Pulsation of Godhood: Journey From the Known to the Unknown
As a young physician, surgeon and professor of medicine in Bombay, India, Dr. R.S. Mishra met the mighty master, Baba Bhagavandas Bodhisattva, who was destined to become his Sadguru, his final teacher and guide.
In this remarkable collection of engaging stories and enlightened teachings of the magnetic Baba Bhagavandas, we find recorded the inner quest of Dr.Ramamurti S. Mishra, later known by his sannyasa name Shri Brahmananda Sarasvati, as he confronts the burning questions of his life.
This compelling narrative will touch the heart and soul of the devotee. A story of uncompromising dedication, absolute love and grace, it will guide us on the journey to experience higher planes of intuition and initiation, to come into direct contact with our own unknown force, the pure light of spirit in human consciousness.
"It is not the description of the guru or what the guru talks that is important. What is important is how much you are coming into contact with your own unmanifest force, how much you feel contact between the known and unknown. The ruling force of your life is unmanifest. If you neglect that, you will not be happy."
"This inner force is called the guru. It is a guiding light. You do not need to believe in it. That I want to tell you first. You do not need to believe in that guiding light. It is in you, and like a mirror this guiding light reflects everything back."
-- Shri Brahmananda Sarasvati
