Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Daskalos, a Greek Christian mystic of "unimaginable psychic power," and his disciple, Kostas, are the subjects of this credulity-straining report. Based in Cyprus, they communicate with an archangel who once lived on Earth as St. John, author of the Gospel. Able to perform amazing cures and undertake out-of-body travels (here called exomatosis), they drone on endlessly, about Absolute Beingness (God), our inner selves as Holy Monads, reincarnation, karma, chakras (body energy centers). Markides, a University of Maine sociology professior, states that all names in the book are fictitious, which does not inspire confidence. Nor does the appearance of characters such as the Blond Magus, a Macedonian wizard who claims he developed his powers in a Tibetan monastery.

This book is one of the many that Kyriako's wrote, the first book is about the teacher Atteshlis I actually met The Magus of Strovolos a few day before the Cyprus Coup and the invasion of Cyprus by the Turks in 1974 we were on holiday with my family and I saw him heal my younger cousin who was only 18 months old I was 14 at the time. He had never met her ever as she was from South Africa and he told us she had 5 clots on her brain and he dissolved the 3 and she was left with minimal damages and today she lives a normal life (the doctors could not understand how this happened and said it was a miracle). That was the reason why my mother had brought her on holiday with us to see her grandmother as the doctors had mentioned that she could die due to her problem, we the kids did not know about this and we found out from Atteshlis who was a very close friend of my Aunties. After this I read more and more about these happening and after reading these books my outlook to life has changed drastically.

If you are a left-brained trained cynic as I am (I am an attorney by trade) a book on the non-material universe that "adds up" on the rational side is a joy and a delight. This is such a book. Markides explains things that I had not understood, and showed me possibilties I had not entertained. Additionally, because the narrator of the tales told to us is, as was Casteneda in the Don Juan books, outside the discipline he is reporting, we see though his initially skeptical eyes, and and hear thouigh his "can this be true?" ears. Thus are we led to feel secure that events have unfolded as they are reported, they can be believed, and may well be part of a new reality we can, ourselves, adopt. It gave me much to "chew on", expanded my thinking, and shines like a small jewel on my recollection. I will, indeed, read more of Markides.

Loved it! This is one of the few books that has changed everything for me (In a good way). It will change your life and help you grow spiritually if you read it with an open heart and apply the wisdom to your own life. The other two books in the series are also fantastic. God Bless.

For those who seek Truth and earnestly desire to deepen their wisdom around supraconsciousnes and dimensions beyond three-dimensional gross matter, this is a must read. God is love-- a divine concept understood by the sages, mystics, shaman and religious who have transcended the limitations of knowledge and exist in the "knowing" realm.

Most important book I have ever read. If you are someone who seriously wonders and question big life themes, you will find no better than the information Kyriacos has shared from Kostas and Daskalos who are truly wise men. I have read and re-read over years as some of the info I found hard to grasp at first. Wonderful, wonderful book. I can't say enough.
