Cheryl Bruedigam, Author of What If We Are the Angels? says of this book: "Completely engrossing, if you allow it. I gobbled up every word once I gave it my all. Om Yoga Meditation is not a book to be read lightly but is most certainly a book to be read by anyone seeking the way to enlightenment. ...Allow yourself to immerse slowly into the flow of wordly waters as Burke leads you from the mysterious to the achievable: across 'the bridge to immortality.'"
"The Holy word, Om, bestows the highest state" (Yoga Vashishtha 5:54)
"This is the bridge to immortality. May you be successful in crossing over to the father shore beyond darkness" (Mundaka Upanishad 2.2.5,6).
