Ways in Mystery: Explorations in Mystical Awareness and Life

by

Ways in Mystery: Explorations in Mystical Awareness and Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ranging over the world's great mystical traditions, the essays reflect on the teachings of such masters as Meister Eckhart, Nagarjuna, St. John of the Cross, Shankara, Dogen, Plotinus, Chao-chu, Tanzen and Nietzsche, among others.

Synopsis:

Ways in Mystery presents a rare occurrence in the field of religious publishing. In this boisterous field, few original voices are heard in our time. Luther Askelands first book is a signal event for, in these essays, we hear the voice of a modern prophet and the “way of unknowing” — a path to wisdom that is not easy to initiate, difficult to pursue, and returns, time and again, to the place of beginnings. Askeland receives the wisdom of the past for his profound meditations on the possibilities and pitfalls of a mystical life in the midst of our contemporary world. Drawing from the teachings of Indian saints such as Shankara, of Christian mystics such as Meister Eckhart and St. John of the Cross, and from Buddhist sages such as Zen Masters Dogen and Tanzen. A thoughtful, wise, and illuminating guide, Askeland carefully and systematically describing the inherent limitations of linguistic mapping within our ordinary experience, revealing the higher mystical states of awareness, to take us beyond words and philosophical concepts.
