Book Description
About the Book

The gift of human life is God's greatest gift to man. If this be so, the life of a saint, a man of God, is the Lord's gift to all humanity. For, from such a life flows out an unending stream of grace - joy, love, peace, hope and faith - which can heal, soothe, support and sustain us. There is, in such a life, the magic of love; the touch that can transform minds and hearts; the power that cleanses and purifies our lesser lives, that yearn for such wholeness and joy.

Life & Teachings of Sadhu Vaswani is the biography of a modern day saint, Sadhu Vaswani. What makes the biography special is that it is a record of the memoirs of his devoted disciple and spiritual heir, Dada J. P. Vaswani. Here is a book, which is twice blessed- doubly graced.

Compilers' Note

If we are blessed in our lifetime, we meet just one or two persons who enter into our consciousness and bring about a transformation in our lives. And the whole direction of our lives is changed, because of them. One such was Beloved Dada, Sadhu Vaswani. He brought about a transformation in the lives of many by the power of his love, which opened up our cabined, stuffy souls and let the sunshine of God's grace flow in.

Today, thousands of aspiring souls in many parts of the world regard Beloved Dada as the light of their life. His was a life of singular simplicity blended with selfless activity. His greatness lay not in doing extraordinary things but in doing ordinary things extraordinarily well. His life was a long chain of little deeds of love. His philosophy of life was simple. And his prescription for happiness was, "Make others happy and you will be happy!"

In his writings, utterances and discourses, the author - Dada J. P. Vaswani - refers copiously to stirring and elevating incidents from Sadhu Vaswani's life. This book is not a comprehensive biography of Sadhu Vaswani, but an endeavour has been made to bring together a few glimpses from the beautiful, inspirational life of the great Master. His entire life was a shining witness of a God dressed in the form of a man.

Sadhu Vaswani's life was a picture gallery - pictures that still have the power to attract, to teach, to inspire.

Every picture has an experience to share, a message to give.

Every picture is radiant with the love of God and the God-in- man, and with the light of the soul.

From his very childhood, Dada J.P. Vaswani lived in close association with Sadhu T.L. Vaswani, who was not only his uncle but also his Guru. The stories and incidents brought together in this book have been written from the direct, first-hand knowledge of the author. The incidents are therefore so vividly narrated that they carry the reader on the wings of imagination, to witness in person, the real life-story of this holy man of God.
