What is Transcendental Journeys?
Transcendental Journeys – A Visionary Quest for Freedom, a book by Omananda, is a three-decades-long non-fictional story, which takes readers on a visionary quest for freedom that began with the author’s dangerous escape from East Germany before the Berlin Wall fell.
Physical freedom was not enough to liberate Omananda from the paralyzing conditionings of his mind. Intuitively he knew that there is more to life than we perceive or what we have been told. The author started traveling and was initiated in Asia into an ancient mysticism. This mystical encounter irreversibly changed the course of his life and set the tone for gaining deeper knowledge in non-ordinary states.
Omananda shares unconventional information in an artistic, entertaining, and educational manner.

All media herein serves as supportive evidence to defend Mother Earth from a contemporary global meme in which we, as a species, seem to have lost contact with reality.
The human heart and our beautiful host planet suffer a great deal! Endless profit, insatiable greed, temporary gain, and senseless exploitation seem to justify all means. This places us, as a species, in a position that looks as if we have lost the sacred knowledge of our cosmic heritage and divine destiny. The author provides solutions how we can change collectively and not be trapped as a result of our prioritized, although commonly agreed-upon, monetary values that likely result from erroneous materialistic world-views.
Surely, most of us have the innate ability to fully bloom into the brilliance of our radiant, true nature. But we don’t mature well when we are purposefully misguided and get increasingly addicted to toxic stuff that bombards us from multiple angles, on mental and physical levels. Many of us scream for change, but most of us look for it on the outside, where we can get overwhelmed with so many possibilities and too much information. Overload! Life in the technological age is becoming increasingly complex. It’s not so easy to know why, what, or how to transform into a more happier and joyful, cosmic being. Confusion, lack of time, misdirected focus and scrambled attention often lead us to give up before thoroughly investigating who we are, or what our actual life goals and deeper purposes might be. Even though we are all born wondering about that! Perhaps it is not too late to change, one person at a time. But are you ready? If not yet, reading this book will nonetheless inspire and entertain you. But if you are ready to dive deeper into the nature of reality and explore your authentic self, this book offers much useful material to work with.
A deeper understanding builds throughout this story. In the final chapter, the author elucidates easy-to-practice, non-religious, yet powerful, spiritual methods and exercises for personal transformation, with helpful hints and suggestions. Omananda also shares his knowledge on the subject of drugs and their abuse. As a medical professional, he clarifies in simple terms for anyone, but especially those who should be all ears, even if they only drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes, why what is considered normal or legal is not necessarily safe. For people with addiction issues and anyone interested in freeing themselves from internal and external struggles this book holds great value!
