Hi, I'm Christopher, also known as Hareesh. 

I wrote the book Tantra Illuminated, about the little-understood spiritual tradition of Tantric Shaivism.  I recently finished my second book, The Recognition Sutras, in which I present my translation and explanation the 1,000-year-old spiritual masterpiece Pratyabhijna-hrdaya, “The Essence of the Recognition Philosophy.” 

There's a new generation of professional scholars of the Yoga tradition who are also practitioners, and I'm proud to be part of that small but growing community. Here you'll find some of my writings, as well as my events calendar and biography. I teach around the world to yoga practitioners, and also write academically.
