Shunyamurti is a modern Dante, guiding us poetically on a thrilling journey through the inferno of our unconscious mind, into the purgatory of psycho-spiritual purification and transformation, and finally to the ultimate ascent of the Mountain of God to Supreme Liberation. The Transformational Imperative represents the culmination of the “perennial philosophy.” It succeeds in uniting all spiritual traditions with the insights of contemporary science and the many varieties of transpersonal and psychoanalytic theory. The penetrating logic of the profound ideas brilliantly stated in this book will bring readers through their own awakening and illumination to final transcendence of the limits of ego-consciousness. In one breathtaking essay after another, Shunyamurti rips away the veils of illusion and reveals the underlying meaning of our lives. This masterful work re-founds human culture on the true Ground of our Being, preparing the way for a planetary renaissance of consciousness.
