5.0 out of 5 stars A Modern Advaita Classic !, 25 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Back to the Truth: 5000 Years of Advaita (Paperback)
Why is this work so important for today's Advaitic (any truly inspired) seeker?

'Viveka' in sanskrit means the ability to objectively discriminate and reason - very important for the serious seeker of Truth. Dennis Waite's work reflects that - deep maturity of a voice of toil and patience, of deep felt earnestness to uncover for you in the most honest and uncompromising manner, the principles of Advaita. If you are done exhausting the interest over the 'new-age' watered down pseudo advaitic influences (Tony Parsons, Jeff Foster, Unmani and a host of other youtube gurus), and find that it is time to go for the kill, the real deal, consider this work. You will see the need for the right knowledge, which is so easily dismissed in this age of instant-nirvana with callous statements like 'a path implies future - a mind trap'. If 'Nothing ever happens' was the starting point from your youtube/satsang guru/book. If 'Stop seeking Now,cos now is all there is' is what you would have been told. And if you persisted , you may have been trumped with questions like 'To whom is this seeking seen?'.

Hopefully you have made use of those messages only to keep your interest alive. And if you really want to respect that deep desire to uncover the truth, get real.This book helps here. Come prepared, bring along your trusted old ally - patience, oil the gentle lamp of single pointed desire - to know the Truth,sharpen the pencil of reason, and make use of this wonderful companion to guide you along.

But if 'peace of mind','kundalini fireworks', 'stress busting', and 'stillness in the now', 'meditation' is what you are after, you need to look elsewhere.
