Banyen's Description: 

The Most Dangerous man since Jesus Christ, the Sex Guru, the Ambassador from Hell, the Black Devil of Ashkhabad, The King of Depravity, and the Wickedest Man in the World. These were some of the labels given to three of the most notorious figures of 20th century spirituality: Osho (formerly known as Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh), G.I. Gurdjieff, and Aleister Crowley. Beneath the controversies and scandals that swirled around all three the author argues that these men, egocentric tendencies notwithstanding, were brilliant thinkers and extraordinary masters of their craft, that of the science of inner transformation, and in particular the art of balancing the so called Left and Right Hand spiritual paths.

These men were not humble sages. They were bona fide crazy wisdom masters and consistently went where angels fear to tread. They did not teach with the faint praise of new age fluff or the stuffy platitudes of religious sermons, but rather with a flaming sword, and were a genuine menace to all seekers who fear to face the abyss of their own egos.

Osho, G.I. Gurdjieff and Aleister Crowley are ‘dangerous Magi’ because their teachings were provocative and confrontational and require discerning interpretation. As metaphysical guru-figures, all three were capable of damaging their followers as well as providing them with profound spiritual insights. P.T. Mistlberger has personal experiential knowledge of the three esoteric paths pioneered by these Magi. In this excellent book he explains why all three have contributed to the perennial wisdom tradition despite the controversy associated with their teachings. The Three Dangerous Magi is thoroughly researched and accessibly written and I recommend it unreservedly.” ---Nevill Drury, author of The New Age: the History of a Movement

The Three Dangerous Magi is a must read/devour for those who have a penchant for Crazy Wisdom’s top unframers! Mistlberger unravels and makes the three rascal awakeners come alive in all of their unconventional glory… Be ready to be stirred to the core, turned upside down and fit together again in new ways.” ---Satyen Raja, author of Living Ecstasy

P.T. Mistlberger is a transpersonal therapist and meditation teacher. From monasteries in the Tibetan highlands to Tantric ashrams in India, from the monuments of Egypt and stone circles of Britain to high deserts in Arizona and Native sweat lodges in British Columbia, he has scoured the globe seeking the best of the world’s wisdom traditions. He lives in Vancouver.
