"Shiva does not spell religion. Shiva spells responsibility - our ability to take our very life process in our hand"
'Shi-va' is 'that which is not', a immemorial emptiness; Shiva is also the first-ever yogi, Adiyogi, the one who first perceived this emptiness. Adiyog is symbol and myth, historic figure and living presence, creator and destroyer, outlaw and ascetic, cosmic dance and passionate lover, all at once.
A book like no other, this extraordinary document is a tribute to Shiva, the Adiyogi, by a living yogi; a chronicle of the progenitor or of mysticism by a contemporary mystic. Here science and philosophy merge seamlessly, so do silence and sound, question and answer - to capture the unspeakable enigma of Adiyogi in a spellbinding wave of words and ideas that will leave one entranced, transformed.
