#1987 - Friday, November 26, 2004 - Editor: Jerry    

Selection from a new book: Himalayan Mysticism, by Ralph Nataraj.

This book is a work in the yogic tradition, a tool on the path of courage, the path of wisdom and
the path of love and an introduction into the mystery school of the Goddess. Ralph embraces fully
the dazzling paradox and leads us to the full experience of divine madness. After the initiations
in Tantra and Sri Vidya that he received, Ralph 'channeled' several outstanding revelations in
tantric theology and mysticism.

The receptivity and awareness, with which you go through this text, is the key to make you
recognise and celebrate your inherent greatness.

In this book many topics that carry a certain load for people are addressed. Ralph is trying to
shake us up and get us to look from every perceivable angle to these issues; to increase the
flexibility, not only of our mind, but also of our perceptions and will.

to understand: Your mind is linked or plugged into the matrix. The matrix is all the mind-stuff and

I hope that I am not writing all this for nothing.


So many people are still so much in the matrix ... It is really not necessary.
