The Mystery of all religious practice begins the moment one withdraws from the world and devotes oneself to asceticism. The esoteric practices that are followed in the quest for divinity generally remain secret and lost to the world. What is the path taken by the solitary? What are the ways to ecstasy? In his desire to answer these and other questions, author Daniel Odier immersed himself in the life and spiritual practices of Buddhist and Taoist monasteries throughout the Orient. Nirvana Tao is a window onto that world. Unlike most books written about Buddhist schools, it goes beyond philosophy to reveal actual teaching passed on by the sages who are the living expression of their tradition.
