This is one book that caused quite a spiritual-stir in 1939 when it was first published in France. Johnson had his racial views (those of the 'civilized world' of the day and quite prejudiced) and in later years these comments were edited out by the Bea group. I purchased this dilapidated cover 1st edition because I wanted to SEE EXACTLY what was removed--besides the racial slurs, i wanted to see if spiritual things were 'revised' to better reflect the yogic particular group he followed. I also wanted to compare the 'plaigerism' of Paul Twirtchell in the 1960's--as he (published by Eckankar, the religion he started) has been accused of plaigerizing this book verbatim for paragraph after paragraph--and I wanted to SEE the original edition, which David Lane, his main detractor who researched this, stated he used as source material.

The book itself is an excellent treatise on the yoga of the Sound and Light--which Twitchell lifted for his soul travel Religion of the Light and Sound--Eckankar. Or, the sufi word: Ek ONG Kar.
THIS BOOK IS A CLASSIC AND WORTH READING if you can get around the racial slurs and see the light in it! Those are gone in later editions... It makes you smile at how the world has changed--racially at least!
Will let you know how it goes!

I ordered this book because it was advertised as the 1939 edition. It arrived and was the 1977 edition and the book was in bad shape. There were a few pages printed crooked. Almost looks like the book was put together. Not happy.

Am still looking for the original 1939 if anyone can lead me in the right direction.. THANK YOU !

This book will feel like answers to questions you haven't asked, and like knowledge you have always held being confirmed. I have bought ten of these to date, lending is better done as a gift.
