Traveling the road on pilgrimage, and following American Baul Master, Khepa Lee Lozowick (1943–2010), author Mary Angelon Young crafted a collection of essays that explores the many moods of “Enlightened Duality,” one of Lozowick’s core teachings in the path of Western Bauls.

This dynamic spiritual principle suggests that one can combine an integrated awareness of the nondual (“all is One”) with a lively, conscious relationship to the duality or play of opposites, the constant fare of everyday life. Unlike those strictly nondual perspectives that relegate the human experience to an illusion of the mind, Lozowick asserted that, while nondual unity is the foundation of what is, simultaneously, life is real.

These original essays cover such universal themes as impermanence, beauty and the path of transformation, and comprise one wayfarer’s reflections and research. Each essay has its own integrity and stands on its own authority. Yet, taken as a whole, they form a useful map of the tantric path, charting its depths through daily events, travel, relationships, creativity and work—all continuous, integrated aspects of the transformational path. This book provides a genuine feast of practical wisdom for the hungry seeker who yearns for a path through life that is both transformational and yet honoring of the innate dignity and potential of the human incarnation.

The author has travelled extensively in India and Europe; has studied the Sanskrit, Hindu and Buddhist traditions; and has written numerous books, including an extensive treatise on the Baul Path, The Baul Tradition. (Hohm Press, 2014)
