Book Praise

Book Praise

"Soon Evola will be an immovable object in the field of serious esotericism in the English-speaking world, as he already is for readers of Italian, French, and German.

The Yoga of Power
puts to shame those modern writers who have degraded Tantra to a subject for New Age sex manuals.

To read his descriptions of the higher spiritual states is like watching a champion mountain-climber on a vertical glacier."

Gnosis Magazine



"This richly layered and exacting work will challenge and fascinate."
