Nifty artwork David, where did you find it?
Also a note on the new book; the middle section on the deep samadhi that sees many buddhas makes up half the book.
No place special; just wikipedia. :tongue:

Does he descend from a particular religious/spiritual lineage?
It is mostly Hindu - based. I don't believe he followed any specific Hindu school or tradition, but just in general, his ideas are mostly Hindu.

Lalibela, Ethiopia

It came close a few times. An...
