This site is to celebrate the life and work of Gopi
Krishna, perhaps the world's foremost expert on yoga and kundalini, who was born
in Kashmir in 1903.
Gopi Krishna is one in a long line of gurus and saints
who achieved partial or full enlightenment, such as Ramakrishna, Buddha, Christ,
Mohammed, Moses, Guru Nanak, Shankara, Lao Tzu and many others, some who are
known to history and some not.
The remarkable thing in Gopi Krishna's case, is that he
was a scientifically well informed man who wrote a detailed account of his life
story and dramatic kundalini awakening which first occurred in 1937 and
stabilized roughly 12 years later into a full state of perennial enlightenment
in around 1949.
In this privileged state, he spent the next 35 years,
until his departure from the earthly plane in 1984. During this long enlightened
period, he wrote more than 15 books, and toured the world talking to and
lecturing to groups of scientists, yoga devotees and the general public with his
yoga based scientific explanation of the phenomena of evolution, religion and
genius, based on his unique understanding and personal experience of a full
His first major work was "The Biological Basis of Religion and
Genius" with an introduction by the esteemed German scientist Professor
Carl Friedrich Von Weiszacker. In this relative short but momentous revelatory
work he explains how his knowledge and experience of the biological mechanism in
the body known to yoga philosophy as kundalini is the true cause of evolution,
thus overturning the theories of the Darwinian Evolutionists, who have in his
view by their misunderstanding of the true evolutionary process brought both
religion and mysticism into disrepute, thus leading us into what he calls
"the present crisis", in which we are witnessing the breakdown of
morality, law and order, and a progressive disintegration into war, terrorism,
and global disaster.
According to Gopi Krishna, this disaster is only avertable by a scientific
understanding of the evolutionary mechanism in the body known as kundalini, and
a consequent return to moral standards - though not necessarily those of a
prurient, puritanical nature - which are in harmony with our current stage of
evolutionary development, and pre-requisite for us taking the next step of the
evolutionary ladder, into what he describes as "a fairytale like kingdom of
light, beauty, intelligence and bliss."
The reader is warned firstly, that Gopi Krishna's works are detailed and
complex, and his message cannot be absorbed fully without a serious and
protracted study, and secondly that he never advised anybody to awaken kundalini
without the guidance of a true master, which he felt at this time was not
generally possible to find, even in India, long considered the true home of
However, his general message can be understood by all, and explains the
appearance of geniuses, prophets, and the ongoing evolutionary progress of
mankind, and gives what appears to be the only logical explanation of how we
arrived at our "present crisis" and advice of what we must all do next
in order not only to evolve and prosper, but in fact, merely to survive.
