The Book of Enlightened Masters: Western Teachers &hellip by Andrew Rawlinson
1 of 2 people found the following review helpful
This balanced and comprehensive survey of the strange and multi-faceted jewel that is Eastern spirituality as taught in the West is a must-have for anyone looking for a broad perspective. It has helped me clarify a number of issues and understand where teachers are coming from when they promote a particular type of practice.
The work is unique and thus difficult to compare to anything else published in this field, as the work involved dwarfs anything previously published. Good stuff.
Meeting the Buddhas: A Guide to Buddhas, Bodhisatt&hellip by Vessantara
8 of 8 people found the following review helpful
I started reading this for the visualisation techniques around the Mandala of the Five Buddhas, but soon found there was much more to it than that.
Vessantara demystifies the area of Tantric medidation and visualisation, while making it clear this is no substitute for one-to-one initiation by an adept. This is a bit like having a map for an inhospitable area. A guide/translator is still needed to shepherd one through the various obstacles that may emerge.
Suitable, in my view, for someone who has spent time deepening their solitary meditation and feel they want to spend more time developing the emotional and intellectual connections in their spiritual life.
Guarding the Three Treasures by Daniel Reid

Mr Reid has the gift of being able to present complex issues in a simple way. Through this book, I gained a clearer understanding than ever before of the linkages between seemingly unrelated areas such as the food I eat and the results I gain from my spiritual practise.
This is a book that can be used on many different levels, whether to simply improve health holistically or to make progress with Taoist spiritual aims.
