Aghora: At the Left Hand of God
This is perhaps the best way to really get the know Aghora, through stories, anecdotes, witty yet wise aphorisms and stern truthfulness. During and after my formal Ayurvedic training I was tutored in Ayurveda, Yoga, Jyotisha, Tantra and allied subjects by my mentor, the Aghori Vimalananda. You would be pleasantly terrified, I assure you. 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.
Very difficult to understand all the mysteries on this earth. Apr 14, Latha Rpbert Pradeep rated it really liked it.
This book was mind blowing. A short introductory book on the ancient Indian healing system known as Ayurveda. Rnanubandhana bondage to karmic debt as a concept returns many times throughout the book.

Aghora: At the Left Hand of God v. I : Robert E. Svoboda :
Wondering about everything and anything? Robert Svoboda, two experts and long-term practitioners. It’s as if Vimalananda is speaking to you. Our recently acquired sense of pluralism might conflict with this sort of dogmatism, but Vimalananda isn’t invested in changing the world, nor lecturing Westerners on how to organize their society. Utilizing herbs and minerals, proper nutrition and purification and, above all, affirmative ways of living, Ayurveda treats not just the ailment but the whole person and emphasizes prevention of disease to avoid the need for cure.

Nov 14, Deepti rated it it was amazing. Read, at your own risk! While this book is primarily on the dark side of spirituality, if you try and not take everything literally, it might make sense. Taken from the Vedic tradition, it honors the planet Saturn, who personifies time, limitation, loss, and all forms of adversity. This approach blends principles of analysis familiar to those who aghorx studied Indian astrology with lesser-known techniques culled from the classic texts and oral traditions of Jyotisha.
These two indigenous healing arts that arose independently in China and India communed and exchanged experience, techniques, and therapeutic substances over the epochs of their development. Available in English in the US and India. Jun 18, Bharat Mantha rated it it was amazing. But then, that was expected. I am human, I make mistakes. I highly recommend the series for anybody interested in ancient Indian spiritual practices.
Vimalananda insisted that this book be published only after his demise, that he might be spared pursuit by those whose curiosity might be inflamed by some agohra the sensational events described within.
Lists with This Book.
I first read this while in Nepal in the midst of an intensive roberh of Kaula sadhana, and at the time did not get much out of it as the dreamlike qualities of the material clashed with my own experience my mistake to read a book about tantra while engaged in tantra! Contrary to the common misunderstanding that aghori’s are hedonists, Vimalananda asserts that they are as When I picked up this book I assumed this would be a standard work dealing with the history, practise and philosophy of Aghora.
This book is a meeting with Aghora and that makes it such sfoboda refreshing read.
Clear, concise and svobodz – don’t try this at home. If you are even a little ‘witchy’ this book will become your bible. Jan 01, Gregory Peters rated it liked it. In retrospect, there is a lot of merit in his writings, particularly if you approach it from the idea of entering the dreamlands and exploring aspects of the work that may not necessarily make sense to the rational mind. Perhaps this too is a duality we need to leave behind and see in the light of the svobboda wisdom it expounds.

Aghora: At the Left Hand of God by Robert E. Svoboda
By the time I reached to the end of the book, I knew of so many things we do wrong today. Firstly, this book is a compi Trying to understand a spiritual concept by reading a book, is an exercise in futility, since all that we read therein are 3rd party accounts, hearsay, claims, and sundry tall tales.
Hardcoverpages. Test on yourselves what I’ve told you. Honestly speaking, I don’t know how to rate this book. Published in English and available on Kindle. The authors maintain that your chart outlines your fate only in that it reflects your traits and ideals — karmas dictated by past actions and conditioning — which can be mediated by exercising free will.
