Summary

From the celebrated scholar and lecturer Andrew Harvey, a fascinating and inspiring introduction to the essential texts and themes of the great mystics.

The mystic's journey is one taken on behalf of all humanity, whether based on the Buddhist vision of the Badhisattva or the Christian concept of service. Harvey offers extracts from Buddhist, Taoist, Jewish, Christian, Hindu, Islamic, Greek traditions, as well as aboriginal sources, all beautifully introduced with essential historical information. Particularly drawing upon the sacred feminine, these poignant selections provide a fascinating introduction to the essential text and themes of the world's great mystic visionaries.

Wisdom Packed

A book packed with wisdom and should be read slowly. I also appreciate that the author was the narrator as I love listening to him.
