Quest, 2010. First edition. If you want to pursue in a western way the path that we follow here at Mirtola, you need to study with the Gurdjieffian teaching. Thus did the guru Madhava Ashish, at their first meeting, invite American businessman Sy Ginsburg on a spiritual journey that would last 19 years (until the guru's death) and include a lengthy correspondence and annual visits to Sri Madhava Ashish's Mirtola ashram, near Almora, in India's Himalayan foothills. Along the way, the entrepreneur would not only be caught up in the teaching of G.I. Gurdjieff, but also in the search for the elusive unitive vision--the world viewed from the perspective of the greater Self and not the personality. In this remarkable spiritual document, the reader shares the search, increasingly catching glimpses of the unitive vision as the book draws toward a close that is also an opening out, into the vaster dimensions of the human mind.
