Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beware I agree with the other reviewer's comments about the New Age twist in this collection of Saints. Beware anything that is in the realm of pagans in the pews. Whether one agrees with the Catholic practice of canonization ... upono independant investigation ... most saints lived lives that reflected the Judeo-Christian theme of purification. Their lives were NOT easy ... no mantra .. no crystals ... no horoscopes ... none of these woo-woo practices ... yet they became a saint. My point is ... this is good for reference on basics about a particular saint's life ... but the blood, sweat, and tears of a sacrificial life is the truth of why these people reached the station they did. An from a Hindi-Buddhist perspective (Prince Siddartha was a Hindu before founding Buddhism) both Krishna and Buddha lived lives that also were a testament to the shedding of ego through sacrifice and going through certain spiritual tests. Moses was exiled. Jesus was crucified. The Dali Lama is unable to return to Tibet homeland. Who said it was easy? Not the true religions but the woo-woo wacko New Agers who want the result of soul growth but won't do the work to achieve it.
