This is a great read for people interested in eastern wisdom, Buddhism, meditation and nonviolence. It draws from the most ancient sources of knowledge, before organized religions, when the cultures that practiced meditation and non-harming (ahimsa) flourished. 

A very concentrated collection of knowledge in a very poetic presentation: it also features a poetic series on oneness, based on the ancient wisdom, and meditative experience of collective consciousness. The work is heavy on art and illustrated in an original style.
