Banyen's Description: 

Meister Eckhart (1260-1327) was a German Dominican theologian whose preaching was immensely popular in his own time and whose writings—of surprising clarity and depth—form a huge part of the foundation of the Western mystical tradition. Though condemned by the Church and excommunicated at the end of his life—a “seal” of the livingness of his vision, you might say—his influence on people from a range of spiritual traditions has remained strong—from the Rhineland mystics who were his immediate heirs to present-day Buddhists who find in Eckhart the “missing link” between Buddhism and theistic systems. His works have rung true with seekers for more than eight hundred years.

This introduction to the writing and preaching of the greatest medieval European mystic contains selections from his sermons, treatises, and sayings, as well as Table Talk, the records of his informal advice to his spiritual children. It draws the best texts from the most successful translations, thus making Eckhart more accessible.

People often say to me: “Pray for me!” At that I have to wonder: Why did you ever leave him? And why not be your true self and reach into your own treasure? For the whole truth is just as much in you as in me!

The most powerful prayer, one well nigh omnipotent, and the worthiest work of all is the outcome of a quiet mind. The quieter the mind, the more powerful, the worthier, the deeper, the more telling and more perfect the prayer is. To the quiet mind all things are possible.
