About the Book

this book is amazing. I am a buddhist and I find this book to be the work of an awakened person. He speaks of prayer to God in such a personal and intimate way that it is clear to me he himself is "one with God" or "awakened". The book is both a guide in the practice of prayer and a much deeper insight into how the human being can contact the greater truth. Absolutely astounding. I would like to buy copies of this book for Christian friends of mine as, to me, it is an astounding work of truth.
