"Bliss it is in THIS dawn to be alive!"

Message written in red chalk on Andrew Harvey's hotel room door by a friend in Stockholm, December 1989, during the week in which His Holiness, the Dalai Lama was presented with the Nobel Peace Prize. From Mr. Harvey's Introduction to "Essential Teachings", by H.H., the Dalai Lama (North Atlantic Books, Berkely, CA: 1995, p. xiii). Andrew Harvey is the author/editor of a number of excellent books on comparative religions, spirituality, metaphysics, mysticism etc., including "The Essential Mystics: The Soul's Journey Into Truth" (Castle Books, Edison, NJ: 1996).
