Our book team is now in the final stages of preparing our upcoming book, The Guru Chronicles for the press. Final details being worked on at this stage include cover measurements based on a physical mock-up produced by our printer in Kuala Lumpur, checking all the layouts with the color-corrected artwork in place, applying for a Library of Congress Control Number, proofreading, finalizing the index and choosing a cover price. As promised, here is the front cover in its final form. Jai Ganesha!
Like many others, I so eagerly, eagerly, await the release of this book! Who among Gurudeva’s devotee’s isn’t thirsty for a story or even a tidbit of Gurudeva’s miraculous life they haven’t heard before?
Many thanks to the tireless efforts of the GK and Bodhinatha for compiling this sacred biography.
I can only imagine the process all of you went through to create this. I’m certain that from the idea to the first delivered book Lord Ganesa was close at hand and made obvious at key points of discovery and conversations. This will become yet another plank in the bridge between East and West. May this book get into the right bookstores (and libraries) and into the right hands and change many, many, many lives. Aum Namasivaya
Learning and being strongly influenced by Gurudeva’s teachings, I await excitingly for the release of this new book. The Sanatana Dharma has had a very positive effect upon myself and others whom I dearly love.
The letter "Ya" in the Panchakshara Mantra, Namasivaya, stands for the soul. Bodhinatha uses the Panchakshara Mantra to show how the soul is initially drawn by Siva's veiling grace, which leads the soul to maturity through experience in the world. Then comes Siva's revealing grace. When we've had enough of the world, Siva's grace pulls us toward God. The mantra also has the simple, two-syllable form. Si- Reflecting on God the Transcendent Absolute, Va-God as the All Pervading Consciousness
