We are happy to announce that Wandering With The Cherubim: A Commentary on the Mystical Verse of Angelus Silesius–The Cherubinic Wanderer by Swami Nirmalananda Giri (Abbot George Burke) has been published and is now available at Amazon here, and the ebook is available for only 99¢ for a limited time.
Johannes Scheffler, who wrote under the name Angelus Silesius, was a mystic and a poet. In his most famous book, “The Cherubinic Wanderer,” he expressed his mystical vision. Swami Nirmalananda reveals the timelessness of his mystical teachings and The Cherubinic Wanderer’s practical value for spiritual seekers. He does this in an easily intelligible fashion for those wishing to put those priceless teachings into practice.
Here is what readers say:
“What a joy to read! I found myself at times awe-struck, other times cheering, and often challenged.”
“Set yourself on the journey of this mystical poetry made accessible through this very beautifully commentated text. It is text that submerges one in the philosophical context of the Advaita notion of Non Duality. Swami Nirmalananda’s commentary is indispensable in understanding higher philosophical ideas, for Swami’s language, while readily approachable, is rich in deep essence of the teachings.”
“Silesius talks about how a child weeping for his toy makes a person smile and asks if what we weep for are more than his toy. Swamiji comments on the verse expressing how Yogananda said that all those possessions we are attached to and call our own are really nothing more than puppets, showing their transitoriness.”
