Library Journal Review

This somewhat curious anthology brings together instances and anecdotes on themes such as openness, tranquillity, harmony, and meditation by writers as various as Sylvia Boorstein, Venerable Henepola Gunaratana, Robert Pirsig, and Ken Wilber to demonstrate the common grounding of their thought in Eastern wisdoms. This should prove an excellent starter text for beginners in spiritual development and a springboard for interest in its many contributors. For collections strong in New Age spirituality.
