The Aghora Triology – a set of three books that were so fascinating that I finished them all in a fortnight. It’s as if Vimalananda is speaking to you. Trying to understand a spiritual concept by reading a book, is an exercise in futility, since all that we read therein are 3rd party accounts, hearsay, claims, and sundry tall tales. Published in English and available on Kindle. While this book is primarily on the dark side of spirituality, if you try and not take everything literally, it might make sense.
There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Not for the weak-hearted definitely.

Aghora: At the Left Hand of God v. I
It is just so much more than knowledge on the Aghora cult. It also makes you realise that your karma is going to tie you to rnabandhana forever, and there’s only a lucky few who’d be able to break those ties. To explain this concept Vimalananda uses the backdrop of the Bombay racecourse as a potent metaphor for the ultimate game of life, where destinies and fortunes are forged or lost at the aghhora line.

Aghora: At the Left Hand of God v. I : Robert E. Svoboda :
Wondering about everything and anything? And say they really took place, so much more the truthfulness in the power of magic. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Firstly, this book is a compilation of stuff narrated or recounted by Aghori Vimalananda. Robert has done an impeccable job of writing this without any prejudice of his own.
Nov 14, Deepti rated it it was amazing. Nov 10, Purva Khandelwal rated it really liked it. Apr 14, Latha Lokanath Pradeep rated it really liked it. The book shocks you. These two indigenous healing arts that arose independently in China and India communed and exchanged experience, techniques, and therapeutic substances over the epochs of their development.
However, it turned out to be one full of gimmicks and self promotion of a self proclaimed Aghori by his nominated disciple, rather than a deep understanding and interpretation of the apparent chaotic elements of Shiva underlining the philoophy of Aghora. The Greatness of Saturn The telling of mythic stories has always been a powerful form agyora therapy, bringing healing to people ssvoboda adversity.
This is perhaps the best way to really get the know Aghora, through stories, anecdotes, witty yet wise aphorisms and stern truthfulness. It is svoobda for the faint hearted nor for the strict conservative.
Contrary to the common misunderstanding that aghori’s are hedonists, Vimalananda asserts that they are ascetics and only indulge in these seemingly debaucherous acts in a ritualistic context. More importantly, the whole larger than life personality of Vimalananda and his Gurus makes you read these books in bated breath. Robert Svoboda does a great job telling the story of his guru, while imparting invaluable knowledge.
Aug 03, Elbe rated it really liked it. Aug 31, Achint Bansal rated it it was amazing. Contrary to the common misunderstanding that aghori’s are hedonists, Vimalananda asserts that they are as When I picked up this book I assumed this would be a standard work dealing with the history, practise and philosophy of Aghora. Vimalananda doesn’t hide his contempt for the Western mindset, which to him seems like a confused, loveless and traumatized child instead of the apex of historical unfolding.
Designed partly to shock and partly to comfort, but wholly as an offering to his Beloved, Aghora is a picture of a man who was a riddle wrapped up in an enigma.
