The Manual for Self Realization: 112 Meditations of the Vijnana Bhairava (Lakshmanjoo Academy Book Series)By Swami Lakshmanjoo, John Hughes
In the Vijnana Bhairava, Bhairavi (the Divine Mother) asks Lord Bhairava (God) to clear Her doubts about the essence of the path towards Self-realization. Compelled by Her sincerity and the simple yet penetrating insight of Her question, Bhairava explicitly reveals 112 contemplative techniques for entering into the state of God consciousness.
In this multimedia study set, Swami Lakshmanjoo, an accomplished master of the Kashmir Shaiva school, not only translates the Sanskrit text into English but also lays bare the essential tricks involved in each of the contemplative techniques.
“…Lakshmanjoo shares with me this ancient teaching from the Vijnana Bhairava…. Shiva first chanted it to his consort Devi in a language of love we have yet to learn. It presents 112 ways to open the invisible door of consciousness. I see Lakshmanjoo gives his life to its practice.
