Product description


I think this is a most valuable work for the serious aspirant who wants to understand the weakness of Neo-Advaita as opposed to the traditional teachings of the great Sages. I agree with the summary of your findings and wish the book well. I am sure it will assist many who are becoming increasingly confused and disillusioned by Neo Advaita, and may turn to the traditional approach. --Alan Jacobs, President of the Ramana Foundation UK and author of numerous books, including "The Principal Upanishads and "The Bhagavad Gita".

It deals with the issues of path and no path, doing and non-doing, appearance and reality, the qualifications necessary for enlightenment, the need for a teacher and other important topics of interest to sincere seekers. I heartily recommend this book. --James Swartz, teacher and author of numerous books, including Meditation: An Inquiry into the Self and Self Knowledge , a commentary on Shankara s Atmabodha .

I welcome Dennis Waite s book Enlightenment: the path through the jungle as a breath of fresh air amidst the quagmire of new books on neo-Advaita. Finally, someone has done their homework, and made the effort to create powerful distinctions about what Advaita is and what it isn t. So many are hungry for truth, yet so very few are willing to pay the price. Dennis Waite offers necessary help to sincere seekers who wish to learn how to discern between the diamond-like brilliance of authentic Advaita-Vedanta, from the rhinestone approaches represented by popular neo-Advaita. --Mariana Caplan, Ph.D., author of Halfway Up the Mountain" and Do You Need a Guru?"


What is enlightenment? What is it not? This book exposes the myths and defines this misused term once and for all. Which teaching methods will get you there? And which will not? This book explains how the traditional methods work and why the modern, Western approaches are most unlikely to. The clearest book that has ever been written on the subject of enlightenment, it provides a detailed examination of the satsang phenomenon (and its more extreme, neo-Advaita variant), contrasting these approaches with the traditional methods passed down from teacher to disciple for over a thousand years. It indicates what is needed in the way of preparation and path in order to gain enlightenment, given some modern teachers' statements to the effect that there is 'no person' and 'nothing to do'. With a Foreword by Dr. Greg Goode, philosophical counsellor and one of the most knowledgeable people in the world on the subject of non-duality.
