It is written in the author's mentor, Vimalananda?s, own words presenting to the reader some of his life's events, his philosophical tenets and a glimpse into his spiritual practices.
Summary Of The Book
Aghora deals with the spiritual discipline of Tantra that takes it to its very extreme, and a person practicing it is an Aghori. Aghora was to Vimalananda, a deeply rooted internal process that does away with all accepted restrictions to the human capabilities of perception. It gives the readers a rare glimpse into the life of the practicing Tantric master taking them into the depths of consciousness in a well explained manner. It tells the tales of Vimalananda and his many yogi friends. The book preaches that reality can be obtained not by giving up the world but instead embracing it with open arms.
Aghora: At The Left Hand Of God will both shock and comfort the readers, presenting to them a better understanding of Vimalananda Aghora, a man who was shrouded in mystery during his lifetime. He had insisted that this book should be published only after his death with the intention of avoiding people who might be curious to meet him after reading some of the astounding events within the book.
Vimalananda devoted his entire life in the pursuit of attaining a personal experience of God and advises the readers to undertake a similar quest. He goes onto caution the readers telling them not to believe everything that he says to be the truth as he is human too and is bound to make mistakes. He instead suggests that the readers should test on themselves all that has been mentioned in Aghora: At The Left Hand Of God, experience it and then decide for themselves whether it is the truth or not.
