The Elixir of Enlightenment:

"An excellent introduction to the process of true Spiritual training."

A.H. Almaas answers the question, "Why do most people on spiritual paths fail to attain what they seek?" by exploring the active relationship between personality and Essence as it inspires and impedes the search. In the light of his own contemporary Diamond Approach, he examines the teachings of Krishnamurti, Rajneesh, and Buddhism, providing invaluable insight for students and teachers on any path.
