Penned by Kalidas
"The book is magnificent, epic!! It, in brief lines of prose and deep inspiration, exposes the eternal truth and perennial philosophy naked to the world. It is a book that can be read in an hour and must be studied for a lifetime to reveal the astonishing truths hidden in its pages.
Kali's Bazaar contains a distillation of the essence of all the world's mystery and ecstatic traditions.
Embrace the light streaming from its pages!"
Curtis Allen, author of Quantum Christ
In this collection, Kali Das (servant of Kali) offer us the distillation of a lifetime of spiritual seeking and devotion. Each poem glows with the iridescent spark of that sacred essence left in the alchemist’s dish when all the dross has been sifted away. Yeats used the phrase “when naked to naked goes” to describe such moments, when the unadorned soul unites with the Beloved in shameless adoration. These poems allow us to observe at close hand this profound process by which the mundane substance of the material self is transmuted into the clarity of the refined being, the gold of pure spirit.
For many years a monk in India, later an accomplished Jungian therapist, workshop leader, and meditation master, Kali Das (Lawrence Edwards, Ph. D.) now devotes much of his time to helping others on the path, particularly those undergoing unexpected Kundalini awakening. This is the gift he returns to the world, precious goods recovered from a lifetime voyage into the authentic self.
