Mystics, Masters, Saints, Sages - Book Review

Do you love to read inspiring stories of people dedicated to the higher good who have followed their dream? Well, I do, and this book more than fits the bill!

33 Brief bio sketches of saintly people along with several pages excerpted from the work of each, provide the reader with just enough for upliftment. The chapters portraying each "mystic, master, saint and sage" are arranged chronologically, dating from more than 600B.C. to include some still living.

I feel like this book presents a real life glimpse into what spurs one on, in the quest for both personal fulfillment, and serving the good of all.

I salute the authors, Robert Ullman and Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman, for having the foresight and inspiration to bring these 33 holy people to our attention. Each life carries a unique message that deserves our time for reflection and meditation!

Those included: Gautama, the Buddha; Hui-Neng; Yeshe Tsogyal; Jalaluddin Rumi; A Disciple of the Kabbalistic School of Abraham Abulafia; St. Catherine of Siena; Kabir; Gendun Gyatso Palzangpo; St. John of the Cross; Hakuin; The Baal Shem Tov; Bahá'u'lláh; Ramakrishna Paramahamsa; Ramana Maharshi; Swami (Papa) Ramdas and Mother Krishnabai.
