DEVI PRESS - SPIRITUAL BOOKS FOR THE HEART
A story of light, love and bodacious spiritual adventures
In 1967 at the age of seventeen, Ethan was unsuspectingly catapulted from an intellectual ivory tower of atheism to swimming in the ocean of the Divine in one blinding, mind-melting flash of insight. He never looked back. This is the story of a lifetime of spiritual pursuit. From LSD to the cultural revolution to the Rosicrucians to the I Am School to the Summit Lighthouse to Self-inquiry (non-duality) to love and devotion – bhakti - with priceless guidance from his guru Amma beginning in 1988. This is one man’s journey, spanning more than fifty years, through the brambles and the thickets; through the ancient halls of mystery, the pure emptiness of being and into the bliss of the Divine Light. This is a story of love, love and more love; a transfiguration from mind to Heart.

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 Blue Cliff Record
The Blue Cliff Record is a collection of Koans originating in China. Koans may be described as short sayings or conversations among masters and disciples and between masters. They are something of a puzzle and are intended to bring the mind to a place of stillness. They are part of the practice of Chan which became known as Zen when it migrated to Japan and other countries. Bhodi Dharma (picture to the left) is credited with bringing the teaching from India to China. By clicking the link above, we can read a few of the well known koans with commentary.
