The Body is a balanced course in perceiving and perfecting the physical body's potential to become an eloquent expression of the divine force within. All the exercises, breathings, hygienic and dietary suggestions collected in this second volume have a two-fold purpose. First, to make the development of intuition and the deepening of meditation easier. And second, to assure physical, psychological and spiritual safety when awakening and directing the spirit-energy locked within the unregenerated physical organism. With the ultimate goal of transmuting "sexual" energy to its higher octave, The Body presents a sane and effective graduated sexual ethic that acknowledges individual levels of development and spiritual commitment.
"The body is as much a divine projection as the planet on which it dwells.- Paul Brunton
"...vigorous, clear-minded and independent...a synthesis of Eastern mysticism and Western rationality..." - Library Journal
