Online Book

An Overview: Four Asian Traditions (Impacting Western Cultures Since the 19th Century)
Welcome to this site.

This site contains an online book, presented by an “anonymous retiree”, that is a very beginning introduction to the basic history, teachings, and practices to the main Asian-born non-dualistic wisdom traditions that began seriously impacting western cultures in the 19th Century.

At the base of the header photo for this site are the links to the contents of that book, which surveys Advaita Vedanta, Vipassana, Kashmir Shaivism, and Dzogchen. And, also here:
