The Lord’s Prayer: An Eastern Perspective

“This book opens the door to Eastern religious and cultural practices in an attempt to shed light on the teachings implicit in The Lord’s Prayer. It uses simple analogies and inspiring anecdotes to unveil seemingly subtle and obscure Eastern concepts. It paves a path for Self-realization along the trail of The Lord’s Prayer, merging the precious teachings of Eastern and Western masters from the Buddha, Confucius, Lao Tzu, Mother Teresa, The Dalai Lama, and others. It is written for people who seek inspiration to enrich their lives, who desire greater mastery of Eastern philosophy, and who value information on practical spirituality” (from the preface).

“Our Father, our Mother, and our Great Tao, You are pure Consciousness in a state of infinite compassion and eternal bliss. As Above So Below, we can also attain such a state. We only have to seek the ‘I Am’ within and bring out our highest ideals. All our activities are subject to the ‘More Use Easier Use’ principle. We know that ‘practice makes perfect,’ but we need to be careful so as not to be entrapped by our undesirable habits” (from chapter 9)
