Moment with a Master Meetings with Dada J.P. Vaswani
Moment with a Master Meetings with Dada J.P. Vaswani
Description
Back of the Book

A 27-year-old spiritual seeker and freelance writer from the United States traveled to India to spend some time with her family in Pune. Her life seemed fraught with difficulties in those days-her father was battling terminal illness and she was afraid of losing him; one of her closest friendships and recently been severed; she was confused about her future career plans; and she felt that she had come up against an interminable writer's block. An unexpected opportunity to conduct a series of one-on-one interviews with one of contemporary India's better-known spiritual teachers and humanitarians, Dada J.P. Vaswani, changed it all. Dada's answers were the balm that soothed and provided her with the strength essential to confront the challenges of life.

Moments with a Master chronicles the magical interactions between this young seeker and the spiritual master we call Dada. By weaving Dada's memorable and insightful commentaries and parables on a variety of spiritual and mundane topics, together with his life experience as well as those of the author, this part-memoir, part-biography and part-pilgrimage journal illuminates one of humanity's modern day mystics.

Sandhya Nankani lives and works in the United States. Editor of the multi-disciplinary anthology, Breaking the Silence: Domestic Violence in the South Asian Literature and Art Archive (thesala.com), Womenswire.org, a UNICEF-funded publication, Hinduism Today, and MSBBC.com.

Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
