If the Holy Grail were actually discovered today, it would create a huge world wide sensation. This book, "The Authorized Dark Zen Meditation Manual of Buddhism" should be heralded as the just found Holy Grail of Buddhism. The author claims, and rightly so, that this book explains the missing meditational practice that the Buddha gave to the world some 2500 years ago. No one reading it can dispute its claim when they actually sense the "Buddhic light" after practicing the meditation. This book seems to be touched by an uncanny power I have not witnessed in any Buddhist work. This book is truly awesome. Don't buy it if you fear illumination. -- The Zennist

For a long time, something has been missing in Buddhist meditation. What has been missing, it seems clear, is the Buddha's original idea of meditation whereby the adept accesses the immortal spirit which the Buddha discovered long ago. Dark Zen claims to have found this missing meditation practice of the Buddha which accesses the immortal spirit. We think not only that Dark Zen meditation is the authentic meditation of the Buddha, but we have now verified it with a new, exciting translation of a key Buddhist scripture. This scripture outlines the Buddha's original meditation which the author presents for the first time.From the Inside Flap:
It will be the intent of DZM, as a result of this inversion, to restore our true position. Practice will, therefore, consist in learning to turn away from the phenomenal world brought through the senses by, instead, repeatedly turning to the true world of Buddhic light so as to follow it upwards, enlarging our contact with it.
It has never occurred to us that by turning around, in a manner of speaking, we can engage with the light of the Buddha which animates our body so that we can partake in his awakening and see the immortal. Instead, we choose to follow the ways of the world becoming more entangled in it. It is like a thirsty person chasing after mirages hoping to quench their thirst. Incidentally, this is the meaning behind the idea of samsara in which we repeatedly become conscious of new bodily births and their subsequent deaths.
