n 1991, Berthold Madhukar Thompson was declared enlightened by a renowned Indian teacher. Yet Madhukar's search for truth was not over; he himself was not convinced that he had achieved the summit of enlightenment. The Odyssey of Enlightenment chronicles the burning quest of a man already acknowledged to be enlightened, as he searches for--and ruthlessly questions--a total of 12 other teachers others who are widely recognized as enlightened. Spurred on by an unquenchable yearning for truth, Thompson's odyssey takes him to remote parts of India where he engages in dialogues of a quality and depth rarely found in the annals of religion.
A chronicle of the author?s burning quest for truth, as he tirelessly questions a total of 12 spiritual teachers, including Osho, U.G. Krishnamurthi, Ramesh S. Balsekar, Papaji, Gangolli, Kiran and Andrew Cohen, amongst others. Contemplative dialogue of an unparalleled quality and depth.
