"The tradition of the Himalayan sages in an unbroken chain extending for thousands of years, a living tradition that still exists today, undisturbed by the passage of time of other external changes. This tradition is not concerned with teaching that are limited to their applicability to any era of history or to any geographical region of the world - its entire emphasis is on the experience of that Truth which is eternal and universal. May all who read important book make progress on their spiritual journey."
