Reviews - What do customers think about The missing link. The Ishayas Techniques?
What a dissapointment! Jan 1, 2008
I bought the book because I had been interested in learning the Ishaya meditation techniques, but was unable to travel abroad and pay lots of money for the courses, trip, etc. The misleading title of the book led me to believe that the actual TECHNIQUES of the Ishayas are here (the title even says that the book shows you the 'missing link', which obviously alludes to the techniques.) So I eagerly awaited the book.
However, it seems that the authors gave the book such a misleading title on purpose, in order to make people who wanted to learn the techniques buy the book. In reality, the book isn't much more than an overview of the Ishaya's principles and the life stories of the two authors. If I had known this, I would never have bought the book, since I am not interested in the authors' lives in the slightest. This will probably be the first book I'll send back to this site, out of tons of books I have bought. The title is pure trickery (intentionally or not).
(The actual meditation techniques, I learned later on, are nothing more than a variation of the TM method, which is very easy to learn without a teacher or expensive training. They supposedly come from the Himalayas, although the originator of the method, MSI, reportedly never left the US during the time he supposedly went to the Himalayas to learn them. Oh well. Next time I'll save my money for the movies.)
