ISBN 0973467711, $16.00 paperback, $6.00 ebook
This is both a remarkable journey through sacred India, and a pilgrimage to the immortal self. After a transformative journey to the lands of his ancestors- Ireland, and Holland- the author embarks on what would become a life-altering visit to the spiritual centers of Hinduism, Sikhism, and Buddhism. With his ever inexorable determination to pursue his highest path, Jack Haas visits many holy areas within the subcontinent of India, and communes with numerous masters who have passed from this plane, but who remain in the subtle realm to assist mankind in its growth to freedom and eternity. These include Krishna, Guru Nanak, Ramana Maharishi, Christ, and Shiva himself. Within the pages of this book Haas describes his own evolution towards an expanded, unlimited consciousness as well as his unique relationships with many aspects of the divine feminine, including Mother Mary, Sophia, Parvati, Gauri, Kali, Saraswati, Durga, and Gaia. Haas' path eventually leads him to the absolute union of spirit and flesh, and to the inextinguishable Tao running through all of life.
