An inspiring collection of talks by one of Amma's foremost disciples and most accessible spiritual teachers, Swami Paramatmananda Puri. The talks in this volume include: the importance of Patience and Discipline, Bliss and the Meaning and Nature of Advaita, the Power of Persistence, and the Unreality of the World. This volume also includes a section devoted to frequently asked questions by spiritual seekers.These spiritual talks, or satsangs as they are called in Sanskrit, are an unusual and entertaining combination of stories, humor, and scriptural references. They also contain many of Swami's own personal spiritual experiences with Amma.Originally available only on tape, his talks have now been transcribed, preserving his unique speaking style as much as possible.Swami Paramatmananda Puri is a senior disciple of the great woman saint of Kerala, India, Amma. He came to settle in her ashram in 1980 after having spent 12 years in Ramana Maharshi's ashram in Tiruvannamalai. Born in America and familiar with the analytical Western mind, yet having fully lived and imbibed Eastern spiritual truths, he is able to present those truths in a manner which is readily understood by everyone. He now lives at Amma's ashram in India.
