The Serpent Power

By Arthur Avalon, also known as Sir John George Woodroffe (1865–1936):

500 Pages | First published by Luzac & Co in 1918, this fascimile edition has been carefully scanned and reprinted in the traditional manner | Softcover | The Lost Library, Glastonbury | ISBN: 9781906621230.

The Serpent Power comprises translations and commentary on two ancient Sanskrit texts:

  1. De ṣaṭ-cakra nirūpaṇa (Description of and Investigation into the Six Bodily Centres).
  2. De pādukā-pañcaka (Fivefold Footstool of the Guru).

In addition to practical yoga instruction, Avalon gives a detailed explanation of the chakra system and writes with such clarity and elegance on the often misunderstood topics of meditation and mantra.

From Chapter 1: ‘The Six Centres and the Serpent Power’ (p. 2):

” This (kuṇḍalinī) Yoga is effected by a process technically known as ṣaṭ-cakra-bheda, or piercing of the Six Centres (cakra) or Lotuses (padma) of the body (which the work describes) by the agency of kuṇḍalinī-śakti, which, in order to give it an English name, I have here called the Serpent Power. Kuṇḍala means coiled. The Power is the Goddess (devī) Kuṇḍalinī, or that which is coiled; for Her form is that of a coiled and sleeping serpent in the lowest bodily centre, at the base of the spinal column, until by the means described She is aroused in that Yoga, which is named after Her. Kuṇḍalinī is the Divine Cosmic Energy in bodies. “

Rainbow Body – A History of the Western Chakra System from Blavatsky to Brennan

By Kurt Leland.

516 Pages | Published in 2016 | Softcover | Ibis Press /  NICHOLAS HAYS, Inc., Lake Worth | ISBN: 9780892542192.

Scores of books have been written on the chakras – the psycho-energetic centers distributed along the spine, perceived clairvoyantly as wheels of light. Based on the teachings of Indian Tantra, the chakras have been used for centuries as focal points for healing, meditation, and achieving a gamut of physical. emotional, and spiritual benefits – from improved health to ultimate enlightenment.

Contemporary yoga teachers, energy healers, psychics, and self-help devotees think of the chakra system as thousands of years old. Yet the most common version in use in the West today came together as recently as 1977, the result of an unintentional, century-long collaboration between esotericists, clairvoyants, scholars of Indian philosophy, mythologists, psychologists, yogis, and energy healers.

Never before has the story been told of how the Western chakra system developed from its roots in Indian tantra, through Blavatsky to Leadbeater, Steiner to Alice Bailey, Jung to Joseph Campbell, Ramakrishna to Aurobindo, and Esalen to Shirley MacLaine and Barbara Brennan.

Leland has written on astral projection, near-death experiences, and the transcendent possibilities of music. He is a National Lecturer for the Theosophical Society America, and a classical musician and composer. He maintains a consulting and teaching practice called ‘Spiritual Orienteering’.

De Chakra’s

By Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1934).

126 Pagina’s | Eerste druk 1931, zevende druk 2007 | Softcover | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland | ISBN: 9789061750741.

Dit is de Nederlandse vertaling van het Engels origineel: The Chakras – The Original Monograph based on Clairvoyant Investigations | First edition 1927, 15th reprint 2006 | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar. | ISBN: 8170590582.

De Chakra’s is gebaseerd op zeer zorgvuldige helderziende waarnemingen van het zogenaamde etherische of levenslichaam dat het fysieke lichaam van de mens omhult. Het legt verband met Indiase geschriften waarin beschrijvingen van deze centra voorkomen. Bovendien bevat het een aantal unieke kleurenillustraties van de chakra’s, die op aanwijzing van de helderziende auteur zijn samengesteld.

Sinds dit werk in 1927 voor het eerst verscheen is het in vele landen een bestseller geworden. Deze editie is geheel herzien en opnieuw vormgegeven. C.W. Leadbeater was een bekend theosofisch auteur, die in zijn vele boeken beschrijvingen gaf van zijn eigen helderziende waarnemingen.

Afkomstig van bladzijde 17:

” De chakra’s of krachtcentra zijn verbindingspunten, waardoor een kracht van het ene voertuig of lichaam van de mens naar het andere stroomt. Ieder, die maar een geringe graad van helderziendheid bezit kan ze gemakkelijk in het etherisch dubbel zien, waar zij zich vertonen als op schotels gelijkende inzinkingen of draaikolken aan de oppervlakte. Wanneer zij nog volkomen onontwikkeld zijn, lijken zij op cirkeltjes van ongeveer vijf centimeter middellijn, die bij de gewone mens dof lichten; wanneer zij echter zijn opgewekt en belevendigd zijn, ziet men ze als vlammende, flonkerende draaikolken, die zeer in grootte zijn toegenomen en op kleine zonnen lijken. “

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Dit boek is wereldwijd het best verkochte theosofische werk van de afgelopen eeuw. Leadbeater werkte voor het eerst een begrijpelijke terminologie uit over de chakra’s – al het daarop volgende werk is op zijn pionierswerk gebaseerd. Het boek bevat een aantal unieke kleurenillustraties van de chakra’s, die op aanwijzing van de helderziende auteur zijn samengesteld. De belangstelling voor oosterse filosofie is nog steeds groeiende. De hierin voorkomende visie op de mens is voor velen een welkom alternatief voor het materialistische mensbeeld. Vooral over de innerlijke opbouw van de mens is in de oosterse filosofie veel bekend. Tot de meest aansprekende onderwerpen op dit gebied behoren de chakra’s of energiecentra in de mens, die van groot belang zijn voor zowel zijn lichamelijke gezondheid als zijn geestelijk evenwicht.

The Chakras – The Original Monograph based on Clairvoyant Investigations

By Charles W. Leadbeater (1854 – 1934).

132 Pages | First edition 1927, 15th reprint 2006 | Hardcover with illustrations | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170590582.

See also the Dutch translation: De Chakra’sEerste druk 1931, zevende druk 2007 | Softcover, geïllustreerd | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland | ISBN: 9789061750741.

According to the teachings of the Hindu and other Mystic Schools there are subtle organs in man’s superphysical bodies, which channel psychic energies and vital forces, and serve as a link between the physical, psychic and superphysical states of consciousness. These centres are called Chakras, a Sanskrit term (cakram) meaning wheels or discs. The chakras, which have been likened to flowers with many petals, have been seen and described by clairvoyant investigators as wheel-like vortices, which appear in vivid colours like blazing, coruscating whirlpools.

Charles W. Leadbeater describes his research into the nature and functions of the chakras in this book, which was first published in 1927. It has since been through several printings and has become a classic in its field. The work is illustrated by ten colour plates and nine drawings.

The Chakras And The Human Energy Fields

By Shafica Karagulla, M.D (1914  – ca. 1986) and Dora van Gelder Kunz (1904 – 1999).

243 Pages | A Quest Original, first edition 1989 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 9780835606417.

THE ENERGY FIELDS ARE THE KEY TO HEALTH.

Shafica Karakulla, specialist in neuropsychiatry, and Dora van Gelder Kunz, gifted clairvoyant and healer, present experimental evidence that illness can be seen in the subtle energy fields of the body. Fascinating case studies of actual patients show that clairvoyant observation can diagnose disease and even reveal potential illness before it manifests in physical symptoms. The key to health and disease, the author shows, lies in the dynamic interaction between the body’s physical, emotional and mental fields and universal energy fields. Understanding this interaction can help us alter our energy patterns in the direction of better self-integration, health and wholeness.

From Chapter 17: ‘The Role of Consciousness – Towards the Future (p. 190):

” The chakras are centers of energy, which are constantly interacting with one another from hour to hour, and changes in the energy patterns occur as a continuing process. Healing therefore reflected in changes of rhythm and other basic alterations in these centers. Meditation and visualization, if done regularly and combined with changes in behavior, can produce modifications in the chakra patterns, and these are reflected in the person’s health and physical well-being. A genuine transformation can thus be observed. Whether the person knows about the role the chakras play as energy centers makes no difference whatsoever. “
