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.Read more ›
I would encourage anyone interested in the inner life to experience this wonderful book -- and through it the mind of Sunyata.
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.
