"This book is a goldmine of liberating hints and is a must read for anyone who is searching for guidance in this jungle of misleading information. I am simply delighted, I find the expressions and metaphors beautifully enlightening and simply helpful to anyone who wishes to escape from the slavery that we have been conditioned to believe to be freedom. I am overwhelmed by the beauty, clarity and thoroughness of this work. In short, I have not read anything in this book thot I could not sign. In love, Samarpan"

"Stunningly effective! This is a 'God-Book' that should be read several times.”

"I have just finished reading the book 'Functional SIience: De-Mystifying Awakening for the Spiritually Exhausted' and I loved it for its simplicity, wisdom of direction and very sound pointers. I have known Gabor Harsanyi for many years and when I left Toronto in 1984 he was still a seeker. When I watched him years later on U.K. Conscious TV I saw a man who had found himself. Gabor wrote in this book 'As the creator, would you make the road difficult for your children to return Home?' In like manner, Gabor's book is designed to open the eyes to the possibility of a new way of seeing the simplicity and obviousness of the reality of life. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is serious about waking up to the truth of Being. Thank you Nurit and Gabor for this privilege. love, Burt"

“BEST BOOK EVER! How much money and YEARS I have spent on books, satsangs, travels to India and other countries is considerable. However, dear Master Gabor, I have to say, “better later than never” to have found you. I suppose, all these years, time was “still pleasantly wasted”, at least now you were at the end of the rainbow!”
“Excellent, full of insight and witty. Expressed with a touch of genius, playfulness and a depth of compassionate simplicity, this book pioneers the field of evolution of the human psyche out of conditioning and into a deeper direct experience of consciousness and life. It's humble, clear and witty, all of service to the message of spiritual awakening.”

“A refreshing and original perspective! I was first introduced to Gabor Harsanyi through his interviews on Buddha at the Gas Pump and Conscious.TV. After two decades of studying various spiritual traditions and self-help modalities, the simplicity of Gabor’s approach, to become free of our thoughts, appealed to me. I've been seeking the root of spirituality in a quest to know who I am and how to live a full, unbounded life but have gotten lost amid dogma, intellectuality, and obfuscation.
“Functional Silence presents a reasoned and original explanation for those interested in awakening. I've never read a book quite like this. It offers unique metaphors that bypass the well-trodden explanations about awakening. I especially appreciated the reminders placed throughout admonishing that nothing is to be held too dearly—that the words are only a vehicle for a greater end that words can't touch.”
