About Swami Khecaranatha
He was born in Illinois in 1951 but spent my formative years in an international environment, living in Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, and Tripoli, Libya. He returned to the United States in 1970, and in October 1971 he met my spiritual teacher, Swami Rudrananda, affectionately called Rudi.
He presents a systematic guide to the practice of Kuṇḍalinī Sādhana, including how to develop the flow that awakens the living force of kuṇḍalinī. The direct awakening of kuṇḍalinī by śakti 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. Thus, he summates in his realization and teachings what was considered by the Kashmiris to be the most elevated practice of all the Tantric schools
