Massimo Scaligero (1906–80) was a student of Zen, of Yoga, and of his spiritual science of Rudolf Steiner, but he came to independent conclusions based on his direct spiritual experience. The Light (La Luce) is his masterpiece.

Written as an unfolding meditation, it is the expression of Scaligero’s travels in higher realms. It shows how the primal principle, the source of all being, knowing and love, descends instant by instant into the known world of things.
Scaligero challenges us to learn to experience the very process of consciousness, rather than be content with the knowledge of its products. His body of work will continue to influence spiritual seekers into the next century and beyond.


'Another undiscovered classic from Lindisfarne. Scaligero writes very clearly out of his own experience in a lapidary style of unusual penetration. It is a book for contemplative reading a few pages at a time.'
-- Scientific and Medical Network Review
