Description
About the Book

This delightful little book is a collection of five hilarious stories featuring the Divine Sage Narad and an unlikely cast of support personages which include the Creator Lord Brahma, the Maintainer Lord Vishnu, Yamaraja, the lord of Death, his assistant, Chitragupta, and a clever earthly Brahmin who holds his own well enough to eventually take himself and his wife, and various •sinners" besides, all the way up to Vaikunttha, Lord Vishnu's Supreme Abode.

The stories are deftly knit around the question as to why Siddhas do not visit the earth any more. The cause is eventually revealed to lie in the chaos and disorder that arises in the governance of the cosmos from Narad's propensity of going about to find fault with it and taking his complaints to his highest authorities. The narrative is garbed in the institutions, conventions, practices, attitudes and language of the Indian bureaucracy, making for an irresistible concoction of pure mirth. With all that the book is not without its serious side in that, as the stories play out, they also articulate certain important principles of India's Sanatan Dharma, such as karma, destiny, rebirth, etc. All in all, this is a book not to be missed and readers who do take it up for a read will find their time well spent

About the Book

Swami Rajarshi Muni was born on 11th February 1931 in Porbandar, in western Gujarat, in the princely lineage of the Jadeja rulers 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 modem spiritual tradition of Lord Lakulish, twenty-eighth 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 to undertake a worldwide campaign to spread the knowledge of Yoga and the moral, cultural and spiritual values of the Sanatan (eternal) Indian heritage. He resumed secluded sadhana in 2007 to complete his Yoga and establish the authentic City of the principle of the indestructible Divine Body, on which he has shed profound light from a position of eminent qualification based on personal practice and 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 has attained in his Yoga practice establish him firmly as the latest addition to the lineage of siddha (adepts) which has long embellished the Indian spiritual tradition.
