Anandagiriji and Eckhart Tolle spiritual awakening

Our Anandagiriji and Eckhart Tolle Have they met each other? Does anyone can tell?
It's just because I found a CD just being released on October 21st, and if you look closely at the title of the first song, what is actually written there? And if you click to listen to it, isn't it Deva Premal singing the Moolamantra?!
Its written as Incantation Anandagiriji/Traditional 2:56
Eckhart Tolle's Music to Quiet the Mind
It would simply be fantastic if Oneness and the Power of Now would collaborate, also because their teachings are so obviously similar. But how could it not be? As both speak directly from the heart of truth, from Presence.
If you don't know Eckhart, he is the author of A New Earth and The Power of Now, the ladder being his first book which is a 3 million pieces 32 languages bestseller and one of the most profound guidebooks - if not the most profound - on spiritual awakening and transformation
and more over check out his new books title Oneness with All Life

This book is beautifully packaged with evocative artwork and design, Oneness with All Life highlights the most inspiring and beautiful insights of A New Earth.

In A New Earth, Eckhart Tolle describes how our current ego-based state of consciousness operates. The purpose of this book is to bring about a shift in consciousness, or in his words, an awakening. An essential part of this awakening is the recognition of the ego, and our attachment to things, the past, and enemies. In this new edition, Eckhart Tolle has picked the essential phrases and paragraphs—the gems of the book—that he feels are most important. These words are displayed in a lavish design that will surely make this edition the most sought-after book for the holidays.

Contemplative Questions

Here is a set of questions that would provoke you and put you through some soul searching. They are not about religion nor about ethics. They are merely about you.

They are not meant to serve as solutions nor are they meant to lead you anywhere. These questions are meant to serve as tools to discovering yourself.

1) Do you perceive the Presence of a benevolent force guiding, protecting and shaping your life? What name do you give that Presence? When did you best feel this Presence?

2) What is your opinion of God? Is your opinion drawn from religion, books, parents and or your personal experience of life?

3) Do you pray? Do they get answered? How often?

4) Do you think it is possible to relate to the Divine? What relationship would you opt?

5) Here is a story for you - Two fierce enemies once did a penance to placate god and receive boons vying with each other. God appeared to the first man and asked what he wanted. He said "give me twice of whatever you give my enemy". Then God appeared to the second one. Even before God could say anything he asked, "God, would you please tell me what my enemy asked for? On knowing his prayer request, he said, "then God, blind me in one eye."
Now what would you wish for yourself, your best friend and your worst enemy if God gave you a chance?

6) Have you ever experienced a coincidence or chance that seems to have involved so many people and factors that you can't stop wondering if a mastermind was behind this operation? If yes, do you savour the experience often and have you shared it with someone close to you?
