* 

"This is a story for people who know that there is more to living than meets the eye.

 

You will be there with Ashram Tang, going right to the edge of his universe,…and yours… and then transcending them both. 

 

Ashram Tang was separated from the others at birth.  Ashram Tang was left for dead.  But Ashram Tang miraculously survived.  No one had ever survived such an ordeal.  No one. 

 

When Ashram Tang returned … some considered him special.  Some of the elders considered him a threat to their power and control within the hierarchy.  Most just considered him odd.

 

No one had ever come back from death before… until Ashram Tang.

 

At first nobody believed him.  But Ashram Tang saw something.  Ashram Tang KNEW something.

 

Ashram Tang made a discovery that changed his life... and the world around him... forever.  And Ashram Tang could not wait to see what would happen next."

This review is from: Ashram Tang: A Story... and a Discovery (Paperback)
I just finished reading a copy of Ashram Tang.

Very inspirational, thank you and well done.

It reminded me of "Jonathan Livingston Seagull" by Richard Bach.

That's all a book really needs to be short and simple with a profound message within that can change your perception on physical life.

There is a secret meaning intwined in the book that shows humanities belief of limitations. I really hope you get it.

Keep up the help and healing

This review is from: Ashram Tang: A Story... and a Discovery (Paperback)
The Brilliance of Ashram Tang! its going to be one of those I will want to read over and over again...... the "messages" within its sentences are just pure Joy to the Soul for me....... Ashram Tang is a Book that touches us all - and transcends age groups.... From the first page through to the very last I found it thought-provoking and enlightening, with its closing chapters one of superb empowerment for the Soul.... It is a Book that I will be encouraging all to read - because above all else .... Ashram Tang connects with each one of us individually..... a true Book of Enlightenment. Thank you for creating this superb book with its radiance of many colours resonating to bring to birth our own uniqueness within the Cosmic Whole....

5.0 out of 5 stars Multiple Spiritual Realities, Same Time and Space, July 27, 2010
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ashram Tang: A Story... and a Discovery (Paperback)
Helpful, very easy read, concerning every creature's place in the whole of creation, and the relationship of multiple spiritual realities in the same time and space. This book allows anyone to understand a common-sense approach to what we call 'spiritual' energy--not as a "supernatural" force, but as a different frame
of reference. Many such 'spiritual' ideas are explained simply through the analogue of many little critters in a normal fishtank that is cared-for by a curious child. One of the fish, Ashram Tang, has always felt 'different' and has always questioned the status quo. "The End of the Universe" is the wall of the tank.
The growing reality of communication between the child and the tang allow both to experience a completely different reality than their own "normal" one. The communication is felt as something awesome and affirms the possibility of realities beyond that which we humans consider "normal" daily life. Ignorance is shown to lead to unkind behavior. "Dogma" is shown to be the result of the willful choice of ignorance over understanding. The author does not draw out this analogue all the way to war or violence, but the root causes of both are shown simply. There is an ineffable sweetness, or lightness of being, to this book--which I loved.

I really enjoyed the simple, yet very profound story. A person's (or water creature's) perspective is their reality. I found myself thinking of people I knew who had characteristics similar to the book's characters. Very entertaining with a valuable lesson.

The essence of this book just sneaks up on you!!!! I love that you see everything from each entity's point of view. It really puts a perspective on things. Each entity has their own opinion and fears. And they bring that with them in interacting with Ashram.

It's easy to see that is what we do in our linear life. I could reread and reread and reread this. I'm going to read it to my husband who is totally blind in one eye and almost in the other. And I'll try to read it to the grandkids. They could learn a lot from this as well.

Very Kewl!!!!!

After reading this book, I am inspired to recommend this read to anyone looking to expand their awareness of opening their minds to endless possibilities.

The message I got is there is more to the mind if we are willing to expand our horizons.

Thank you April

This book makes you go in yourself and also makes you become more aware of the impact of the surrounding. When reading the book, I shared the story to my 11 & 13 yrs-old girls about this beautiful fish and the others. They knew what it is when challenging the statue quo. Thank you so much for sharing and make us wonder!

5.0 out of 5 stars Layered Wonders, July 7, 2010
This review is from: Ashram Tang: A Story... and a Discovery (Paperback)
This is a great little book with very big themes. A world within a world within a world, and the infinite wonders within all of them. The book really mirrors in its various and subtle themes, what we as a culture experience daily, showing the levels of awareness among all of us. Ashram Tang shows that not all of us on the planet are meant to expand in the same ways or experience the same types of enlightment. It reminded me that for those of us who chose to open up to these wonders, all kinds of joys and expansion are waiting, even if it just an inner peace and quite knowing.

This review is from: Ashram Tang: A Story... and a Discovery (Paperback)
A short thought provoking book that stimulates you to review your
perspective of our little corner of the universe and how we relate to and perceive "our God". Or, for those not so inclined, it's a simple little story about the life of a fish that meets his God up close and personal and his resulting change of perception which opens up a world of possibilities for his universe.

A wonderful simple tale about awareness and personal truth. It is written in a way that can be enjoyed by both a young audience as well as an enlightened mature reader. As in life where we are all unique and on our own journey, so it is with the characters in Ashram Tang. It is about finding your own truth and living by it. Read and read again...Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars From the spaces beyond, July 7, 2010
This review is from: Ashram Tang: A Story... and a Discovery (Paperback)
Thank you first of all,

Reading this book at first one might think as we have for a long time now. One dimensionally! When reading any literature that descends our boundaries and ask for our true nature to settle in. One should read from the heart and let the mind be free from interpertation. "Ashram Tang" is written especially for those who seek their higher purpose in there own lives. By pushing past there own insecurities, one's self will open to the reality of there own creation. This story purposely opens that door to every possibility within our own true self, our soul. It is not just a story about a fish or a community, but a story that has been written by us all. That we all have our set of beliefs, yet we all know deep in our selfs that we all connect to eachother...from the atoms and particles, to the water, land, trees, to each animal, to the weather, to each individual. It is a story that tells us a message, much larger than one self, that if we chose to listen, the truth and answers are within us all.

Peace, Love, Happiness

This review is from: Ashram Tang: A Story... and a Discovery (Paperback)
A delightful story that pulled me in and kept me hanging right to the end. Nudges doors in your mind which those "Reflections" in the end will open all the wider. No fair peeking, do the right thing and begin at the beginning.

And as any fisherman with heart knows, when you pull them from the water they DO speak, some species a lot clearer than others. If you are even a little curious about "unseen realities," this enjoyable story will point the way.

April, we want more.

This book cheerfully guides you into looking deep within yourself. It asks you to not only look deep within yourself but to expand yourself to the possibility of other realms of existence. It truly is a book written by evolved entities to help us on our journey toward enlightenment. I suggest everybody read it if they can. It is worth your time.
