BOOK REVIEWS


Praise for SHAFTS OF LIGHT
 
“The book [Shafts of Light] is a wonderful compilation, which can serve as a manual for spiritual life.”
—SWAMI SMARANANANDA, General Secretary of the Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission
 
“Shafts of Light may very well become a spiritual classic. Its teachings constitute an intensive course in practical Vedanta. If we could fully follow them, they would surely lead us to the goal.”
—Vedanta Kesari

Praise for A DISCIPLE'S JOURNAL
"This new book by Sister Gargi is the ideal companion to her notable biography of Swami Ashokananda. Its heartfelt firsthand accounts pass the impact he had on her on to the lives of her readers. Sister Gargi is to be thanked for another important entry in the archives of world spirituality."
—HUSTON SMITH, internationally renowned author of The World's Religions and Why Religion Matters
 
"This book takes the reader on a powerful journey of self-discovery as Sister Gargi relates her own revealing story as Swami Ashokananda's disciple."
Leading Edge Review
 
A Disciple’s Journal is Gargi’s memoir of the time spent in the company of her beloved teacher, Swami Ashokananda, between 1950 and 1970 . . . Sister Gargi uses journal entries to tell the inspiring story of her life-changing relationship with a great teacher. The humor and wisdom of Ashokananda is evident . . . from Gargi’s journal. Those who are interested in reading more of this engaging story of East meets West will not be disappointed.”
