About the Author

Sankarshan Das Adhikari was born in St. Loius, Missouri, in 1947. His spiritual quest began early in life. He questioned the basic assumptions of material life at their very roots and rejected the material way of life.

With an intense search for spiritual enlightenment, he met his spiritual master His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada in 1971, and saw that this person had genuine profound spiritual insights that transcended this world and everything in it.

For over 43 years, he has uninterruptedly served his spiritual master, and travels around the world practically nonstop to instruct and guide thousands of sincere students around the world. His worldwide Ultimate Self Realizaton Course has over 17,000 subscribers from over 100 countries.

"His sage advice, dispensed in thousands of emails over many years and gathered here in an easy-to-read and well indexed format, is given weight by his strict personal adherence to the principles and sadhana of Krishna consciousness.

He is indeed a man who practices what he preaches, and therefore his presentation is not merely words; he has deep realization that affects the heart of his readers and illuminates their consciousness.

It is therefore no surprise that he has inspired thousands of souls globally to take advantage of the philosophy of the Bhagavad-gita and the Srimad Bhagavatam and make their human lives successful.

This book is a significant and natural product of a well lived and a life lived for the welfare of others. In producing this book Sankarshan prabhu is fulfilling one of Srila Prabhupadas most important instructions that every one of his disciples should write and thus increase the storehouse of wisdom for the immediate and future betterment of mankind.

I encourage the reader to dive deeply into the contents of this book, for by so doing ones life will automatically be enriched.


There is absolutely no reason for anybody to ever be in anxiety again. Anxiety is an unnatural psychological condition for the living being. The only reason that anybody is ever in anxiety is due the ignorance of the science of the self, known in Sanskrit as atma-tattva. This science is not based on mental speculation or imaginative ecstasy. It is instead based on the pure, unadulterated nature of the self in his or her relationship with the Supreme Self, who is known by different names such as Krishna, Allah, Jehovah, etc. in the world's various revealed scriptures. That relationship is based on pure selfless love, free from even the slightest tinge of selfishness.

After many years of tortuous struggle in the 1960s, in the days of my youth, trying to discover the purpose of my existence and freedom from all miseries, I finally found a spiritual master of the transcendental science of the self, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, who fully revealed to all me all of the secrets of this ultimate science, which he presented as Krishna consciousness. I was indeed most fortunate to recognize this unparalleled opportunity, and thus I took full advantage of this great master's unfathomed kindness by opening my mind and heart fully to his amazingly profound, all-inclusive teachings. He patiently and lovingly guided me in how to fully reconnect myself in a loving relationship with Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and instructed me to make the knowledge of this ultimate self-realization science fully available to the entire human society. In 2003, in pursuance of his desire, I went online with Ultimate Self-Realization Course, which has now attracted over 16,000 members in over 100 countries. My students are every day writing me many questions regarding how to awaken their dormant, enlightened consciousness and become perfect in this science.


Congratulations. You now have Truth Works, Volume One in your hands. Just in case you are wondering how this book came into existence, here's how it happened:

Back in September of 1965, as a freshman at Austin College in Sherman, Texas USA, I was quite perplexed to know the meaning of life. None of my professors, textbooks, dorm buddies, songwriting heroes, or extracurricular readings could give me a satisfactory answer. My parents, my minister, my best friend-all of my mentors had failed me. No one around me even seemed to think it was a question worth asking, what to speak of finding out the answer. Everyone was content to go for material success. From a material point of view I was doing fine. My grades, my academic marks, were high enough to earn me a place on the Austin College Dean's List for academically advanced students. But there was a void in my heart because I didn't know who I am and what the purpose of my existence is. After two years of liberal arts studies, my academic advisor told me that now I had to choose a major field of study for earning my degree. But in my condition, choosing a major did not make any sense. I was thinking: "How can I choose a major when I don't even know the purpose of my existence? Without this knowledge choosing a major is irrelevant. Why should I work so hard to make good grades, to get a good degree, to get a good job, to get a good car, a good house, a good wife, some good kids, and a good retirement-simply to get a good velvet-lined coffin for being buried six feet under the ground and to get some good flowers on my grave once a year until people forget about me? There's got to be more to life than this! It just couldn't be this bleak!" I just had to find the existential answers. I would never be happy until 1 did.
