Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Harvey, who has studied under Hindu, Tibetan Buddhist, and Christian spiritual teachers and written several translations-interpretations of the Sufi mystical poet Rumi, has been a spokesperson for Mother Meera, an Indian woman whose followers believe she is an avatar (divine manifestation). But Harvey has broken with her and renounced the idea of spiritual gurus. In this book, he discusses manifestations of the Divine Mother or feminine principle in Hindu, Sufi, Buddhist, and Christian teachings. He believes the next 20 years will determine the fate of life on earth and that "a new spiritual age is potentially dawning for humankind...in which the divine could be present intimately, normally, consciously, in all things and activities...through the grace of the Mother." Recommended for those with eclectic spiritual and environmental interests.-Carolyn M. Craft, Longwood Coll., Farmville, Va.
