Edward Salim Michael

Edward Salim michaelEdward Salim Michael was imbued with what is sometimes called “eternal philosophy,” “philosophia perennis,” or the transcendent unity of religions.

Evidently, he had arrived at that central point from which the great religions can be viewed as converging roads all which permit to reach beyond relative forms.

I am aware of the universal spirit which enabled Edward Salim Michael to unite humanity’s great traditions into the same discourse and the same practice. Today, in our state of antagonistic separation, is there any more urgent task than to bring together in harmony what has been riven asunder?

Jean Pierre Schnetzler Autor of «La méditation bouddhique» (Buddhist Meditation)

Sayings of the Buddha to his disciples :

There is, monks, an unborn, unbecome, unmade, unconditioned. If, monks, there were no unborn, unbecome, unmade, unconditioned, no escape would be discerned from what is born, become, made, conditioned.

But because there is an unborn, unbecome, unmade, unconditioned, therefore an escape is discerned from what is born, become, made, conditioned.
(Udhâna, VIII).

Ramana Maharshi :

"The Consciousness within purged of the mind is felt as God."

Ayya Khema :

In reality, there is only one truth and mystics of all ages have always found the same truth. There is universal Consciousness and that can be experienced in meditation.
Universal Consciousness is not Buddhist, but infinite. The infinity of space is not Buddhist but just infinity. " 
(Theravada meditation teacher - author of "Being nobody, going nowhere")
