Om Yoga Meditation uniquely touches on the spiritual power and lasting positive effects of the mantra Om. ...this book is the perfect guide with theory and techniques to help you along the way. -Spirituality & Health Magazine
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.'"
I have been at this sort of thing for quite some time (40-some years in my case); in all of the reading I have done, I have never come across not only a work on a particular spiritual practice so thoroughly explained in terms of "theory," so to speak, or scriptural validation, but which also gives a complete and easily implemented guide to the mechanics of the practice itself. ...I cannot recommend this book enough for anyone who truly desires to get to the heart of meditation practice. -Robert Arconti
This book is literally a course of its own, complete with lessons, practices and experiments to help improve your life and ease your struggle, regardless of your background. I highly recommend it. -Carl McGowan
The feeling one gets from reading Om Yoga Meditation is like watching a series of glowing lanterns floating silently toward you in the dark, on a deep and powerful current. -Reverend Gerry Nangle
About the Author
Abbot George Burke (Swami Nirmalananda Giri) is the founder and director of the Light of the Spirit Monastery (Atma Jyoti Ashram) in Cedar Crest, New Mexico, USA. In his many pilgrimages to India, he had the opportunity of meeting some of India’s greatest spiritual figures, including Swami Sivananda of Rishikesh and Anandamayi Ma. During his first trip to India he was made a member of the ancient Swami Order by Swami Vidyananda Giri, a direct disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda, who had himself been given sannyas by the Shankaracharya of Puri, Jagadguru Bharati Krishna Tirtha. In the United States he also encountered various Christian saints, including Saint John Maximovich of San Francisco and Saint Philaret Voznesensky of New York. He was ordained in the Liberal Catholic Church (International) to the priesthood on January 25, 1974, and consecrated a bishop on August 23, 1975. For many years Abbot George has researched the identity of Jesus Christ and his teachings with India and Sanatana Dharma, including Yoga. It is his conclusion that Jesus lived in India for most of his life, and was a yogi and Sanatana Dharma missionary to the West. After his resurrection he returned to India and lived the rest of his life in the Himalayas. He is the author of a number of books on meditation and practical spiritual life, including Om Yoga Meditation: Its Theory and Practice, The Dhammapada for Awakening, The Gospel of Thomas for Awakening, May a Christian Believe in Reincarnation?, and The Christ of India: The Story of Saint Thomas Christianity. He has written extensively on these and other topics at www.OCOY.org/

I cannot recommend this book enough for anyone who truly desires to get to the heart of meditation practice. Abbot George is truly a great soul, both for unreservedly passing these wonderful teachings on to us and for his profound understanding.
Once again, Burke’s conversational ease takes not only a complicated and misunderstood topic, but an ancient teaching, and brings it into the comprehensible, the understandable, and into the light of the layman’s mind while opening that mind to the vast and yet undiscovered potential of the union with the All. Rather it may be a “rediscovery,” shall we say, because as Burke clearly demonstrates through the ancient writings of books like the “Umpanishads” and the “Bhagavad Gita,” we have always had this union. Yet as we come into this physical realm it is forgotten. It is the purpose of life to make our way back to the Supreme Self, the God-consciousness. This book explains and teaches that forgotten way through the ancient science and practice of yoga. But this is not a yoga of spandex pants, yoga abs and cute little studios. These teachings pre-date historical records and are of a highly traditional and spiritual manner. This is perhaps yoga unlike anything experienced in the contemporary commercial market. This is the real thing; the path to enlightenment and to All that Is. Sound complicated? It is not. It is simple really, it is Om.
Note: I highly recommend this book to yoga and meditation instructors to further assist the student in a deeper experience.
After 50 years of studying metaphysical practices, this 160 page treatise on the value of Om Yoga Meditation would have to be my number one favorite book. It is also edited impeccably for structure and grammar with many many direct quotes and references about the value of Om Meditation from indisputable masters of the spiritual arts and techniques. I also appreciate how Abbot George reiterates the value and power of Om Meditation and also how he gently and easily glides you into its worthwhile and daily practice. The benefits are infinite! Please read!
