Description

The history of this ancient tradition remains shrouded in mystery. It is helpful for the modern student of meditation to understand this tradition and the lineage of sages who have carried on these teachings. But in seeking to study it, the student, no matter how sincere, is at a disadvantage-many of the ancient texts do not exist in translation, or even when they do, heir teachings require clarification and interpretation if they are to provide seekers with any practical guidance.

REVIEW

The tradition of the Himalayan sages is an unbroken chain extending for thousands of years, a living tradition that still exists today. Undisturbed by the passage of time or other external changes. This tradition is not concerned with teachings that are limited in their applicability to any era of history or to any geographical region of the world-its entire emphasis is on the experience of that Truth which is eternal and universal. May all who read this important book make progress on their spiritual journey.
