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.


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.

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.

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.
