 Blurb :

When we think of wellbeing, we often think of our physical and mental health-tending to our bodies and minds to find peace, purpose, and connection in our lives. But as Kamlesh D. Patel (affectionately known as Daaji), spiritual leader of the Heartfulness Organization and fourth in line to the raja yoga tradition illuminates, there is a third system we too often overlook: The Spiritual Anatomy.

Acting as a sort of atlas for consciousness, the chakras-the centers of spiritual energy that comprise our spiritual anatomy-lead us back to our hearts, ourselves, and the sustainable happiness and meaning we crave. Along the way readers will learn:

- The role and importance of the chakras

- What blocks our chakras and how to clean them

- Meditation techniques that bring you closer to the heart's center

- How connecting deeply with our chakras can open our hearts, minds, and souls

As grounding as it is groundbreaking, Spiritual Anatomy is a must-read for seekers, meditators, and anyone who wants to cultivate joy in their life.

My Review :

At some point in our lives, we connect with our spiritual self and it's not easy to get self peace. I was looking for an easy guide that would not only teach about mediation but also be a guide to understand our anatomy. The blurb intrigued me and rightfully so, it's a detailed guide of what I was looking for and even more. I had no idea about what chakras meant, but all the chakras are explained so well and the best part is it shows the path on how to cleanse them. Another thing that I really liked about the book is that How attitudes drives our thoughts, then our actions and how right attitudes creates an environment which accelerates our evolution. Rightfully so, if we have a negative attitude about something, the result will always be negative. On the other hand, if we have a positive attitude towards something, then the negative things can also turn into positive because our perspective changes.  Before reading this book, to me being spiritual meant to be religious but now I've realized that spirituality is beyond religion.  This is the first book that I have read by Daaji. I highly recommend everyone to read this book. It's a real treasure!
