The Kularnava Tantra is perhaps the foremost Tantra (sacred text) of Shaivism – the instruction of Lord Shiva that The Art of Inner Transformation is based on. It is constantly cited as an authority in Tantric literature. It is worthy of close study by those who want to better understand the tenets, instruction and practices of the tradition of our approach.
Sadguru Kedarji has taken this sacred text and provided extensive commentary on the written document provided, to further elucidate the readings, in the context of The Art of Inner Transformation approach instructed by the Sages of our lineage. He was taught this Tantra by his Guru who shared the commentary of these Sages in the instruction given to Kedarji. Therefore, his commentary provided on MP3 is an exacting, precise commentary on the Kularnava, backed by the understandings of so many Self-Realized Love Beings of our lineage of Sadgurus.
The Introduction of the written, translated text by Sir John Woodroffe (Arthur Avalon) gives a concise outline of the work. In the written text, Sri M.P. Pandit who is a keen student of the Tantras and Vedas and disciple of the great Swami Lakshmanjoo has rendered the work in English in eleven chapters. The Readings are free translations – with annotations where necessary – omitting technical details but preserving the spirit and essential import of the original in his characteristically lucid style. The complete text is given in Devanagari for those who wish to study the book in the original Sanskrit.
For these reasons, work of Sadguru Kedarji’s is a must study for anyone who has made the commitment to permanent spiritual transformation and Liberation. Those who have taken a weekend Shaktipat Meditation and Blessing retreat with Kedarji will find this work exemplary in deepening their understanding of the Shaktipat Kriya Process we refer to as Sadhana, as instructed by Shivaji.
