Reviews on the Interactive Self-Discovery Series
"When someone asked Mother whether solitude was essential for meditation, she replied: "It is the old methods of yoga which demand silence and solitude. The yoga of tomorrow is to find the divine in work and in relation with the world." Don't we all want that? And that's what we get in Dhyana, Meditation for Inner Growth compiled into an easy-to-use manual for people who've so far only wondered about meditation - never got down to doing it
Mid Day Newspaper
"A series of beautifully produced little books on Dhyana, Abhaya, Karmayoga, Sadhana and other spiritual transformations
Dhyana is a practical instrument - a true guide at the end of our soon-to-disappear millennium. There is an action plan, a checklist, a definition of Dhyana, so that difficulties and unconscious blights may be overcome.
Also signs of recovery, progress and finally, self-mastery are provided to the reader."
