Description
Vol-1

Preface

Saint Tukaram Maharaj says, without the help of a Sadguru, we cannot find our path to Moksha (Final Liberation); hence, we should first hold the Guru's feet, that is, we should make efforts to obtain His grace. Saint Tukaram Maharaj further asks, 'Why are people blind? They have forgotten God (Sadguru)'.

Today, the daily life of most people is filled with hectic activity and problems. One who imparts precise knowledge on appropriate spiritual practice for acquiring peace of mind and Anand (Bliss) and how to perform it is none other than the Guru. As Saint Tukaram Maharaj rightly says, today's society has forgotten the importance of the Guru. The importance of the Guru described in this Holy text will help in creating faith in the Guru in the minds of the spiritually curious and the seekers.

In the life of a disciple, the Guru holds supreme importance; because a disciple cannot realise God without Guru. Through this Holy text, the disciple will understand the true nature of the Guru through various aspects such as the Guru's form exhibiting paternal love for the devotee, His compassionate nature, various mediums of bestowing grace on the disciple etc. This will lead to strengthening of devotion in the disciple unto the Guru and he will be able to obtain maximum benefit from the existence of the Guru.

The disciple is convinced of the Guru's importance; because, he has experienced the Guru's spiritual power. However, the individual in today's scientific era accepts only that which is tested by science; only then he believes in Spirituality and begins his spiritual journey. In this context, we have performed various experiments by using ‘PIP’ scientific technology on the photographs of our Guru H.H. Bhaktaraj Maharaj (Baba). A unique feature of this Holy text is a novel elucidation on how the greatness of the Guru is proved with the help of science.

Vol-2

Preface

The importance of the Guru is exceptional in the life of the disciple, because he cannot realize God without the Guru. What is the difference between Guru, Sadguru and Paratpar Guru? How to recognize a fake Guru? What are the attributes of a true Guru? What are the misconceptions about the Guru-mantra? Which is the true Gurumantra? etc. Such issues have been dealt with in this Holy text.

Testimonials
Very fast and straight forward.
Elaine, New Zealand
Good service.
Christine, Taiwan.
I received my Manjushri statue today and I can't put in words how delighted I am with it! Thank you very much. It didn't take very long to get here (the UK) - I wasn't expecting it for a few more weeks. Your support team is very good at providing customer service, too. I must conclude that you have an excellent company.
Mark, UK.
A very comprehensive site for a company with a good reputation.
Robert, UK

Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
Steven, USA
