"For more than a half-century,
the spiritual philosophies of the East - from India to Japan,
from Yoga to Buddhism - have influenced our lives in the West.
This captivating anthology features fifty authors, among them
leading teachers, writers, and practitioners of the major spiritual
traditions rooted in Asia, who share their favorite teaching
stories and poems, along with the wisdom they gained from them.
This combination of ancient text and contemporary memoir brings
together simple "turning words" and the sustaining,
practical insights they inspire."

Reading the Soul and Mending It
"Cynthia Lester read my
soul, she did it over the phone. It was early morning in Arizona,
and evening in Israel - thousands of kilometers apart. Yet it
was clear she saw colorful images of the most secret things hidden
deep inside of me. As someone said, refering to her: 'She describes
the delicate procedures that play a role in the most inner dimensions
in my life'."
