One afternoon 1998, I was walking along Santa Monica Boulevard in Santa Monica and I saw a table set-up on the sidewalk outside a small bookstore. One title featured a color photograph of a man who I'd never seen before, but who I could at once see was a communicator of the nature of reality. That day I picked up a copy of Sunyata: The Life & Sayings of a Rare-born Mystic. The book introduced me to a person who -- how do I describe it? -- who was stress-free. Easy to be with. Quiet. Harbouring nothing. Separate from nothing. Strong in his knowing and presence and in his confessions about what is true; strong in his pointing out of "egojies," but always seeing/knowing/being or "awaring" the Self that is the reality of egojies.

Though I know Sunyata only through books and through brief discussions with Betty Camhi, who is the book's editor and who was a friend of Sunyata, I feel close to him, if that's possible. I can understand what editor Betty Camhi says in the Preface to Dancing with the Void: "After listening over a period of several years to ... questions and answers, I found myself becoming less interested in the verbal exchange and more interested in the silence and radiance that was emanating from this 'rare born mystic.' He had a healing presence."

But that's not the book I'm reviewing.

I'm reviewing Dancing with the Void, which is another book by Sunyata and co-edited by Betty Camhi, who co-edited the first book. This book is longer and better organized, but not necessarily a better or lesser introduction to the nature of Sunyata himself. In this book, as in the first one, you experience the silence of Sunyata. The silence comes through in the photographs (what first draw me to him) and his words.

Reading the book, "Dancing with the Void" was a rare experience! Although it is clearly written and not over-long, it took me rather a long time to get through the book because reading it allowed me to touch the mind of Sunyata, and I kept going into samadi. Sometimes several times per page. Sunyata, it seems, is truely a "rare-born mystic" and the clear and respectful editing by Camhi and Rai allows one to experience his presence in a most dynamic way.
I would encourage anyone interested in the inner life to experience this wonderful book -- and through it the mind of Sunyata.

Remarkably pure, this man Sunyata, in his every expression. He's living the essence of what we're all looking for.

One of the best books I have ever read. To connect with Sunyata's LOVE overflow is perhaps one of the most enriching and fulfilling experiences you can live as you realize who you are.

Miguel Serrano is a hard nut to crack. In his travels through India, Serrano meets many swami's and mystics. A mystic himself, Miguel Serrano sees through the pantomime.

However, in one seen, Serrano writes that Sunyata walks through the door, with his little dog, and Miguel Serrano innerstands. Miguel Serrano says that a great Emptiness was there. Sunyata, or the brother of silence, communicated in silence, like Ramana Maharshi.

Here, ladies and gentleman, is One born enlightened and we are very lucky to have a book like this. This book is a treasure of wisdom. The funny thing is, when Sunyata mentions Ramana Maharshi, there isn't the reverence and the bringing out of the handkerchief. Rather, when Sunyata mentions Sri Ramana Maharshi, it is on an equal footing. After all, the jnani sees no difference, for all is One.
