Synopses & Reviews
Open to the Source is a comprehensive collection of the writings that best convey Douglas Harding's message and method. Presented against a series of unique photographs, this wide-ranging compilation provides the reader with clear access to the state of being that Harding equates with the Self of Vedanta and the no-self of Buddhism. The implication of this simple and wonderful truth is that, when seen from the correct perspective, we are not what we ordinarily appear to be. Clearly, our appearance is limited. But is our reality? We have the freedom to realize our unlimited nature right now; it is up to us to look.
About the Author
Douglas Harding is a highly regarded philosopher and spiritual teacher and the author of many books, including the contemporary classic "On Having No Head." His unique method of awakening to the Source, of seeing "who" we really are, is original, effective, direct, and practical. Harding's inspired approach is conversant with the spirit and conclusions of modern science and is affirmed by the immediate evidence of our senses rather than by speculative belief. The method of direct perception-of seeing ourselves as we truly are-as taught by Harding for more than fifty years, is increasingly recognized by people the world over as the new face of spirituality.
