A Lie And a Truth: Encounter With A Spiritual Master
A Lie And a Truth: Encounter With A Spiritual Master
Description
Author’s Note

I First Met Bharat Thakur in the summer of 1999. He introduced himself as a spiritual master, but he hardly behaved like one. I was never sure that he was enlightened. And there was no certain way to find out either. Sometimes he claimed to be. And sometimes he claimed nothing. Most of the time, he spoke and behaved in a way that clearly showed he was not. I knew right then that I could trust neither his behavior, nor what he said about himself.

I am nor a writer. I never intended to write this book. One day, when I sat in front of the computer; I simply began to write down the questions that were coming up in my mind. As I finished each question, the answer naturally emerged. Another question would follow. And to it, another answer. This is how each chapter got written. As I completed the chapters, 1 could see that the answers were clearly based on conversations and experiences I had had with Bharat They were not literal transcriptions of raped conversations. But they were a direct result of the ideas Bharat had communicated directly to me, or implied in some way.

Bharat is no teacher. He rarely explains — himself or anything else. Whatever is to be found is to be found by you No one else, the answers in this book are not answers. They are devices. Enjoy them. Let them in. And then throw them away. Words are for Tools. Life proceeds in silence.

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!

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.
