Wonderful. Highly recommended. Quite definitely the BEST book I have read on this subject and by far its clearest expression; beautifully written and produced. I cannot rate it highly enough; I am totally enthused.
"Sannyassa is not just an Indian tradition, but a universal tradition which represents the original thoughts of humanity." - NOT a religion, but the spiritual thought of humanity. In my view it is not necessary to believe in the whole philosophy - the "soul", for example, seeking to be one with the "supreme soul". This ancient way of life is from BEFORE religion, before what religion has become - (the worship of deities)and truly can be embraced to bring order and purpose to life.
