We are all on a journey of psychological and spiritual growth whether we are aware of it or not. Our journey will develop our consciousness (‘soul’) and provide us with ‘tools’ needed to deal with the inevitable existential dissatisfaction or suffering each one of us experiences. This book conveniently provides the orientation needed for this most important journey of our lives, the spiritual journey of awakening.
The author’s approach to teaching the World Religions is unique. He teaches that virtually all religions are either dualistic paths of salvation (where we are separate from God) or nondual paths of liberation (where we are part of the oneness of the Absolute). Students and audiences have found this view exciting and clarifying compared to otherwise obscure concepts. Such clarity can facilitate the psychological and spiritual growth of the seeker.
How to Use This Book: It is best to read Part I (Journey) first; it is a ‘platform’ that gives context and clarity to the specific religions that follow. Parts II, III and IV do not need to be read sequentially; they contain the various religions and paths which can be selectively chosen.Biografía del autor:
Soon after completing his MBA at the University of California at Berkeley in 1953 Alex was karmically introduced to the unity traditions of Vedanta of India and the Zen of Japan that ultimately changed the course of his life: eventually they led to a decision to teach whereby he earned another bachelor and master degree in psychology (UCB 1976 and SF State 1978). So instead of a lifetime in the business world he spent 10 years teaching economics and 30 years teaching psychology and comparative religion at the Peralta Community College District in the San Francisco Bay Area! In addition to teaching Alex has been an active lecturer in California and abroad: India, Mauritius, Frankfurt, and Turkey. In addition, he has traveled extensively to the sources of the religious traditions and spiritual paths that he teaches especially to India where, during thirteen visits, he lived and visited various Ashrams and spiritual centers. Other travel has been to Africa, China, Europe, and the Near East (Israel, and Egypt). Alex is a long time member of the Vedanta Society of Berkeley, the Ahimsa Society of Berkeley and a life member of the Theosophical Society. He is past president of the local Theosophical Society in Oakland. Alex is married to retired Ankara University Counseling Psychology Professor Fusun Akkoyun and lives in both Turkey and Berkeley, California.
