Publisher's Summary

The legendary British actor Terence Stamp reads the book that he says 'changed his life'. This is an exploration of our existence and a journey towards enlightenment.

In what the author calls 'the fine print' at the start of the book, David Carse wrote: 'There are many books out there that will help you to live a better life, become a better person, and evolve and grow to realise your potential as a spiritual being. This is not one of them...almost every popular spiritual teacher in America and Europe is teaching that ultimate spiritual enlightenment...can now be yours; and that reading their book or attending their seminar will help you toward that end. This book will tell you that these ideas are absurd, because it's quite obvious that neither you nor anything else has ever existed....' He then concludes, 'That said, enjoy'. We think you probably will.

    "No words for this"

    Most sincere seekers i have come across over the years well gnash their teeth st this book and angrily dismiss it as 'neo-advaitist' nonsense, urging that you should read x,y and z spiritual master instead. For me,i see no need to add anything else to my already not inconsiderable pile. I will no doubt read more, but i am almost certain that although i may broaden my knowledge by doing so, i can never increase my understanding any further than this book has taken me. It flings the door wide open and beckons you to the threshold. There may be works out there which can bring you to the same place but i have not found them. For me, all words end here, at the beginning of silence.

    Any additional comments?

    This book has been my companion for many years. I was thrilled to see that there was an audio version and Terrance Stamp reads it with real understanding. This is the best book I've read on the experience of losing the self but gaining the All.

    "The Only Book You Need"

    The writing is clear and straight to the point. You are that. You always have been and always will be. There's no need to find it or obtain it, because it is all there is. So why listen to an audiobook on it? Because most are misidentifying with what they are not, which is the cause of all the unnecessary suffering. This book points directly to what you are and helps to untangle the mess. Let these words wash through you until it is seen that there never was a you to begin with.

    "Perfect"

    Perfect for the Western seeker, imo. The material is not new but the delivery is. Mr Carse has a way of explaining the unexplainable, more clearly than any I've read, if that makes sense. I've always cherished Nisargadatta, Maharshi, et al. So does Mr Carse, apparently.

    "A pearl beyond price"

    Treasures come our way in life sometimes through the generosity of others sharing something precious they have found. I will forever be indebted to the friend who told me about PBS and introduced me to David Carse. This is truly a life changing story, if you allow it to be. Finally the search is over for me, no small thing! I love listening to this narrative by Terence Stamp and I can tell he feels the same way, you can 'feel the love' as they say. Words cannot explain what all this means really. If you are interested don't pass this by but be ready for what might come next.

    "Outstanding!"

    There are no words to describe the message contain in this book. All I can suggest is listen with the heart and put the mind aside.

    "Excellent. "

    Good book for someone who knows a bit about adviata. But maybe good for a beginner also.

    Presents ways to live daily life.
