I was surprised to see that book is actually a booklet and very disappointed reading its content, Its like promotional material for promoting Kriya yoga or whatever the author conducts.
Dont ever bother reading it. There is nothing here.

Every page I read is making my crown bigger; this is a very charged book. A definitely not to be missed book.
