Book review

In this highly entertaining and mesmerizing account of spiritual discovery, the reader is shown how that which we call 'True Nature' is not hidden away at a distant and inaccessible horizon but is actually our ever-present reality.
What we term 'Truth' is already living us, even as we search for it - what we term 'Iiberation' is what 'naturally remains', once the myth of self is finally outshone.
Drawing from a lifetime’s involvement with Tibetan Buddhism, Zen and Advaita Vedanta, the author presents us with a refreshingly spontaneous and intuitive perspective. An outlook wherein we finally recognise life not as a process of never-ending strife and entanglement but rather one of wonderful and unimaginable mystery - the art of living defined by the supreme art of Life and Being itself.
A hugely inspiring and contemporary guide for spiritual seekers.

“With this book, you want to retreat to a quiet place – to bathe undisturbed in the vastness and serenity the writing invokes.
Nicolas Rowe's words have the intrinsic authority of Zen. Both precise and evocative, the author skilfully addresses the many pitfalls, misconceptions, contradictions and paradoxes of our lives. There were passages where I had to laugh out loud when the absurdities of normal life were brought into full light, there were many moments of profound and lasting release……..
This is a truly remarkable book. It opens one window after another, giving way to views all the way to the horizon…….
Jurgen Brandt, contributing editor ‘The Link’ magazine
(Krishnamurti Information Network)

“An absolutely remarkable account of the Journey; a journey of mysteries, conflicts, shocks, surprises and revelations……..
“Face-to-face with Oneself”, as Patanjali had described it, Nicolas transcends the zig-zags constructed by various known spiritual paths and discovers a thought-free state, beyond definitions and strategies.
