M.G. Hawkingabout this book: Enlightenment . . . what is it? In the vast wilderness of the deep Himalayan mountains, some forty years ago, explorer M.G. Hawking had a personal experience that may elucidate that question.
"The light grows ever brighter and brighter; I open my eyes—I think—eyes open or closed makes no difference. I am in a vast sea of light, the entire universe is filled with and consists of an immense torrent of living light, and in it a vividness of life beyond all description, many magnitudes beyond what I have ever experienced. Gradually I notice that even within this dazzling brightness there are brighter areas; they are light, as there is nothing but light, yet they shine out even more intensely. By degrees I intuit that these are sources of some kind, through which the light and the life flow to the lower planes, the less developed awarenesses. Little by little, as I become more used to this stupendous reality, I begin to see that, in a different sense, even "I" am a focus in this great scheme, and that through this "I" of my Self, light flows to those who are still farther away—not from the light, for everything is part of this living light and nothing else exists—but farther from the recognition, realization, and experience of it."
This book reveals the entire extent of the author's experiences, the fabled setting, surrounding circumstances and fascinating people. Richly entertaining and delightfully mystical.
