About

Namaste! 
 I'm Christopher Tompkins, a scholar of Sanskrit and Tantrik Yoga History. You can learn more about me here.

For the last decade, I have devotedly researched hundreds of mostly un-published Tantrik texts spanning 1,400 years of un-chartered Yoga history. My focus has been on the role and evolution of Kundalinī and the Chakras in Tantrik Yoga, with a specialization for deciphering the actual daily practices.

I've found extensive evidence that Kundalinī Shakti was a liberating sonic power, activated above the head, and drawn down to invigorate the subtle body and to increase the potency of one's day-to-day life force. In the source texts, this vital energy is never portrayed as a dormant power at the  base of the spine, as we've been told.  As a Patreon Patron, you are helping me to reveal the daily Kundalinī-based Yoga sādhana as originally taught in source Tantras. 
With your help, I will also show how this sādhana nuanced into a postural practice from which several lineages of modern yoga have emerged.


Patrons who support me here with a monthly donation will receive:
  • updates on current writing posted only in Patreon
  • forum to ask questions on all of my research, answered weekly
  • access to a monthly online Webinar (live, but also recorded) in which you can receive translations on the teachings of Kundalinī, Chakras & original practices, as well as ask questions to unpack this rich history.
  • monthly members-only pdf translations from the original Sanskrit on Kundalinī and the Chakras, from (mostly) un-published Tantric texts. Here's a look at the breadth of texts I'm working with (video).
  • special guided meditations, as audio files. These will include translations of previously unknown Gayatri Mantras (from the Tantras), and Shākta (Goddess)-based Samyoga meditations.

If you would like to only make a one time donation:
Become a patron, and simply delete your pledge after you've been successfully charged for the first month. An email confirmation will automatically follow the first charge, after which you can cancel your pledge. Questions -  [email protected]
Thank You for supporting the teachings. May all beings be blessed!

The Chakra Scroll Translation Project ~ updated 11/22/2019

* $2000 per month needed so that I can afford to create a master translation 
* This project concerns a single, powerful, and mysterious text, replicated in seven beautiful scrolls discovered throughout India by Christopher Tompkins between 2012-2019.
* This text outline the lost sequence (vinyāsa) of the Kundalinī based Yoga practice universal to the Tantrik tradition.
