what is enlightenment?,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Odyssey of Enlightenment: Rare Interviews with Enlightened Teachers of Our Time: Rare Interviews with Enlightened Masters of Our Time (Taschenbuch)
This book really falls in two parts. One being the journey and search of the author. His many spiritual experiences and his many disciplehoods. No doubt revealing a Western seeker of unusual dedication and (german) stubborness. All this described in a typical male way, only once(!) does he mention that he actually has a female partner. Quite unlike most similar book by women devotees where the feeling part and the love affairs usual take up a good deal of the pages :-).
While that story can be a bit overwhelming and slightly tiredsome the main part is essential and important interviews and encounters with some of the most influential contemporary spiritual figures and gurus. Osho, Ramesh Balsekar, U.G. Krishnamurti, Papaji, Andrew Cohen a.o.. And unlike the docile Premananda Facetten des Erwachens: Kostbare Dialoge mit 16 indischen Meistern über die Lehre von Sri Ramana Maharshi and Europäische Meister: Einzigartige Dialoge mit 14 Europäischen Meistern über Sri Ramana Maharshis Lehre Wer bin ich? Madhukar is not affraid to raise serious questions and objections. Forcing many of these well-known beacons to reflect deeply over their teachings.
Rather surprisingly and disappointedly the book ends with Thompson embracing the rather rigid traditional advaita vendanta. But perhaps this suits his intellectual disposition.
Anyway an essential collection of deep and profound spiritual meetings.
