Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 162203094X, Hardcover)The story of Jesus has not waned in its power to change lives. Yet today, even though the majority of us grew up in a culture suffused by the mythos of Jesus, many of us feel disconnected from the essence and vitality of his teachings. With Resurrecting Jesus, Adyashanti presents a bold new book inviting us to rediscover the life and teachings of Jesus as a direct path to what may be the most radical of transformations: spiritual awakening. Jesus crossed all of the boundary lines that separated the people of his time because he viewed the world from the perspective of what unites us, not what divides us. In this provocative and stirring inquiry, Adyashanti reveals the man known as Jesus as an exemplar of the realized state and a model of enlightened engagement with the world. Tracing the story of Jesus from his birth to the Resurrection, he shows how the key events in Jesus' life parallel the stages of spiritual awakening and shares the profound implications this represents for modern seekers. "Jesus symbolizes the spiritual mystery of each one of us," explains Adya, "and points us toward the radiance within that is available right now-the eternal saving grace through which we realize that we are each sons and daughters of a living God." With Resurrecting Jesus, readers from all walks of life will explore "the transmission of infinite love" that his story represents-and how that love revolutionizes our lives and our world.
