Siddha Avvai, one of the most influential sages among the Tamil speaking people of South India was a Siddha yogi. Her poems and literary works compiled here date from the first millennium. Siddha Avvai claims that her Guru was the sound of AUM, the Pranava itself, personified in the form of Ganesha, who taught her Kundalini Yoga. The poetry in this book has the power to invoke the presence of the Guru and ignite within the reader the flame of her spiritual consciousness. It points out certain aspects of the esoteric practices of Kundalini Yoga as a path that lead her to deepening states of samadhi and ultimately enlightenment and God realization.
