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.

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.

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.
"Temples with multiple deities can be confusing, especially for today's Hindu youth. For clarity, we need to bring forward a more precise understanding of the different Hindu denominations and how the different Gods are viewed from within each denomination. For spiritual advancement it is best to focus on one deity and get to the vibration that deity. When we hear teachings from various Hindus, it is important to understand and identify which denomination they are speaking from. This will avert confusion when that teaching gets contradicted in a different context where someone is talking about the same subject but from a different philosophical background."
Bodhinatha reviews the main characteristic of Saivite philosophy and practice with an indepth focus on the four stages of religions evolution, chariya, kriya, yoga and jnana. He highlights how this shows that Saiva Siddhanta is unique and quite from the modern practice of Hinduism as Vedanta
