Born in Denmark, in 1890, Sunyata was from birth, utterly without desire, ambition and ego. Thus, the name "Sunyata"—and description of "rare-born mystic"—was given to him years later in India by the revered sage, Sri Ramana Maharshi. A lover of silence and solitude, Sunyata remained untouched by the common worldly conditioning that entraps so many. His fateful journeys, inspiring friendships, and the spiritual wisdom shared in these collected writings, all reflect the soul of an authentic seer. Sunyata's experiences and musings are ever relevant, for they concern something that is of value to all—the illumination and liberation of the human spirit. Adyashanti writes, “Sunyata was the rarest of incarnations. A naturally born enlightened being of singular uniqueness and inventiveness. The story of his life is itself a profound spiritual teaching and a living example of how awakened spirit moves through the challenges of life.”

"Stray Birds" contains ideas on nature, man, and his environment as may be entertained by a man sitting by a window where the stray birds of summer sing and fly away. These short, sometimes merely one-line poems are often just an image or the distillation of a thought, but they stay in the mind and do not fly away as easily as the birds. The author, Rabindranath Tagore, was a Nobel laureate for literature (1913) as well as one of India's greatest poets and the composer of independent India's national anthem, as well as that of Bangladesh. He wrote successfully in all literary genres, but was first and foremost a poet, publishing more than 50 volumes of poetry. He was a Bengali writer who was born in Calcutta and later traveled around the world. He was knighted in 1915, but gave up his knighthood after the massacre of demonstrators in India in 1919.

In 1895 Swami Vivekananda of the Ramakrishna Mission initiated two Europeans one a womean into the ancient tradition of sannyasa or world-renuciation. This practice was continued in the first part of the twentieth century by Swami Shivananda of Rishikesh. From the late sixties onwards with the sudden expansion of European awareness of Indian Spirituality, a vast hord of foreign religious heads have spread through India in incomprehensibly large numbers.

In his commentaries on five parables from the Leih Tzu, Osho brings a fresh and contemporary interpretation to the ancient wisdom of Tao. Leih Tzu was a well-known Taoist master in the fourth century B.C., and his sly critiques of a Confucius provide abundant opportunities for the reader to explore the contrasts between the rational and irrational, the male and female, the structured and the spontaneous. "Who Is Really Happy" uses the discovery of a human skull on the roadside to probe into the question of immortality and how misery arises out of the existence of the ego. "A Man Who Knows How to Console Himself" looks beneath the apparent cheerfulness of a wandering monk and asks if there is really a happiness that endures through life's ups and downs. "No Regrets" is a parable about the difference between the knowledge that is gathered from the outside and the "knowing" that arises from within. "No Rest for the Living" uses a dialogue between a despondent seeker and his master to reveal the limits of philosophy and the crippling consequences of living for the sake of some future goal. "Best Be Still, Best Be Empty" discusses the difference between the path of the will, the via affirmitiva of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, versus the path of the mystic, the via negativa of Buddha and Lao Tzu. A Q&A section addresses how Taoist understanding applies to everyday life in concrete, practical terms.

COMPARABLE IN LASTING significance to the famous classics TheWay of a Pilgrim and Brother Lawrence's The Practice of the Presence of God, this book is an extraordinary spiritual autobiography. It recounts the story of a homeless monk's journey as he travels the dusty roads and paths of the Indian subcontinent, from the ancient temples of the south to the awe-inspiring, snow-covered Himalayas of the north. This is the tale of a pilgrimage, vividly and compellingly told, taken with the hallmarks of complete faith in the Creator and constant remembrance of God. Swami Ramdas did not accept money and treated all people he encountered as manifestations of his Beloved. The narrative contains many inspiring accounts of how his pure love transformed people who at first treated him very harshly. Whatever situation he was placed in, he didn't fail to notice the lighter side, which appealed to his keen sense of the comic and ludicrous in life. He never lost this quality, even after he became God-intoxicated and lived on the road in total, blissful surrender to the divine will. Many readers find themselves in a lifelong love affair with this story. This book is the first in a trilogy chronicling Swami Ramdas' pilgrimage to God-realization. The next two volumes, In the Vision of God, volumes I and II, are also available from Blue Dove Press.

This collection of aphorisms is just a gem of wisdom and mysticism with a touch of humour. It helps you to discover your very being at the same time as hinting practical solutions for your daily life: feeling, thinking, speaking, acting. It is the only book Hazrat Inayat Khan actually wrote himself. All the others (vide The Sufi Message, Vols. I-XIII) are representations of his discourses. Besides aphorisms it contains a small yet highly inspiring collection of prayers. Throughout the book you will find poems which are truly spiritual.
