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.

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
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.
