How to achieve a direct inner experience of your higher nature and the after-death state from which you originate and will return - Provides techniques for listening to the primordial sound within - Offers yoga and meditation techniques that are still little known in the West This book presents the spiritual teachings of Edward Salim Michael and the struggles that led to his enlightenment. Due to the circumstances of his birth, Michael had no education, no mother tongue, and no book learning when he was drafted at the age of 19 into the British Royal Air Force during World War II. Unable to think in words, Michael already sensed the "empty mind" sought after by meditation practitioners. After learning to read and write he became an accomplished classical composer in France. In 1949, after seeing a statue of a Buddha for the first time, he began a sustained meditation practice that led to a powerful awakening of his Buddha nature. Michael abandoned his career as a composer and went to India, the home of his maternal grandmother, where he lived for 7 years fully focused on his spiritual awakening. Michael's spiritual teachings reveal techniques of yoga and meditation that can open the door to one's higher nature and to directly experience the after-death state. Nada yoga (meditation on the inner sound) is one of the core techniques for this realization. There is a vast luminous consciousness already within us, but it is obscured by the clouds of our incessant thoughts. With sincerity, moral integrity, and inner vigilance--a law of attention--we can move beyond the promptings of our lower nature and break through the clouds of our ordinary mind to realize our own divine nature. Emphasizing inner attention and an awareness of attitude, Michael's practices can help aspirants make direct contact with the divine source each of us unknowingly carries deep within.
