Leary's only book of meditative poetry. Manual to higher consciousness inspired by Lao Tse's Tao Te Ching (Way of Life) Includes six rediscovered poems, photos, and drawings from the cover of the German edition by H. R. Giger and photos of Leary in India, along with essays by Michael Horowitz, Rosemary Woodruff Leary, and Ralph Metzner, who was with Leary in India when he wrote the book.

A companion volume to High Priest. "My objective," Leary wrote,"was to find the seed idea in each Sutra and rewrite it in the lingua franca of psychedelia." The result was this handy take-along prayer book. It is intended to be read slowly during a session as a guide to transcendental experiences.
