A Practice Book for Beginners

Dear spiritual seeker

I wrote this book in 2005 following the fruition of my own accelerated phase of personal change and spiritual growth. I wrote it from my own direct experience and observations as a teacher. The content speaks directly to the seeker who may have an attraction to spiritual awakening but little confidence on how to organise their approach.

  • Perhaps you are inspired by Sri Ramana Maharshi
  • Perhaps you want to meditate on Self-enquiry
  • Perhaps you have a background in yoga and want to extend your spiritual understanding beyond that
  • Perhaps you want to deepen your spiritual connection with the mystery and divinity of life and are attracted to the Vedanta perspective
  • Perhaps you want to answer the question ‘Who am I?’

Elsewhwere on this site there is advanced Advaita Vedanta. This book is not that.  It is instead for those who feel they are stepping out and want to gain an accessible foothold on the path. To that endeavour this book offers support.
