It was Gurudeva, once again, who led the way. The book that tells the compelling stories of his spiritual visions is the first one that Himalayan Academy officially launches in the epub format, ready for you to read in your iPhone or iPad.
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.
If you have not seen this book yet, you are missing a rich description of a mystic’s inner life. We have never seen any book like it.
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.
Realizing the self in the Jailani caves.
Now you can carry this book always with you in digital format. Just search for “Gurudeva” in the iBook store and you will easily find it.
We are still working on a Kindle version. Stay tuned.
Aum Namah Sivaya.

Bodhinatha's Latest Upadeshas: "The Difference in Practice of Theism and Monism" (September 3, 2014)
During a puja we're in Theism, to receive the blessings of the Deity. After a puja we can go within our self in meditation, giving up the idea of an external Deity, Monism. Monistic Theism: Advaita Ishvaravada. Advaita means the Monism; Ishvara means the Theism.
In Shum we use two words that relate to that: shumif and dimfi. First, perfect your Theism. Then become a monist. That's called Saiva Siddhanta; one leads to the other.
