Depth Over Time offers a vision of the freedom and liberation available through the practice of Kundalini MahaYoga. Topics include Grace and individual effort, our relationship with God, the wish to grow, the teacher-student relationship, selfless service, surrender, cultivating stillness, and the critical need to consciously choose spirituality, moment by moment. The author, Swami Khecaranatha, has been teaching since 1972 and is an authentic adept of Tantric Shaivism in the Shaktipat Lineage of Bhagavan Nityananda and Swami Rudrananda. Khecaranatha has the ability to express the highest knowledge of the ancient Kashmiri Shaivite masters in language that Westerners can understand in the context of their own lives.
Mark Dyczkowski, Ph.D., renowned scholar and author on Tantra and Kashmiri Shaivism, wrote a preface for the book and stated: “The direct awakening of Kundalini by shaktipat is considered to be the most excellent in the Tantric tradition, and this form of higher initiation is the essence of the practice taught by Swami Khecaranatha. It is marvelous to see how his teachings coincide with the Trika school of Shaivism. Khecaranatha has attained, through the transmission of his teachers and a lifetime of practice and profound personal experience, a deep understanding of Kashmiri Shaivism and Anuttara Trika.”
Depth Over Time offers inspirational and practical guidance, emphasizing that spiritual practice does not just happen while sitting on a cushion, but must be integrated into all aspects of one’s life. Swami Khecaranatha makes it clear that attaining liberation and living in Divine Presence is not just the purview of saints, but a real possibility for anyone willing to devote his or her life to the pursuit of unconditional freedom.
