Written in a beautiful, simple and conversational style, Sadhviji covers the most pertinent issues affecting all of us – how to discover inner peace, find love, let go of anger, know your purpose, and connect with God, regardless of your religion.
Whether speaking of the blind man who can “see” without the use of his eyes or finding unity with the President of the World Bank, Sadhviji tells personal stories of the people and events that have shaped her. She questions our preconceived notions and attitudes about diet, culture, technology, and development. She reflects on the changes that are coming to the West and to India, the land that she now calls home. As we follow Sadhviji’s reflections, over twenty highly readable chapters, we have the opportunity to reconsider our own frames of reference. Mother Ganges is a book of observation, love, and inquiry. In the reading, we are invited to look at our lives and values with new eyes—a new way of seeing. And we are offered guideposts for our own spiritual journeys.
In this book, Sadhviji delves into the Eastern and Western methods and models of health, healing and wholeness. And, of Course, there is still the neuropsychology,for as she found, science and spirituality can actually intersect and overlap. Her conclusions are applicable to people of every culture and every country.
A gorgeous, nearly 300 page coffee table book filled with exquisite photos of Ganga, the Himalayas, and all of the saints and world leaders with whom Pujya Swamiji has spent the first 60 years of His life. However, it is more than just a beautiful beautiful book. It also tells the inspiring, uplifting and transformative stories of Pujya Swamiji’s whole life — from meeting His Guru at the tender age of eight, to His youth filled with intense sadhana in the Himalayan forests and jungles, to ujya Swamiji’s arrival into Rishikesh and His life at Parmarth Niketan, first as a young student and then as head of one of India’s largest spiritual institutions. You will read about His travels around the world, touching and teaching people of all religions, all cultures and all walks of life. The book further details Pujya Swamiji’s unparalleled projects and achievements including the eleven volume Encyclopedia of Hinduism, the construction of three ashrams in the sacred land of Lake Mansarovar and Mt. Kailash in Tibet, widespread tsunami relief work and now an unprecedented project to clean, preserve and protect the 2500 kilometer divine Ganga.
Lastly, even though for those blessed to know Him, we all understand that His life is His message, the book also includes special “teaching” sections in between the chronological chapters. Each special teaching spread takes one of Pujya Swamiji’s most fundamental teachings and shares it, in His own words, through His own voice, on gorgeously illustrated pages.
