From the Heart of the Lotus: The Teaching Stories of Swami Kripalu compiled by John Mundahl (paperback book)
Kripalu was a renowned master of kundalini yoga. Even though he maintained the most rigorous spiritual discipline (including 22 years spent in complete silence), he was fond of telling unforgettable, often funny and heart-warming stories as a way of making his teachings relevant to everyday life. In 1977, Swami Kripalu surprised his thousands of Indian followers by accepting an invitation from his devoted disciples, Gurudev and Mataji, (Yogi Amrit Desai and Urmila Desai) to visit America. He was so struck by the spiritual openness of the American youth he met that he stayed more than four years. He deviated from his life of silence to deliver a series of teachings from which the stories in this book are largely derived. The stories themselves contain the essence of his deepest spiritual teachings, which still serve today as the foundation of Kripalu Yoga CenterÕs approach to yoga and spiritual life.
