Book Description
About the Author

Swami Rajarshi Muni was born on 11th February, 1931, in Porbandar, in western Gujarat, in the princely lineage of the Jadeja rules of Kutch. He received sannyas initiation in February 1971 and thereafter devoted himself almost exclusively to secluded Yoga sadhana of the khechari mudra expounded and practiced in the modern spiritual tradition of Lord Lakulish, twenty-eight incarnation of Lord Shiv, in which he is the present spiritual head. In 1993, in response to a spiritual calling, he temporarily interrupted his self-imposed seclusion undertake a worldwide campaign to spread the knowledge of Yoga and the moral, cultural spiritual values of the Sanatan (eternal) Indian heritage. He resumed secluded sadhana in 2007 to complete his Yoga and establish the authenticity of the principle of the indestructible Divine Body, on which he has written with profound clarity and authority based on personal practice experience. He is an advanced yogi, a realized Master in the classic mould of Indian adepts, knower of the kundalini and master of the khechari mudra. The extraordinary heights he attained in his Yoga practice establish him firmly as the latest addition to the lineage of perfected masters which has long embellished the Indian spiritual tradition.

Publisher’s Note

Swami Rajarshi Muni's long spiritual ministry has included not only his extraordinary personal sadhana that has raised him to the highest pinnacles of yoga practice but also a lifetime of teaching of all aspects of yoga and the moral and ethical values and practices of the Sanatan dharma to his disciples and the world at large through a vast body of printed literature and discourses.

This vastly illuminating book is a compilation of his chief discourses on dan dharma or the practice of charity. They delineate, with examples from the Scriptures, the types of dan, and its correct practice and benefits. Readers will find comprehensive guidance from this book on the importance and practice of dan dharma which Indian Scriptures have indicated as being the only surviving foundation of dharma in the kali yuga. Hopefully, it will inspire and motivate them into its correct practice for their own spiritual benefit.
