Watch out. This is not another of those feel-good ‘oneness’ Advaita books. This one is a double-barrelled shotgun taking pot shots at the conceptualising mind -one barrel being fired by the great Indian mystic-sage Dattatreya (Avadhut) and the other by Karl Renz, the contemporary ‘Avadhut’. There is no escape here not just for the ‘fragmented-mind’ but also for the enlightened ‘whole-mind’!
Though Echoes of Silence may come across as the quintessential playground for a relentless game of deconstructing the ‘mind’, you cannot however miss its omnipresent soothing core of Silence! Paradoxically, only Timeless, Motionless Silence echoes and pervades here despite the volley of ‘living’ words being fired by these two maverick ‘entities’ separated by centuries and geographies, who apparently have not much in common - except, perhaps, their ‘own’ non-existerice!
So, what comes out of all this? Non-existing masters prattling empty words to non-existing seekers seeking non-existing liberation? Can you, as the-one-existing-now, take it?! Find out for yourself... as you set forth on this turbulent voyage, with these two bafflingly wise masters at the helm, through the treacherous seas of the mind. Survival is not guaranteed - for any ‘one’!
And the good part? You survive, no complaints. You perish, no complaints again. You simply cannot find ‘the complainer’ here complaining to anyone about anything at all. All that remains is the carefree bliss of the eternal song of the duet of one... or none.
