Robe of Light CoverRobe of Light

An Esoteric Christian Cosmology

by Abbot George Burke (Swami Nirmalananda Giri)

“Where am I?…How did I get here?” is more than a trite line from nineteenth century melodramas and novels. It is a query put forth by potential sages throughout the history of conscious mankind.

When asked on a cosmic scale, it is bold indeed: What is this universe I keep finding myself in, and how did I get here? That is answered by esoteric Christian cosmology.

In Robe of Light Abbot George Burke explores the whys and wherefores of the mystery of creation. From the emanation of the worlds from the very Being of God, to the evolution of the souls to their ultimate destiny as perfected Sons of God, the ideal progression of creation is described. Since the rebellion of Lucifer and the fall of Adam and Eve from Paradise flawed the normal plan of evolution, a restoration was necessary. How this came about is the prime subject of this insightful study.

Moreover, what this means to aspirants for spiritual perfection is expounded, with a compelling knowledge of the scriptures and of the mystical traditions of East and West.

About Abbot George’s writing: “As informed and informative as it is inspired and inspiring”.
—James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief, Midwest Book Review

“Abbot George is like the Emily Dickinson of modern day spiritual writers.” —Reverend Gerry Nangle



★★★★★ Russ Thomas at

Having previously read several offerings from the pen of Abbot George Burke I was anticipating this work to be well written and an enjoyable read. However, Robe of Light actually exceeded my expectations. Abbot Burke explicates the subject perfectly …, making a difficult and complex subject like Christian cosmology accessible to those of us who are not great theologians. The book offers just enough depth to be captivating while leaving room for further meditation and study.

Another must-have read for the student of the spirit, written with Burke’s down-to-earth ease and manner, in terms we can all process and understand.
