Our world is in turmoil—undoubtedly a reflection of the complex imbalance that afflict every level of the global society—and many fear that mankind is doomed to failure. Yet, in the Third Advent, the author contends that we are on the threshold of a complete transformation, that individually we can change the core of our being and hence the world itself.With remarkable candour, Grégoire de Kalbermatten recounts his own event-filled path to enlightenment, a part which ended at the feet of Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi. She introduced him to Sahaja Yoga, an astonishingly simple method of inner transformation with far-reaching and profound implications for our ability to rise from the ashes of our past foibles. He presents her teachings here against the background of an astute, scholarly and entertaining probe into 6000 years of politics, economics, philosophy and religion—from the prophecies of the twelfth-century Italian mystic Joachim di Fiore to Krishna and the birth of Jesus Christ—to impart a message of hope for the future that is as practical as it is profound. He also discusses how the principles of Sahaja Yoga can be integrated into business practices at the corporate level, resulting in greater prosperity for all.
