This magnificent Sonnet Sequence for Awakening and Selected Poems by the mind body and spirit author Alan Jacobs, celebrates the joys and trials of attaining God or Self Realisation. An essential and rewarding book for enjoyment, meditation and education certain to inspire all spiritual aspirants. Alan Jacobs' new poetry collection, entitled '108 Sonnets for Awakening and Selected Poems', is without doubt essential devotional reading for all those interested in non-dual teachings and especially those of Sri Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi, to whom this fine sonnet sequence (the longest to appear since Gabriel Dante Rossetti's 'House of Life'), is dedicated. I strongly recommend this wonderful book as an ever-flowing source to inspire all those striving to wake up from the suffering dream of samsara. The book also contains some of Jacobs best poems and a useful glossary of Sanskrit and Tamil words, as well as an index of first lines and a biography of the author. I happily give this book a five-star rating. ~ Paula Marvelly, author of the Book of One, Wisdom of Women Mystics and Living Advaita.
