The Path To Bliss
Over 5,000 years ago, Rama, the God Man / avatar,walked the earth to restore truth and dharma. As a young boy not yet 16 years old, he ponders the nature of the world. Pulling back the curtain of Maya, exposing the underbelly of the psychosis of human kind, he is astonished to find that we are living in a dream world wholly divorced from reality. In the opening pages of the classic Hindu spiritual text Yoga Vasistha, he explains his disillusionment and his dispassion toward worldly existence to his father and his guru Sri Vasistha. He does this with astonishing force and poetic beauty. This book, Rama’s Most Excellent Dispassion, presents Rama’s oration and follows with an exploration of the meaning and scope of Rama’s disillusionment. Rama’s dispassion is both radical and blissful. It is the agony and the ecstasy. It is a precious opportunity for the reader to unfold spiritually and swim in the ocean of cosmic love and light.

The Ecsatsy of Divine Love as a Path to God
The deepest longing of every soul is to experience the Divine directly, personally and intimately. To have this direct communion is the purpose of our human birth and nothing else in all of eternity will ever satisfy us or truly make us happy. The path to this is hidden and Jesus said few will find it. It is not something that can be found in any church or any book as it must be searched for and discovered in the Heart. At the center of our being, there is a doorway to God's infinite light, love and bliss. It is here, within us, that God waits for us – calling for us – yearning for our love. The kingdom of God is truly within us - Luke 17:21. This book is a comprehensive guide to this greatest of all human endeavors - the Divine Romance; the lover and the Beloved; the eternal Companion.
Jesus prescribed a path to this ecstatic union with His two commandments – love your God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength and love your neighbor as your own self. In Luke 10:25, Jesus says practicing these two commandments is all that is necessary to attain eternal life. In this book, is a thorough discussion of the practice of Jesus' commandments including theory, history, techniques and pitfalls. Love is what every soul needs more than anything else. Love is what is most needed in the world. Divine Love and how to become that love is the primary focus of this book.
As an aid to practicing Jesus' first commandment to love God, a collection of 108 phrases describing key aspects of the Lord's teachings and life events has been provided with commentary. Chanting these with love and devotion is one way that we can increase the fire of our love for the Beloved. There is nothing in all of eternity that is sweeter, more magnificent, more illuminating, more liberating, more healing or more blissful than spiritual love for the Divine. So take off your clothes, empty your mind and step into the ocean of God's infinite love!

Save the Earth, Save Your Health, Save the Animals
The greatest single repository of evil on the planet today is the eating of farmed animal products. It is destroying our planet, destroying our health and causing intense suffering for billions of farmed animals. 90 percent of the clearing of the rainforest in South America is for the raising of beef cattle. Farmed animals produce more greenhouse gas than all modes of human transportation combined. The practice is very wasteful and inefficient as It takes eleven pounds of grain to make one pound of beef. Animal agriculture consumes more fresh water by far than all human consumption combined. And this is only the tip of the iceberg. According to the United Nations and the World Health Organization, we will need to stop the practice of animal agriculture if the human race is to survive. The seriousness of this cannot be understated. The practice of raising livestock for human consumption is wholly unsustainable.
Most people are not aware of the horrific suffering animals endure at the hands of profit motivated meat and dairy producing enterprises. Animals endure this suffering and have been enslaved by human kind for only one reason and that is to satisfy our taste buds. This is the worst of all possible reasons to ask an animal to suffer and to slaughtered at a very young age.
Numerous comprehensive scientific studies such as the China Study, have proven beyond all doubt that eating animal flesh and dairy products is very detrimental to our health causing, cancer, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes and many more debilitating diseases.
Read this book and watch the videos Forks Over Knives, Cowspiracy and Earthlings. Do some research and then change to a plant-based, whole-foods cuisine. Save the earth, save your health and save the animals! Do it now before it's too late!

A Field Handbook for Exploring the Divine World of Mata Amritanandamayi
Mata Amritanandamayi, commonly known as Amma, is a mysterious and supremely powerful river of unconditional love. Having never taken even a single breath for herself, she has come to this world only to give. The rest of us, as seekers, as children of light, have a very rare opportunity in being able to have access to such a Divine phenomenon. If we are suffering she gives comfort. If we are intent on the Divine, she gives instruction and direct experience. She is always giving with a tremendous outpouring of love and compassion that is a wonder to behold.
Amma asks nothing in return. We can keep our religion or current path if we like. We are not asked to sign up for anything. Amma will help is with whatever spiritual endeavor we may have undertaken – no strings attached. Amma says her religion is love.
Amma’s “largeness” is beyond understanding but what we can see is profoundly astonishing. It is the purpose of this book to give a brief view of Amma’s life, accomplishments and her uplifting impact on people just like us. We will have to look far and wide in the scrolls of human history to find a Divine manifestation that has done as much for humanity, is as powerful as Amma and, at the same time, so supremely accessible to anyone and everyone.
In the past 40 years Amma has tirelessly hugged over 34 million people. Why would anyone do this and do it for free? This alone speaks to the fact that Amma is a Divine person extraordinarily endowed with the ocean of Divine Shakti (power) and limitless love. Her charities for the poor and the suffering are vast. It boggle’s the mind to consider that all this was done by a short, cute Indian lady, born into a very poor family who never made it past the fourth grade. Dear reader, you are invited to step into this book and see what Amma has to offer you.
