Mine was Lobsang Rampa's (pen name of Cyril Henry Hoskin) 'The Third Eye' published in Britain in 1956 - the author wrote/channelled books with paranormal and occult themes.
"T.Lobsang Rampa was preordained to be a Tibetan priest, a sign from the stars that could not be ignored. When he left his wealthy home to enter the monastery, his heart was filled with trepidation, with only a slight knowledge of the rigorous spiritual training and physical ordeal that awaited him . . . .
This is his story, a hauntingly beautiful and deeply inspiring journey of awakening within Chakpori Lamasery, the temple of Tibetan medicine. It is a moving tale of passage through the mystic arts of astral projection, crystal gazing, aura deciphering, meditation, and more. It is a spiritual guide of enlightenment and discovery through the opening of the all-powerful, the all-knowing."
The seven-book series I'm now reading is Transylvania by Radu Cinamar which has led me back to Tibet and via Romania and the Bucegi Mountains. Penny Kelly recommended reading the series, and I'm interspersing Transylvania with her latest, 'The Revival - Path to a New Earth/New Human'.
Have you charted your journey to awakening from the beginning to now?
