Publisher's Synopsis

In his commentary on these fifty-two stanzas, the sage Ksemaraja described them as the heart of the Mahamudra. The oldest masters of Spandakarika viewed everything in the universe, including matter, as consciousness and created a yoga practice in accordance with this realization.

The sacred dance of Yoga Spandakarika, Tandava, is extremely subtle and difficult, requiring thousands of hours of practice to master, yet it surpasses any other physical practice, allowing the practitioner to touch the divine inner pulse.

In Yoga Spandakarika Daniel Odier passes on these vanishing teachings as he received them from his Tibetan master, Kalu Rinpoche, and Kashmiri yogi Lalita Devi.


"Teacher and author Daniel Odier brings one of the first translations of this scripture to the West with clear and engaging language and commentaries.

In the book, he also presents the Vijnana-Bhairava - another fundamental text of Kashmir Saivism - and other scriptures to help assimilate the teachings."      ~Ascent Magazine
