Gorakhnath and the Kanphata yogis

The cult of the Kanphata Yogis is a definite unit within Hinduism, and its study is essential for understanding this phase of the religious life of India. In analysing the different aspects of this cult the author has drawn upon various the formulated texts of this sect. The book is divided into three sections. The first two sections comprising chapters deal with the cult and history of this sect. The third section containing chapters opens with the Sanskrit Text Goraksasataka and its English rendering and annotations. It proceeds with the analysis of physiological concepts, chief aims and methods and then comes to conclusion. The subject matter of this study has been so arranged that the first two sections serve to illustrate the third.

This book is an interesting read for a particular audience. I learnt a lot about Shiva worship and Gorakhnath from this book. I had no idea who the Kanphatas .
