Editorial Reviews

Review

Blue Truth is a brilliant book, absolutely gorgeous. Ancient wisdom on sacred sexuality, freed of historical and cultural trappings, glows from these pages in exhilarating, luminous prose. Deida brilliantly lays bare the hidden psychology of feminine and masculine and offers clear instructions for tapping into our deepest core and achieving true harmony through sexual intimacy. I feel that Deida has reached a new level of poetic genius in his writing, and his understanding of feminine psychology astounds me. I am just knocked out by this book.”

Miranda Shaw, Ph.D., author of Passionate Enlightenment: Women in Tantric Buddhism

“David Deida is in the dynamic living oral tradition of maverick spiritual teachers who, like free-jazz musicians, can riff directly on Reality, outside of established forms. Mark my words: in a future that I hope is not too far off, David Deida’s original Western Dharma will be widely known as one of the most sublime and accessible expressions of the essence of spiritual practice that is freely offered today.”

Lama Surya Das, bestselling author of Awakening the Buddha Within

“The openness, the love! What lively new language David Deida finds for the unsayable!”

Coleman Barks, author of The Essential Rumi

It has really helped to change my life by realizing just how closed off I was/am to the world.

This is a truly amazing book. This is the second David Deida book I have read. Six months ago I started my first year of law school, in a new city where I knew nobody. I was really lost for a long time and hit a new low. I eventually took the initiative to do several things to improve my situation, and this book was one of them. It has really helped to change my life by realizing just how closed off I was/am to the world. Change is a slow process, of course, but this book really helped and continues to help. The advice is solid, true, and open. There are no false pretenses in this book; no ego; just insight and something that offers to help.

Also, Deida's writing style is very beautiful and sincere, which makes the book that much more helpful.

This book may change your life. I carried it around with me to read soundbites throughout the day for months at a time- after I'd read it cover to cover. I find myself quoting from this book for people who are needing some inspiration or to just give someone a little "medicine" where I think that they might need it. Beautiful and poignant.

I'd like to respond to the only "one star" review given this book. If you notice, it is NOT a book review. It is a character assassination from someone who is obviously bitter about a teacher of David Deida's. I could care less where Deida learned and experienced the concepts of this book, the fact is that they work, they are beautiful- yes, controversial- but still beautiful. I've found my feminine essence where I didn't know it existed. In my lover, I now know what it feels like to be a woman. I did NOT know this before discovering the works of Deida. I hope that you read this book.

Yes, Blue Truth is the same as Naked Buddhism. New publisher, new title. Whatever the title, this is an amazing book. I especially liked the first half as it contains insights and information that I haven't read in other Deida books.

I bought David Deida's book Blue Truth yesterday, and finished it this afternoon. I am so moved by this book. It expressed things I know deep in myself so well, with such clarity, brilliance and poetry. Then as it moved into dealing with Love and Sex, the epiphanies and illuminations became so frequent and so intensely radiant I really feel changed, as if i have received a real transmission.

In reading Blue Truth, things I have struggled with for a very long time fell into place so beautifully, so vibrantly, in ways it would take me a long time to convey.

  My deep and heartfelt gratitude and respect to David Deida for creating this book.

What a delight to read a man's perspective on the feminine and have it resonate so clearly. This was recommended by one of my spiritual "brothers" and I found it to be a sensitive, aware portrayal of the masculine/feminine dynamic - at least as far as it goes. I'm sure he says other things elsewhere, and I'll be reading some of them. It's a book for women to better understand men, and vice versa. What a huge contribution that is!

When LOML (love of my life) abruptly ended our forever-and-ever soul-matedness after 3 wonderful years, I knew I was facing a life lesson for letting go. (Being 64 years old, I had some perspective.) But how? How to let go of the plans, the promises, the dreams, the ties of family and friends? Thank heavens, something made me pick up Blue Truth, which turned out to be my roadmap for letting go while keeping my heart open. I read it very slowly - like a chapter a week, sometimes rereading the chapter during the week - so I could digest its wisdom. It was exactly what I needed. Thanks to Deida's Blue Truth and Gary Zukav's Soul Stories, I moved through the disappointment without becoming angry or bitter. David and Gary helped me feel positive about having loved LOML, AND about having it behind me. When friends who don't know ask how LOML and I are doing, they are mystified when I say - with a smile - "After 3 wonderful years, it ended as abruptly as it started, and we've gone our separate ways and are both doing very well." Best of all, my attitude helped both of our families deal with the change of direction. I will forever love LOML for having loved me, and for having left me. Lesson learned. On to the next class in Earth School!

I cried through the first few chapters. I thought the book was concise and yet really powerful. I've read a lot of David Deida's books, and while the message is absolutely stunning, the writing is sometimes confusing. I feel this one is very clear, very much to the point and very deep. Blue Truth could very well be one of these books that I end up reading over and over again, until I feel it is embedded into my very being. The experience that I get reading it is really strong and life altering.
