Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I remember one story that my grandmother told me when I was a kid. It was a story of a small boy who calls out to God (Krishna) when he is in need and gets helped out. This small story has planted the seed of divinity and trust in divine in me. Stories, images, music, art goes directly into sub-conscious mind and impact in a big way. I think that is the reason why the spiritual truths are told in various stories called Puranas in Hinduism. The stories of Gods and Goddesses may or may not be true, but the moral truths conveyed by them, when told to kids will stay with them their entire life.
How do you approach cover design?
I am not an artist, but I approach the cover design to match what is the content inside. For ex : the cover for Dhyanajyothi is about a meditative person, and behind him is a rising sun of awareness.
In this book Pandavas are cheated by Kauravas in a game of dice and take all their wealth and banish them to forest for 14 years.
I have recorded my study of Mahabharata second chapter Sabhaparva in this ebook.
Mahabharata is history of India, an epic war that ended one era and ushered in the current era. It is a story of what is Dharma, what is right or wrong.
Mahabharata is history of India, an epic war that ended one era and ushered in the current era. It is a story of what is Dharma, what is right or wrong. Characters of all shades of human psychology and emotions appear in this book. It is a case study of all types of personalities and situations. This book is the first chapter ‘Adiparva’ of Mahabharata a.k.a Jayakavya.
Patanjali Yogasutras is a masterpiece on human psychology, a practical guide for all spiritual aspirants, and a map for spiritual journey. Sage Patanjali codified these sutras on yoga for the benefit of spiritual practitioners. The sutras are arranged in four chapters. I have tried to give the meaning of each sutra and what I understood about them.
This is a spiritual diary.
I have recorded my thought process over a period of 4 years since I met my Guru. When I met him in 2009, my mind was noisy, and compared to that, today my mind is extremely peaceful. I attribute that to the way Guruji guided the confused mind out of that state over a period of time, by clarifying the doubts of the intellect.
Dhyanajyothi, Light of Meditation, is a collection of various ancient meditation techniques, aimed at achieving peace of mind. It includes techniques based on Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, Bhagavad-Gita and other generally available ones. It is a practical how-to guide, rather than elaborated lengthy philosophical discussions.
Yoga jyoti is a simple guide to Patanjali yoga. Spirituality and yoga are inseparable. This book tries to explain the yoga practices and how they are spiritually beneficial. This book describes few yoga asana, pranayama, mudra, kundalini yoga and the notes I have taken from my interactions with Sadguru M. Narasimha Prabhu and my understanding of two chapters of Patanjali Yogasutra.

Absolute masterpiece on enlightenment. Shiva sutras is an ancient treatise of kashmiri shaivism, and nobody could have explained it so succintly if that person has not experienced the Truth firsthand. The simplicity of the explanation, text as well as diagrams, brings the enlightenment into the easy understanding and grasp of the reader. Must read for any person who wants to understand enlightenment, self-realization, nirvana, mukti, jivanmukti, moksha.
