Get a Copy of One of the Best Most Inspiring Books Out There: The Paradise Man

This great book of spiritual journey is inspired by Thomas Merton, an eminent twentieth-century Trappist monk who is known for his insightful scholarly work in Christian mysticism. Merton was praised by Tenzin Gyatso, the current Dalai Lama, as having the most profound understanding of Buddhism than any Christian he had ever known.


The author Fr. Peter Dat Tien Vu patiently and methodically explains in just three chapters Merton’s philosophy of attaining the consciousness of paradise by setting ego and earthly desires aside to exist in the present moment, an act of gratitude and prayerful union with God. The author sees this union as simultaneously an act of contemplation and an act of transformation. By his account, the state of self-identity — the “I” consciousness — vanishes, and what remains is unparalleled “being,” a state of limitless peace and joy. In this state of mind, God is everywhere, in everything, and, therefore, to exist in this state is true paradise. Spiritual seekers will appreciate the concrete and accessible guidance in this book, and it certainly can be read and re-read as needed to rekindle the wonder of life’s sacred aspects. The beauty of this philosophical journey is that the journey and the destination are available to all.

This book titled: The Paradise Man, highly addresses the state of returning to paradise as a state of consciousness in Christian terminology, using many well-known biblical metaphors familiar to Christians and non-Christians alike. Many of the precepts discussed have strong relevance in Buddhist theology and in mystic Islam, both of which share the idea that higher states of consciousness are available to both laypeople and monastic as well as to both non-religious and religious spiritual seekers.

If you open your heart to this book you will find out it is like nothing you have ever read or come across. Your heart will never lose this hope that Paradise is the inheritance of everyone; a source of infinite peace, joy and sanctity. If you want to take your spiritual formation to the next level this is a must read book. The author simplifies advanced spiritual concepts advanced by Thomas Merton and reveals the hidden treasure of Paradise that can occur only through a change of heart. Paradise Man inspires and offers a path for those who are ready to empty their ego and watch paradise appear in all its beauty while experiencing an intimate relationship with the true God.
