Best Books for Spiritual Growth
List of Best Spiritual Books
Readers Experiences Just from Reading Spiritual Books:
I got and read some books regarding enlightenment. Now I feel same like Anmol. I did not do even a continuous meditation. I got kundalini pressure in my spine too. I got only love, all other are same like before. Happiness but no reason. I have told to my wife.
You know, I feel more happy and I never felt before.
My question is: “is it possible to have the awakening without any effort?” Because I never tried or wanted that. I even never heard of Kundalini. Only thing which I think might have contributed to it was resigning from my job (from World Health Organization) and sitting at home and reading Bhagawat Gita. Though I don’t know whether I did that consciously. It was very unlike me.
Anyway after my friend left, for about the next two weeks i started reading my bible and borrowed an old cassette tape with songs on… On a sunny day in April 1994, i was walking throw a park listening to this tape, the song was ”Breath of God Breathe on Me” as i listened to this acappella song and the harmony unity in all the singing, something inside me broke, gave up, i started crying and as i did i was suddenly overwhelmed with this amazing love, heat, and i felt something travel up through and out of top of my head. For the next 3 weeks or so, i felt this burning ball of energy in my navel/stomach area, and was in love with everything, i mean a deep divine love and i felt so pure.
(I get) Intense pressure/energy in crown head area when in temples/religious places and reading religious scriptures.
