Easy Death is forwarded by the renowned near death expert, Kenneth Ring, and there is a spellbinding essay on death by the great yoga scholar, Georg Feuerstein. Feuerstein's essay is worth the buy alone. Also, the blurbs on the back page are very impressive. Who was this guy?
A quick google search led me to the online book, Stripping the Gurus. This was a crazy character indeed! However, it is admitted in that Franklin Jones was some sort of genius, that is, in the early years. Apparently, Franklin Jones had resonance and gravitas and before the 1980's, this man was praised as being an Avatar by people like Allan Watts and Ken Wilber. This is very mysterious and very odd. They say that the early Franklin Jones was the real deal but then he declared himself an avatar! This isn't a good move.
So I bought this book, just to see for myself.
When he became Adi Da Samraj, he re-wrote all his books and ruined the message. So I bought an old second hand first edition of Easy Death and WOW!!!!
I bought a 1983 edition of the book, and, I have to admit, this Franklin Jones guy was a very smart operator and if he got knocked over by a bus in 1983, then his name would be spoken in the same breath as Ramana Mahaeshi's!
So this edition is worth your time!
