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.

When it comes to weaving the esoteric Vedas into lucid prose, you can't beat Dr.Robert Svoboda. Vimalananda couldn't have found a better student to pass on his knowledge. 5 stars without batting an eyelid.
i could read this book over and over and still learn something new. if you want to truly understand karma this is the book for you.

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.

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.
Vimalananda will stay with me forever.

During and after my formal Ayurvedic training I was tutored in Ayurveda, Yoga, Jyotisha, Tantra and allied subjects by my mentor, the Aghori Vimalananda. He also owned thoroughbred race horses, and I served as his Authorized Racing Agent at the Royal Western India Turf Club in Bombay and Poona between 1975 and 1985.
