"The Psychology of Kundalini Yoga serves as an excellent introduction to the higher realms of consciousness... I enthusiastically recommend this book as an introduction to realms of analytic thought generally outside the classical and mainstream views."--David Nichol, Psychoanalytic Books: A Quarterly Journal of Reviews "In these four lectures ... Jung placed some very complex Indian concepts within the Western psychological understanding of his time, thereby helping us to grasp better both systems of thought and realization."--Betsy Halpern, Quadrant "Shamdasani has performed a valuable service by editing these seminar notes and making them available to a wider audience. In addition to Jung's four lectures [he] provides an excellent introduction as well as informative footnotes... This volume is a welcome addition to the Bollingen Seminar Series."--William E. Kotsch, Journal of Analytical Psychology
