I highly recommend buying this book as it is an indespensable guide in the practice of all meditators. We should all know our inner workings and find God within ourselves so that we can share the love with everyone.
Only after we learn to love ourselves can we love others and begin to impact the world in a positive way. May this book and information below assist you on the path.
