Swami Rama & Swami Ajaya, PhD
In Creative Use of Emotion, Swami Rama, a great sage of the Himalayas, collaborates with Swami Ajaya, an American-trained psychologist, to introduce a practical and holistic perspective on the role of emotions in the evolution of consciousness. These renowned men explain how we can expand our consciousness from a state of conflict, confusion, and unrest to an experience of peace, joy, and radiance, which lies at the core of our being. This important work outlines the journey from emotion to enlightenment, and sheds light on how the creative use of emotion empowers inner transformation and the pursuit of freedom, while helping us engage in the drama of life with a clear, calm, and joyful mind.
