Lost Masters Rediscovering the Mysticism of the Ancient Greek Philosophers An Eckhart Tolle Edition By : linda johnsen
Ashrams in Europe twenty-five hundred years ago? Greek philosophers
studying in India? Meditation classes in ancient Rome? It sounds
unbelievable, but it’s historically true. Alexander the Great had an
Indian guru. Pythagoras, Empedocles, and Plotinus all encouraged their
students to meditate. Apollonius, the most famous Western sage of the
first century c.e., visited both India and Egypt—and claimed that
Egyptian wisdom was rooted in India.
In Lost Masters, award-winning author Linda Johnsen, digging deep into classical sources, uncovers evidence of astonishing similarities between some of the ancient Western world’s greatest thinkers and India’s yogis, including a belief in karma and reincarnation. Today ancient Greek philosophers are remembered as the founders of Western science and civilization. We’ve forgotten that for over a thousand years they were revered as sages, masters of spiritual wisdom. Lost Masters is an exploration of our long-lost Western spiritual heritage and the surprising insights it can offer us today.
