In his classic 1927 monograph THE CHAKRAS, C.W. Leadbeater (long-time associate of the Theosophical Society and founding bishop of the Liberal Catholic Church) collects and updates a series of earlier articles elaborating and synthesizing various eastern doctrines associated with the nadis and chakras. The author claims that his work is among the first published in the English language on the topic. Bibliohead Bookstore is proud to offer for sale a choice first edition of this pioneering work on yoga, replete with several color plates depicting the various energy centers. Published 1927 by the Theosophical Press, Chicago, cloth. Below are two of our favorite chakras.
