Is best not to try and read from face to posterior but rather just a couple of chapters then a break of a few days afore dipping once more.

The Gospel According to Acharya S is a collection of essays written in the 90s that delineate her philosophy on modern religion and how the marvelous tales and myths of the ancients have been twisted and perverted by those who seek to control masses of people. It is a very readable and interesting book that I cannot recommend strongly enough. I can tell you that her work has had a profound affect on how I view religion today. I think anyone interested even in the slightest about these topics will find this book, as well as her others, fascinating and well worth looking into.
Acharya's gospel offers alternative views to connecting to the cosmos, life energy or god if you prefer that word. Having read the Christ conspiracy and Sons of God I was quite surprised at the authors degree of spirituality.
I read the Christ conspiracy, Sons of God after returning from India in 1998. Both experiences changed my life. I visited many Buddhist pilgrimage sites only to discover the Buddha was likely a mythical character as well. I was a bit lost spiritually for a while but now I'm not. I've been set free accepting that religion is mythology. I no longer have to pick one mythology over another but rather draw the best parts from all of them.
Acharya ends her gospel with the 1st Ammendment to to the constitution describing it as the holy of holies. A secular, sacred document that both lets us practice or protects us from religion.
In conclusion Acharya tears apart religion into the mythology that it is, but at the same time points to such a positive humanist gospel.
