Aum Shanti Bookshop invites you to a free talk and book signing with author and lecturer Andrew Vidich, Ph.D. in celebration of his latest book, Let There Be Light: Experiencing Inner Light Across the World’s Sacred Traditions. Dr. Vidich is a frequent and popular lecturer at CRS.
Let There Be Light celebrates the splendor of radiant Light that has been known, embodied and taught by mystics, saints and sages over the millennia. Readers at every level will enjoy this book for its insights and message of hope: Light is available to all who seek it with humility and grace.
In this book author Andrew Vidich and artist Arthur Stein celebrate individuals who have experienced this divine light. Numerous esoteric references to Inner Light appear not only in the scriptures of the distant past, but also within the personal experiential accounts by Masters, sages, and seers across the centuries. The book also draws upon wisdom stories and tales from many cultural and ethnic traditions.
