Om Yoga Meditation: Its Theory and Practice by Abbot George Burke

A complete A to Z guide about how to meditate using the world's oldest and most proven method: Om Meditation. No initiation from gurus necessary.

Om Yoga and Meditation uniquely touches on the spiritual power and lasting positive effects of the mantra Om. ...this book is the perfect guide with theory and techniques to help you along the way.--Spirituality & Health Magazine

Fifty years ago few people in the west had even heard of meditation, while today the concept of meditation is well known, and meditation methods are to be found everywhere. With so much information about meditation, how is a sincere seeker to find a meditation method which is both proven and effective? By using a method which has been used successfully through the centuries: Om Yoga Meditation.

Om Yoga Meditation: Its Theory and Practice is a thorough guide providing all the information that might be desired for a successful meditation practice, illumining the art and science of effective inner life. Beginning with an in-depth explanation of what yoga is and what its goals are, and continuing with a background on the theory of mantra, Abbot George then shows the value of the unique mantra Om. He shows that Om Meditation is the original yoga, citing the classic scriptures of India and the testimony of the saints.



In Om Yoga Meditation you will discover the techniques for using Om in meditation, and how to make your meditation the most effective. You will also learn the foundations of the yogic life that will support and nourish your practice, and be given the keys to bless others as well as yourself using Om.

Cheryl Bruedigam, Author of What If We Are the Angels? says of this book: "Completely engrossing, if you allow it. I gobbled up every word once I gave it my all. Om Yoga Meditation is not a book to be read lightly but is most certainly a book to be read by anyone seeking the way to enlightenment. ...Allow yourself to immerse slowly into the flow of wordly waters as Burke leads you from the mysterious to the achievable: across 'the bridge to immortality.'"



"The Holy word, Om, bestows the highest state" (Yoga Vashishtha 5:54)



"This is the bridge to immortality. May you be successful in crossing over to the father shore beyond darkness" (Mundaka Upanishad 2.2.5,6).

About the Author

Abbot George Burke (Swami Nirmalananda Giri) is the founder and director of the Light of the Spirit Monastery (Atma Jyoti Ashram) in Cedar Crest, New Mexico, USA.

In his many pilgrimages to India, he had the opportunity of meeting some of India's greatest spiritual figures, including Swami Sivananda of Rishikesh and Anandamayi Ma. During his first trip to India he was made a member of the ancient Swami Order by Swami Vidyananda Giri, a direct disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda, who had himself been given sannyas by the Shankaracharya of Puri, Jagadguru Bharati Krishna Tirtha.

In the United States he also encountered various Christian saints, including Saint John Maximovich of San Francisco and Saint Philaret Voznesensky of New York. He was ordained in the Liberal Catholic Church (International) to the priesthood on January 25, 1974, and consecrated a bishop on August 23, 1975.

For many years Abbot George has researched the identity of Jesus Christ and his teachings with India and Sanatana Dharma, including Yoga. It is his conclusion that Jesus lived in India for most of his life, and was a yogi and Sanatana Dharma missionary to the West. After his resurrection he returned to India and lived the rest of his life in the Himalayas.

He is the author of a number of books on meditation and practical spiritual life, including Om Yoga Meditation: Its Theory and Practice, The Dhammapada for Awakening, The Gospel of Thomas for Awakening, May a Christian Believe in Reincarnation?, and The Christ of India: The Story of Saint Thomas Christianity.

He has written extensively on these and other topics at www.OCOY.org/
