Indian yogi, mystic, Kundalini researcher, teacher, social reformer, and writer. In 1937 he experienced a spontaneous awakening of Kundalini energy. He was first published in 1949. His 1967 autobiography is known under the title Kundalini: The Evolutionary Energy in Man.
His writings have influenced Western interest in kundalini yoga. He wrote many books and travelled all over the world giving lectures. He came to feel the kundalini experience underlies all (or most) religions that started with a personal revelation. He could see kundalini iconography in cultures worldwide, from ancient Egypt to Quetzalcoatl to the caduceus of Mercury, and believed there was a common basis, and that he had been granted entry to this vision.
Gopi Krishna was reported to be a supporter for the equality of men and women. He acted, and at one point ended up imprisoned for his actions. One of his most far-reaching contributions involved bettering conditions for widows.
Married with three children, he died of a severe lung infection on 31 July 1984, aged 81.
