consciousness several degrees beyond God. It gives us techniques to exercise our imagination and leads us to heaven within ourselves.The quest for higher consciousness is manifested through the physical body (bigger, better and beautiful) or the subtle body (smarter, kinder and spiritual). Tantra Yoga highlights practices to achieve this bliss. Awakening is possible and enlightenment is available to all who seek it.

The premise of Awakening to the Spirit Within is that all beings are connected by a spiritual energy which forms the essence of who they truly are. Eight paths, which facilitate an awakening to this essence, are explored: Native American Spirituality, Taoism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Kabbalah, Jesus and the Christ Within, Sufism, and The New Thought Movement. Practice exercises and references are also included. This book highlights some of the unique gifts which various spiritual traditions have to offer our world. In addition, it explores the mystical threads of connection which underlie them. Like the title suggests, it also gives ways of listening to guidance from within. The author includes messages from her own inner guidance in an effort to illustrate how this may occur. Her openness provides more warmth and intimacy than is usually found in such a book. In these uncertain times, there has been an upsurge of interest in books related to spirituality, religion, and mysticism. People are looking for ways to heal, rather than destroy, our planet. That is why this book, and others like it, are so timely and important in moving us closer to our shared goal of creating a more peaceful and harmonious world.

Many of us long to connect with something greater than ourselves to experience the sacred in our daily lives, and to enhance our sense of spiritual enlightenment - yet often we don't know where to begin. Now, in Awakening to the Sacred, Lama Surya Das integrates essential Buddhist practices with a variety of other spiritual philosophies, wisdoms and traditions to show how we can create a personalized spiritual practice based on our own individual beliefs, aspirations and needs. Here, as he examines common themes that lie at the heart of any spiritual path, including faith, doubt, love and compassion - and explores rituals such as prayer, yoga and meditation - he provides practical advice on how we can nurture our inner spirit every day of our lives. With his unique and accessible approach, Surya Das emphasizes that we are all, by nature, spiritual beings and that our lives are naturally filled with sacred moments. Awakening to the Sacred illuminates the natural meditations already present in daily life, and shows how we can use them to awaken our hearts and minds, and progress towards inner peace, happiness and enlightenment.

This book integrates psychological, spiritual and pragmatic approaches to the mastery of life. It focuses on relationship, leadership and self-esteem. We know that what motivates our thoughts, feelings, words and actions is less than 10% at the level of the conscious mind. The driving forces in our lives do not exist at the surface of our minds, where we make our every day, 'conscious' decisions. What truly moves us lies buried deep within and we must become familiar with that shadowy underworld from where our real choices and actions are being motivated. In order to get into our personal 'underworld', where the real work must be done, we must go far beyond intellectualism, positive thinking, and 're-programming'. We have found that the practices of yoga, ranging from breathwork and postures to meditation and self-enquiry, are the most effective means of diving deep within the unconscious. As we follow the paths of yoga to the depths of the ocean of our own existence, we inevitably encounter the many shadowy forms of the unconscious lurking below the surface. It is by encountering, embracing and then releasing these submerged thought-forms and undigested feelings and sensations, that we will ultimately attain our 'pearl of great price', Self-realization. This book emphasizes the use of the breath as a potent means for exploring and clearing the unconscious. When integrated with an ability to recognize and understand how our negative, self-defeating 'patterns' operate, progress can be remarkably rapid and enduring. Finally, particular attention is given to the use of 'action' as a means to self-knowledge, self-healing and self-transformation. It is in the heat of action that we actually discover how we are put together and identify where we are weak and where we are strong. Breaking through our resignation and stepping out onto the playing field of life is accomplished in the field of action, where leadership resides.
