But the book can surely open gates to a whole different world of learning. Preview — Aghora by Robert E. May 23, Anurag Tripathi rated it really liked it. He, scrupulously, reaffirms his own Indian tradition as possessing everything for reaching spiritual fulfillment. I was great to know about the journey of Vimalanadha.
And say they really took place, so much more the truthfulness in the power of magic. In so doing, it offers these ancient paradigms access into the practice of modern healing for a synergistic, inclusive approach.
Honestly speaking, I don’t know how to rate this book. Aghra books in the series.
Aghora: At the Left Hand of God
This is perhaps the best way to really get the know Aghora, through stories, anecdotes, witty yet wise aphorisms and stern truthfulness. Robert Svoboda does a great job telling the story of his guru, while imparting invaluable knowledge. Nov 14, Deepti rated it it was amazing. This is the world he knows best and of which he sees the metaphysical reasons for being as such. 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.
I think one time read wasn’t enough, and it definitely requires a 2nd read.

Mar 08, Robert M. Very difficult to understand all the mysteries on this earth. The third book in the Aghora trilogy featuring Dr. I have come across many guru’s and Svlboda is one of the few who I felt to be genuine, sticking up to his guns and having only one ambition, selflessly loving Kali, the mother of all. Open Preview See a Problem? This approach blends principles of analysis familiar to those who have studied Indian astrology with lesser-known techniques culled from the classic texts and oral traditions of Jyotisha.
Vimalananda doesn’t hide his contempt for the Western mindset, which to him seems like a confused, loveless and traumatized robedt instead of the apex of historical unfolding. Chart analysis then becomes a useful tool for self-awareness when examining a relationship: Rboert arguments were compelling. Our recently acquired sense of pluralism might conflict with this sort of dogmatism, but Vimalananda isn’t invested in changing the world, nor lecturing Westerners on aghoda to organize their society.
Aug 26, Manikantan rated it it was amazing. One cannot act and think to get away with it. Not for the weak-hearted definitely. Robert has done an impeccable job of writing this without any prejudice of his own. Books by Robert E. Very svoboea his tales border the fantastic and one wonders if they actually happened for real or were plays of his powerful imagination. Compelled to pen down my disappointment as I had high expectations from this book.
Aug 31, Achint Bansal rated it it was amazing. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised to have a storytelling aghori Vimalananda address the reader as if he just met him at a bar. Getting past our relativistic eurocentrism is another lesson Vimalananda wishes to get across.
Aghora: At the Left Hand of God by Robert E. Svoboda
No trivia or quizzes yet. In retrospect, there is a lot of merit in his writings, particularly if you approach it from the idea of Svoboda’s work is interesting and very challenging. What are you waiting for? He’s not trying to sell his teachings, it’s too late for that anyways god bless him.
Secondly, since this book was written primarily for Western readers, it is obsessively preoccupied with sex, and contains numerous errors in its depiction of various mythological stories, presented as anecdotes.
Less of the philosophy of Shiva and it’s link and evolution to the way of life and outlook of Aghoris.
