You cannot drink a cup of tea with your ear; neither can you find God using your mind or heart. Only your soul knows the right path.
In Latihan—A Path to the Great Life and a New Way to Purify the Soul, author Rozak Tatebe provides a sweeping view of the spiritual movement Subud and the practice at its core—the latihan. Once the soul is awakened through contact with the Great Life, it can start to find its rightful place as the channel between the creator of the universe and our physical bodies and minds.
In traditional religion, we have to rely on faith to understand spiritual content. The latihan gives us the means to verify our beliefs through direct experience without the interference of thoughts or emotions. This direct contact can transform our lives.
