Description
About the Book

The JSD course, meticulously designed by renowned spiritualists, has evolved over 30+ years. It is timeless wisdom made practical and accessible to the modern man.

Since decades, scientists, businessmen, religionists, savants, students and home-makers alike, in 100+ cities across the globe, continue to be fascinated and intrigued by its easy and engaging presentation.

Introduction

Radha Gopinath das (a pioneer of this JSD course) shares, "This course was originally envisaged and delivered by HH Radhanath Swami in 1989-90 in Mumbai, India, after years of teaching spirituality in American universities. Over the years, this course has developed in its present from through the added precious realisations of many many teachers who have taught this course to thousands of student on practically every populated continent of this planet."

Journey of Sri Discovery (JSD) course covers the five main topics of the Bhagavad Gita:

(a) isvara – controller
(b) jiva – soul
(c) prakti – nature
(d) kala- time
(e) karma – activities

in six parts. Each part contains several chapters which in turn are divided into sections printed in blue colour for easier understanding of the flow. The subsections are printed in red colour.

Part one introduces us to the concept of permanent happiness. The temporary happiness of this world could compliment and not always contradict this eternal elixir.

Since this divine bliss is proposed to be within our hearts as our natural relationship with the Supreme Being, part two begins with scientific evidences that point to Gid's existence and a clear-cut universal definition of God. It also describes how the Vedas are the scientific authority for knowledge about the Supreme. The distinction between blind faith and reasonable faith is established.

If part two defines God. Part three define our temporary and permanent identities as eternal loving beings. With logic, science and scripture we get clarity on our three bodies.

Part four delves into various spiritual paths and religions to answer questions like 'Is there one God or many gods?' 'Why are there so many contradictory religions and scriptures if God is one?' And 'Who is the Supreme Beloved and do demigods really exist?'

Part five is arguably the most popular session on 'Why bad things happen to good people?' Describing the laws of action and reaction, karma, the above question is answered in detail.

Part five is arguably the most popular session on 'Why bad things happen to good people?' Describing the laws of action and reaction, karna, the above question is answered in detail.

Part six is the practical application of spirituality in our daily lives. What is the use of knowledge the can's be applied and realised in our own lives? The proof and relish of the pudding is in eating it!

Each chapter in this book is complete and builds on the previous. Since each chapter deals with the subject in summary, further study on each concept is recommended. Some chapters like 'Do life, species and the universe come by chance?', 'The Aryan invasion theory' in part to can be skipped if they are not relevant to certain readers.

If this book is sufficient to understand this entire JSD course, then why would need teachers for it? This book provides the information, and we would need teachers and facilitators to elicit the spiritual inspiration. Therefore we request each facilitator to choose only the most relevant contents of this book to fulfil the needs of your specific audience in every course.

Students, of course, would get all the information herein. Practical guidance for further pogress would come from the shining hearts of teachers who have personal experience of travelling on this most beautiful, delightful and supreme path of life.

This book is a compilation gleaned from notes and lectures of many great souls, who have patiently and wonderfully answered hundreds of questions asked by eager students. Our deepest gratitude and obeisance's to each and every one of them. If we have failed to acknowledge any of you, please inform us and allow us to mention you in the next edition.

There would be many more questions that our readers and teachers may face. There would definitely be other perspectives and presentations for the questions raised. We would love to hear both the questions and comments on the answers written within this book. We would also be grateful to receive corrections for any biases or mistakes that we may have committed in our compilation despite our best attempt to present what we have heard from our superiors.

In this course book, we have attempted to keep the language simple, with or student of this course, to take even a single step forward on their spiritual journeys, we would consider ourselves blessed to b of some assistance and our endeavours successful.

Very grateful for this service, of making this precious treasure of Haveli Sangeet for ThakurJi so easily in the US. Appreciate the fact that notation is provided.
Leena, USA.
The Bhairava painting I ordered by Sri Kailash Raj is excellent. I have been purchasing from Exotic India for well over a decade and am always beyond delighted with my extraordinary purchases and customer service. Thank you.
Marc, UK
I have been buying from Exotic India for years and am always pleased and excited to receive my packages. Thanks for the quality products.
Delia, USA
As ever, brilliant price and service.
Howard, UK.
The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!
Charles (Rudra)
I just wanted to say that this is I think my 3rd (big) order from you, and the last two times I received immaculate service, the books arrived well and it has been a very pleasant experience. Just wanted to say thanks for your efficient service.
Shantala, Belgium

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
