Written after a lifelong study of the matter and based on experience, "Meditation" opens a new realm in human consciousness, to be appreciated by all those who believe that continuing spiritual and intellectual progress is needful to enrich our daily lives. Apart from providing material for study, the inestimable value of the book lies in the way in which it treats the subject from every possible angle and from an interdenominational approach. In this way, adherents of any religion or any philosophic system will not fail to find suitable themes and instructions. Initiatory teachings about the mind, its workings and possibilities; the origin and control of the thinking processes; human destiny and the true aim of life, are accompanied by a logical and scientific exposition of those exercises needed for the development of the meditative process.In brief, many will find Meditation the work for which they have been seeking and longing ever since they realized the necessity for taking their destiny into their own hands.

About the author (2005)

Mouni Sadhu is the mystical name taken by Dymitr Sudoski, a noted Occultist and Mystic of the first half of the Twentieth Century. The word "mouni" means silent and "sadhu" refers to a wandering holy man. The author has tried many paths on the route to self-realization, and is uniquely qualified to relate the truths in this book. Steeped in the Hermetic schools which abounded at the turn of the 19th century, then embracing the teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi and Vichara-yet never forgetting his Catholic faith-Mouni Sadhu successfully advances our mental synthesis and leads us to the door of True Self. Mouni's writing was based not only on rigorous study of the texts of his day, but on personal experience and diligent practice.
