Book DescriptionThe Beast in the title refers to the crude materialistic culture that is so pervasive in a society dominated by mass media. Gulbekian shows spiritual seekers that, rather than shunning this perceived evil, you can actively and spirituallyengage it, thereby transforming it from the inside out. Part 1 introduces this concept of getting within the skin of pop culture in order to change it and yourself for the better. Part 2 examines a diverse blend of pop culture happenings from the past decade and shows you how cultural events can be transformed into an opportunity for spiritual growth. From Gangsta Rap and "Beavis and Butt-head" to Prince Charles and Princess Diana; to media coverage of the Persian Gulf War, "In the Belly of the Beast" illustrates how these mainstream cultural trends are symptoms of larger undercurrents in the spiritual world and so need to be understood rather than avoided.
