Summary: Makes Ramprasad come alive
Comment: I was fortunate enough to attend readings from this book with Lex Hixon present. I was repeatedly struck by the way in which Ramprasad's poetry came alive through Lex's interpretations regardless of whose voice intoned the words. Lex avoided the trap of adhering to literal accuracy in translating poetry by emphasizing the accurate translation of meaning and meter. In hearing and reading this poetry it was easy to imagine myself sharing Ramprasad's ecstatic vision.

Summary: Inspirational, Ecstatic, Devotional Poetry
Comment: This is one of the most inspirational collections of devotional poetry I have ever read. Lex Hixon does an excellent job of expressing the essence of Yoga philosophy and Tantra in poetic English. The combination of the ecstatic musings of the 19th century Bengali poet, Ramprasad and the modern lively English of Lex Hixon has created a masterpiece. I would recommend this book to all interested in the devotional experience of Tantra as well as the Vedanta philosophy. The beauty of the book is that you need not be a scholar to experience the mystical vision of Tantra Yoga.
