This book encapsulates simply and quietly the profound strength of mantra meditation. It takes the reader from the source, through the story of its origin, explaining some of the knowledge behind this path of meditation, and on to the actual practice.

For those who have already embarked on a regular practice of mantra meditation as described in the book, it is a perfect pocket companion – a reminder, a renewal and a refresher to their practice.

For those who may be thinking of starting to meditate, this book is a beautiful introduction to anyone interested in this particular form of mantra meditation.

This book on meditation is simple and profound. The science of meditation is explained systematically with reference to quotations from Śrī Śāntānanda Sarasvatī. It is a most useful guide for those practising mantra meditation.

This is an excellent book for anyone wishing to begin to grasp the practical application of the genuine enneagram. It deals with the enneagram that first appears in the teachings of G.I. Gurdjieff.

Tinky Brass clearly sets out the laws of three and seven and gives insight into the nature and behaviour of the three worlds. The descending octave of the Lord’s Prayer was a revelation, and the ascending octave gave clear and practical interpretations that can be applied to the Work in everyday life. I use ideas from this book in my own work with people suffering with alcoholism and drug addiction, especially the chapter on the Mi-Fa interval, Holy Denying. This is with people who have had no contact with either the work or with the enneagram and yet the ideas are met with understanding and indeed enthusiasm. To me, this is all the recommendation necessary as it brings the enneagram to life.

Not only is this book useful in a practical sense, but it is also warm and generous. Tinky gives many examples from his own experience that are often inspiring and always clarifying. I have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending this book to any serious student of the Work and the Enneagram.
