In this work Mr Walker draws some convincing comparisons between Gurdjieff’s teaching and that of Vedanta and of the Buddha and also with such western mystics as Hoehme and such men of science as William James... Mr Walker, with the help of diagrams, elucidates these mysteries as best he can, while admitting that they can only be known by a consciousness capable of living them. He has certainly succeeded in making them more humanly intelligible and acceptable. He expounds in outline the ideas themselves. He does it very well, quietly and unassumingly, not setting out the “system" in abstract terms but realising how he gradually came to know it and how it influenced him. 3-page list of Cape paperbacks to rear.
