Divine Messengers of Our Time
Divine Messengers of Our Time
Description
From the Jacket

The present book contains essays on the lives and teachings of the ten remarkable spiritual masters of our time.

Like the divinely inspired prophets in the past, these later day sages have also been showing us the superiority of the spiritual and eternal over the mundane and the transient. That the path of righteous leads to peace, happiness and salvation is part and parcel of their timeless message. The life and teachings of the following masters have been included in this book Mahatma Gandhi, Yogaswami, Sri Aurobindo, Ramana Maharshi, Swami Ramdas, Swami Siyananda, Paramahansa Yogananda, Srila Prabhupada, Peace Pilgrim, and Bishrul Hafi.

The book includes portraits of the masters and a glossary of the terms used in the book.

Susunaga Weeraperuma is a Doctor of Letters who enjoys living in the quietness of the medieval Provencal village of Les Arcs-sur-Argens in France. Born in Sri Lanka where he was raised in the Buddhist religion, Weeraperuma has been spending the major part of the life in England, Australia, Switzerland and France.

After taking a Master’s degree in Economics and Politics at London University, he qualified as a Librarian and thereafter became a senior member of staff in the British Library and the South Australian Parliamentary Library. It was during the period that he wrote several works on Library and the South Australian Parliamentary Library. It was during this period that he wrote several works on Library Science and complied an extensive Krishnamurti bibliography.

Following early retirement, Weeraperuma now devotes his time to contemplation, writing, yoga and gardening. The author of 18 published books including 2 collections of short stories, his works are mostly about religion and spiritual growth. Some of his important books are as follows: Major Religions of India, J. Krishnamurti as I Knew Him, Living and Dying from Moment to Moment, That Pathless Land, Bliss of Reality, Homage to Yogaswami, Servant of God and The Higher Life.

Preface

These essays deal with the lives and teachings of ten remarkable spiritual masters of our time.

Like the divinely inspired prophets in days of yore, these latter-day sages have also been showing us the superiority of the spiritual and the eternal over the mundane and the transient. That the path of righteousness leads to peace, happiness and salvation is part and parcel of their timeless message.

Most of these divine messengers were so influential that they somehow succeeded in changing the outlook on life of many people. Indeed some of their noble qualities such as altruism and compassion rubbed off onto a few of their followers. Although I never managed to ascend to their celestial heights, their words and deeds have certainly had a _ great impact on my inner life and being. Consequently, I felt impelled to record these facts, especially because I had the chance to know some of them in person. Bishrul Hafi is an old friend; meeting Yogaswami thrice and having conversations with this reclusive mystic was a privilege indeed; I have not only attended lectures on religious subjects given by Swami Sivananda and Swami Ramdas but I have also corresponded with the former. My reminiscences of these great and unforgettable men of God are included in this volume in order to enhance its value.

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.

An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.
Oreste, USA
I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
