Cutting Chai with Bhawana Somaaya - Day 477

Book as a messenger

Sometimes you search a book you want to read and sometimes a book searches you because universe wants you to benefit from the message hidden in the pages. The latter happened to me when I found an abandoned book at my doctor’s clinic waiting for my turn and like a good reader brought the book home.

The prayers in Whispers from Eternity serve to bring God closer to us, by describing the liberating feelings that arise from actual communion with him. The Lord is here portrayed in His immanent aspect: the Cosmic Mother – a grand conception of the Infinite and Invisible become, in Nature, finite and visible. Followers of all religions may drink from this fountain of universal prayers.

Paramahansa Yogananda’s writings give profound answers to questions of the modern scientific mind, seeking God intelligently. The book offers a great variety of invocations, enabling the truth seeker to choose daily the thought most helpful to his particular need.

Says author Amelita Galli-Curci in the Foreword “Pass not by, with hurried intellectual reading, the precious mines of truth hidden in the soil of words in this sacred book. Instead, dig deep in the mines with the pickax of attentive, reverent and meditative study; and finally find the priceless gem of self-realization.”
