KUNDALINI RISES IN THE WEST
The experience and achievement of Master Chia, while amating and impressive, is by no means unique. W. Thomas Wolfe, an I. B.M. Computer Programming Planner in Poughkeepsie, New York, experienced the Life Energy in 1975. Part of the experience was very much like Master Chia's experience. He wrote a book named: AND THE SUN IS UP, KUNDALINI RISES IN THE WEST. The book is available by writing to:
Academy Hill Press, 292 Academy Hill Road, Red Hook, N.y. 12571
Itzhak Bentov in his book STALKING THE WIIfl PENDULUM by Dutton Paperback had a whole chapter on the Physio-Kundalini Syndrome. He reported 3 case-histories in great detail,'many aspects of which are similar to Master Chia's experience. The March 1978 issue of New Age magazine featured an interview with Itzhak Bentov on "Kundalini Casualties". New Age magazine conducted a project on spiritual casualties and many questions related to experiences with the Life Energy in different parts of the body was included in the questionaire. Due to the untimely death of Ben Bentov in May 1979's DC-10 crash, the project was abruptly halted. Reportedly several hundred readers responded.

Of special interest is Gopi Krishna's description of a hidden organ in the base of the spine, converting the reproductive fluid into a radiant vital essence of high potency, which races along the spinal canal to nourish the brain.
