Having read all the three of the Aghora series books,ie,Aghora 1,Kundalini & Karma, gave me a better picture of the Tantrik practices in general , how kundalini is connected to our perception of the world around us which makes our perspective on the same ,& then about karma which was the first read among the three above presented a lucid understanding of this perplexing Law of Karma(a lot of references from the Indian history).

These books will surely free us from a negative opinion which

The Aghora Triology - a set of three books that were so fascinating that I finished them all in a fortnight.

The author is an American who had come to study Ayurveda in a college at Poona in the 80s when he meets an Aghori.

The series elucidates about the reasoning and philosophy behind some of the seemingly bizarre practices of Aghora that the society views with contempt and horror.

In addition, the author shed light on the epic poem Ramayana, and explains it in a way that is illuminating for the

The Law of Karma could not have been described in better way than it is in this book.

The completion of the Trilogy. Only for hard-core sadhaks.
The subtitle of this book is "The Law of Karma".

Here the Aghora, the mentor of the author, with whom he spent around 7 years, puts forth his knowledge of the Karmic effects of our acts. All acts are karmic, no act is beyond or above karma...we have to go through the effects of all our actions + thoughts + intentions during all our lives -- when or how or in which birth? -- that only nature decides....

Aghora series bring in the esoteric teachings of Tantra..Spiritual practices without any Dogmas. Even though I have my reservations on many of the teachings and their implications, I agree with the essence of spirituality and many laws that govern them....All in all a good read and highly recommended for anybody interested to breakout of their shells of conditioned religion and related practice

I was completely fortified by the first one. However, in the third volume Svoboda had not much to offer than what was explained in Volume one. Volume three is a detailed narration of events. I lost interest after a few chapters. Stephen Knapp has written about Karma and reincarnation more beautifully.

Law of Karma explained in detail. The Hindu abstraction of Nature is also explained very well.

One of the good books that I have read. The best thing is that the language used to describe complex things is very simple ...a little bit of concentration and thinking while reading will open up the book to the reader.
