Editorial Reviews

Review

At a meditation retreat I was leading at Harbin Hot Springs, a participant handed me your free book of spiritual poetry, Gifts with No Giver. From the moment I opened it, my heart soared into the realms of Silence that your words invited. Tears of truth touched my soul. I have so wanted to savor each poem that I have been reading only one every few days. I love squeezing the juice out of each poem! Thank you for the depths that you have traveled inside yourself that allows your words to thrust me inward. --Peter Rengel, Spiritual Retreat Leader and author of Living Life in Love and Seeds of Light

If you are looking for a book of poetry to help light your spiritual path, this book will be a good choice. The subtitle of the book, A Love Affair with Truth, describes well the theme of this collection. Nirmala's depth of insight is well represented.

Nirmala has the courage to put his innermost self out there for all to see. By doing so he encourages and inspires all of us to continue our inquiry no matter what we discover about ourselves. He makes it clear that all is grist for the mill and that the recognition of unity is a personal experience often beyond description in words. Yet, at times he transcends this limitation and synthesizes mind and heart with a most gentle... loving kindness. I would highly recommend this work to anyone with a sincere interest in self-realization... as Nermala says, "where all is merged in silent wonder."

I first picked up this gem of a book about a decade ago, around the time I was discovering Nirmala and his teachings in the non-dual tradition. Here Nirmala shares his beautiful experiences of Awakening through his own unique heartfelt words. Enlightened poetry not unlike other mystical offerings like the Songs of Kabir or Lao Tzu's sayings. I continue to find fresh inspiration whenever I open these pages, and with an open heart dare to let myself be touched.

Format: Paperback
Whether you have been seeking Christ Consciousness, self realization, the Tao, or enlightenment for what may seem like forever, or if you are just beginning to pursue these ends, this book is for you. Nirmala invites us to take a look at the space that has been overlooked, to see what is obvious, and to bring the search to a successful conclusion in this lifetime.

I have experienced so much love and joy reading these poems. I don't read them quickly; I take my time to savor and feel their depth. I'll find a favorite, and then another. There is so much love and truth in them. I will cherish this book forever.

I love this book. It is sitting beside my meditation chair and is often what I choose to use as a springboard for my meditation. I read a page and then use the gems offered in my meditations.
