Perfect for meditation

The poster came in perfect condition and is wonderful to meditate upon. A great reminder on the stages and eliminating the ego judging progress. Thank you!

Every little bit

I enjoy this poster because every little bit of it has a depth of value to contemplate and meditate upon. So many aspects and details and yet a singular focused process. An expression of the fabulous relationship of order and chaos. Thank you much.

I love the posters

These posters are great refrences. The only problem was the post office crushed them, but the image itself and the lessons they convey is what counts to me wrinkled or not.

Gnostic surprise

Just a note
I do most shopping online
In the last mailer Glorian sent out they were advertising stages of meditation
A man in various scenes with an elephant
I wanted to order it
But after trying a couple of times
I kept getting a note that shipping was unavailable to California
I emailed them…a back and forth ensued that made me question the irony of a man and his elephant…the story of the blind dudes who are each grasping a piece of an elephant mistaking it for other objects…but finally they took me seriously as it turns out there was a glitch…to make a short story long…they sent me some extra stuff unsolicited…solid…in an age of cash grabs in a over commercialized spiritual marketplace it turns out these dudes are not just grasping an elephant phallus…not that elephant phalluses are bad…but hopefully the blind have their vision restored…meditation Ganesh style
