Some remain in seclusion, while others become spiritual teachers who support the spiritual transformation of humanity.
But to meet a Gnani Purush (embodiment of Self knowledge), and to access their spiritual power to achieve spiritual enlightenment, is extremely rare.
One such Gnani Purush of recent time is Dada Bhagwan. The book “Autobiography Of Gnani Purush A.M.Patel”, compiled from transcribed satsangs, describes his own process of instant enlightenment in his own words.
Before achieving sudden enlightenment, Dadashri had led a spiritual life of tremendous spiritual awareness. Nonetheless, his spiritual awakening and his ability to bestow Self realization upon others, is remarkable and fascinating.
In the context of his own spiritual biography, Dadashri reveals the science of Self realization, describing how one can attain knowledge of Self and, thereafter, ultimate liberation, or moksha.
Whether on a spiritual quest to discover what is spiritual enlightenment, or to learn about great spiritual people of recent history, this book is an invaluable resource. Among the many spiritual books available today, “Autobiography Of Gnani Purush A.M.Patel” is certain to inspire any spiritual seeker who reads it.
Queen of the Oddballs forms a chronology of Hillary Carlip's habitual straying from roads more traveled -- from a wisecracking third-grader suspended from school for smoking (while imitating Holly Golightly) to a headline-making teen activist, juggler and fire eater, friend (NOT "fan") of Carly Simon and Carole King, grand prize-winning Gong Show contestant, cult rock star, and seeker of spiritual and romantic truths that definitely defy expectations.
Illustrated with ephemera -- from diary entries and photographs to a handwritten letter from Carly Simon -- Queen of the Oddballs presents a virtual time capsule of pop culture's last four decades and celebrates a creative life lived to the hilt.
