    "Very good introduction to the power of kriya yoga."

    Enjoyed the book overall. First quarter of the book is slow and did not know what to expect, but slowly got my attention and could not stop listening to it. Definitely worth while.

    "Timeless Wisdom"

    This is one of the best books I've read and surely ever written. I'm amazed at its timelessness and was captivated by the colorful story. I immediately listened to it a second time to really soak in its profound, yet subtle, gems of wisdom.

    "Life Changing"

    This book is powerful on its own I'm sure but with a strong meditation practice, the ideas and concepts come alive. I will definitely listen again in the future. The narration was beautiful
