Once a Householder always a Jivan Mukta.

The divine descent happened at Annakara near Guruvayur on the 14th August, 1929, into an aristocratic, affluent and a respected family. She` received her education at the St. Joseph is European Girls High School and the Holy Cross College at Tiruchi. Her communion with the Divine began from an early age. She had rare spiritual experiences and visions from the tender age of seven years.

At the age of eighteen, She was married to Shri Paliath Divakaran Achan, eldest son of the Yuvaraja of the Cochin Royal family. While living as an ideal grahasta — a loving, selfless mother and a devoted wife — She led a we of great austerity guided by the ideal that a householder was to be a sanvas in at, She performed intense spiritual sadhana, involving the severest tap as and continuous communion with the Divine, demonstrating to the world that one could live of a householder and yet be a Jivan Mukta, a liberated soul to tall established in the Divine. She received a Divine Command to take Sanyasa and took Vidwat Sanyasa in 1975 receiving the name of Sri Sathguru Swami Gnanananda Sarasvathi.

Sri Sathguru has been tirelessly propagating the path of Saranagati, as taught in the Srimad BhagwadGita as being the most appropriate for the present age. Sri Sathguru established the Sri Gnana Advaitha Peetam in September: 1975. Renovation of old, dilapidated places of worship, reviving ancient traditions, spreading the special message of total detachment and self surrender to desiring and deserving souls — all are Sri .sathguru’s efforts to put humankind onto the path of self realisation.

The remaining Hindi works of Sri Hit Harivans and the Mystique of Aryan Identity and Mircea Eliade’s History of religious.

Introduction

Dr. Charles S.J. White ’s article "Mother Guru: Jnanananda of Madras" in Unspoken Worlds edited by Nancy Auer Falk and Rita M. Gross has been for many years the main source of information about Sri Sathguru for researchers, scholars and sadhakas in the western world.

Dr. White first had darshan of Sri Sathguru in 1976 and subsequently had darshan and a few interviews in 78-79. Using that material he wrote the article in Unspoken Worlds, which was published in 1980 by Harper and Row. His dedication, love of truth and philosophy made it easy for Sri Sathguru who is normally reclusive, to explain to him Her life and teachings.

In 1998, when Sri Sathguru resumed giving Darshan after a long period of seclusion, Dr. White had two dialogues with Sri Sathguru to gather sufficient material to bring his article up to date for the new edition being brought out by Wadsworth/Thomson Learning. The dialogues have been edited by him and are now being brought out in their entirety. They are a companion to his article and should be read along with it. Sri Sathguru speaks of Her beliefs, the many deities in Hinduism, Her Ishta Daivam, samadhi, early experiences and life after death.

It is hoped that this little volume will bring as much pleasure and enlightenment to the readers as it did to Dr. White and the devotees who worked on it.

Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
