To access it, you need the iBooks app. Just go to the App store on your iPhone or iPad, download the free app and you will be able to purchase the ebook.
This is how it looks on the iPad.
As technology progresses, it gets closer and closer to the spiritual realms. Imagine having hundreds of books in your hands, easily accessible. It’s not the Akasha, from which Gurudeva read many times, but we are getting there.

It is illustrated with colorful pieces by the late S. Rajam of Chennai.
Gurudeva’s experiences began even before he learned to talk.
Vintage photos make the book even more appealing. This is Gurudeva’s passport when he went to Sri Lanka to meet his guru, Yogaswami.
