Jesus in the Lotus: The Mystical Doorway Between Christianity and Yogic Spirituality
Drawing on a deep knowledge of Christian scripture as well as Hindu philosophy, musician and teacher Russill Paul reveals that the mystical core of religion offers us much more than the simple solace of unthinking dogma. By demonstrating that these two seemingly separate and irreconcilable religions can actually unite in one person’s spiritual practice at the center of his life — as they did in his — he offers an alternative to religious intolerance and strife, as well as hope for personal liberation.

The book talks more about the authors experiences. Not really a good read. I couldn't make it through the first chapter. Too much ego present and not enough spiritual authenticity.
