The Master Book of Candle Burning: How to Burn Candles for Every Purpose
The Master Book of Candle Burning: How to Burn Candles for Every Purpose by Henri Gamache contains powerful Psalm rituals with detailed pictures on how to set up and burn specific candle altars.
Excerpt from the back cover:
"How can I burn candles in a manner which will bring me the most satisfaction and consolation?"
In order to answer that question, it is necessary to eliminate all technical, dry and often times torturous historical background. It is necessary to sift and sort every fact, scrutinze every detail, search for the kernel.
It is to be hoped that this volume answers that question in a manner which is satisfactory to the reader. It has been necessary, of course, to include some historical data and other anthropological data in order to better illustrate the symbolism involved in modern candle burning as practiced by so many people today.
This data has been accumulated from many sources: it has been culled from literally hundreds of books and articles. The modern rituals outlined here are based upon practices which have been described my mediums, spiritual advisors, evangelists, religious interpreters and others who should be in a position to know.
It has been the author's desire to interpret and explain the basic symbolism involved in a few typical exercises so that the reader may recognize this symbolism and proceed to develop his own symbolim in accorance with the great beauty and highest ethics of the Art.
