PRESS OPINIONS
The Occult Review, London – “Kundalini is a subject of perennial interest… Dr. Rele has come to the original conclusion that Kundalini is the Vagus nerve of the human body… He has made a thorough and useful study.”

The Two Worlds.— “A book for the earnest student. There is a glossary of Sanskrit anatomical terms and a bibliography which will be of help to the reader.”

The Vedic Magazine – “The book is worth reading. The author has ably, and with success, dealt with all subjects which could in any way help elucidating the theme of Five Pranas, Five Vayus, Six Chakras, Mudras, Bandhas, and the Eightfold Yoga.” Yoga The exposition is as suggestive as it is interesting and the book is sure to be of great use to workers in the field of the scientific interpretation of Yoga.”

The Light – “A very interesting book.”

The Vedanta Kesari – “It is the result of a sincere attempt to explain Yoga in the light of modern Science, hard labour, wise study, and deep thinking. Such enterprise is indeed admirable in these days.”

Nature – “The chief interest of this book consists in the description of the modification at will of certain physiological processes by a Yogi. It has a distinct value as describing and illustrating the physical training of the Yogi, and interpreting the difficult pseudo-anatomical descriptions of the Tantric Texts.”

Mahratta – “The labour and intelligence he has brought to bear on the subject will be sure to provide inspiration to others.”

The Leader – “This interesting book… we heartily commend.”

The Indian Daily Mail – “This book will reveal many prejudices against Yoga, and a new field of research.”
