“Both profound and practical, Wake Up Now guides the reader through the intricacies of awakening as only someone who has walked the walk themselves can do. The clarity and compassion it offers are both rare and welcome.”
--Adyashanti, author of The Impact of Awakening and Emptiness Dancing

It just seemed like a lot of hard work to simply be what I always was.
His teachings are a beautiful amalgam of the scholarly and erudite, the poetic and eloquent, and most importantly, they are clear and simple.
For those who are ernest about true awakening and post awakened life, "Wake Up Now" is an essential guide book.
