Back of the Book

Why do I need a guru? Why shoul I meditate? What is the use of mantras? Why does the breath matter in spiri practice? What is the significance of sexuality on the spiritual path? What do I do with the restless mind?

Such questions, vital to the understanding of the self and the world, are examined in Guru: Ten Doors to Ancient Wisdom.

Using the metaphor of doors, the reader is invited to enter different 'chambers', each one presenting the opportunity to explore and experience the spiritual truths contained therein. The reader also learns how these spiritual concepts are, finally, only tools to take the practitioner to ultimate goal: union with the Divine.

Whether you want to begin your spiritual practice or simply understand the core concepts of Indian spirituality, this illuminating work by renowned playwright and spiritual guide, H. S. Shivaprakash, is sure to light up your path.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
