An account, partly autobiographical, of how the ancient spiritual knowledge of the East and meditation made its way to western civilization through the efforts of a few inspired seekers of uncommon courage and discipline, including Gurdjieff and Ouspensky, Dr Francis Roles and Leon MacLaren, and the Maharishi and Shantananda Saraswati.
Fascinated by the body of knowledge the two independent groups had in common John Adago spent many years seeking the connection between the â€˜Workâ€™ of Gurdjieff and Ouspensky, The School of Economic Science, The Study Society in New York and London, and master teachers in the East that inspired them.
A most fascinating book of the master teachers of modern times!
