Jason Gregory is a teacher and international speaker specializing in the fields of Eastern and Western philosophy, comparative religion, metaphysics, and ancient cultures. He is convinced that "the science of humility" is the evolutionary path into the future as embodied by Sri Rama Maharishi, Thich Nhat Hanh, and His Holiness the Dalai Lama, to name three enlightened masters of this virtue: "The fragrance of humility is an art that inspires others to change, brought forth by our enlightened masters from their mystical abode."

Gregory sees this process as a reversal of complexity into simplicity. This is a hard path to follow in times where everything around us is chaotic. The author sees humility as an alternative to the omnipresent warrior consciousness which is animated by ego, arrogance, and anger. He concludes that "Humility is the foundational cornerstone for realizing the receptive nature of the universe."
