Foreword

In this world of constant change, apparently accelerated in our time by unprecedented scientific and technological achievements, exaltation of man and his material progress is the outstanding theme. It is to our "supremacy" and ever increasing control over the forces of nature, to our standards of physical existence and social and cultural pursuits that we continue, more than ever, to devote all our thoughts and efforts. We see, and perhaps strive only to see and enjoy but one side of the picture, as it were-the picture of the phenomenal sensual world.

Great saints and masters of all ages have pointed to the other side of the picture-the reality not subject to change-and in their tender mercy, have offered those that would care to follow their lead to show the way in a positive and practical manner, which no mere reading of scriptures could equal. They have proclaimed the true supremacy of man as being the highest form of creation, having alone the capacity to make contact with his Creator, if he would, and solving the eternal mystery during his lifetime.

This book is about the philosophy of the Saints, about the inner path along which the soul must travel to reach its ultimate destiny, about the indispensability of a living Master and about the duties of a true disciple. It is meant only for the honest seeker, that is, one who is interested in pure spiritual uplift in the literal sense without any thought of physical and material benefits. Sant Mat is not a new religion; it is a philosophy which gives practical shape to the truth common to all contemporary religions.

Peter Fripp, the author of this book, whom I greatly respect and admire as a friend, has very ably presented all aspects of this philosophy for the guidance mainly of Western readers. I hope they will not fail to profit by it.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
