Kundalini and Kamasutra

What Is the Sannyasin's Kundalini Path?


The sannyasin balances within himself both the male and female energies. Complete unto himself, he is whole and independent. Having attained an equilibrium of ida and pingala, he becomes a knower of the known. Aum.

From Mandala 24 in the book Dancing with Shiva in Himalayan Academy Sacred Hindu Literature Collection, one of the many collections that offer over 300,000 e-books for free during this month at the World e-Book Fair. No thanks to this guy for the tip that took me -- through several clicks -- to the scary quote above.

The quote above sent me scurrying over to Project Gutenberg to check out its lists of top 100 downloads yesterday, last 7 days and last 30 days. In all the three lists, Vatsyayana's Kama Sutra is at No. 3, (almost) restoring my faith in humanity.
