Ecstasy in Secular and Religious Experiences
Marghanita Laski
This is a clear and comprehensive overview of the varieties of ecstatic experience.

1 "I did comprehend the whole world….and the abyss and ocean and all things. In all these things I beheld naught save the divine power." Angela of Foligno

2 "I have been reading all day, confined to my room, and feel tired. I raise the screen and face the broad daylight. I move the chair on the verandah and look at the blue mountains. I draw a deep breath, fill my lungs with fresh air and feel entirely refreshed. I make tea and drink a cup or two of it. Who would say that I am not living in the light of eternity?" D. Suzuki, 'Mysticism, Christian and Buddhist'
