Celebrating 25 years under Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji’s Leadership
A gorgeous coffee table biography of Pujya Swamiji has been published entitled By God’s Grace. Upon its release, this book held the NUMBER ONE position as a best-seller in Amazon.com’s Hinduism section, out of a total of over 17,000 books!
It is a nearly 300 page coffee table book filled with exquisite photos of Ganga, the Himalayas, and all of the saints and world leaders with whom Pujya Swamiji has spent the first 60 years of His life. However, it is more than just a beautiful beautiful book. It also tells the inspiring, uplifting and transformative stories of Pujya Swamiji’s whole life — from meeting His Guru at the tender age of eight, to His youth filled with intense sadhana in the Himalayan forests and jungles, including standing on one leg for 11 hours a day.
By God’s Grace then goes on to beautifully describe Pujya Swamiji’s arrival into Rishikesh and choice to stay there, followed by the history of His life at Parmarth Niketan, first as a young student and then as head of one of India’s largest spiritual institutions. You will read about His travels around the world, touching and teaching people of all religions, all cultures and all walks of life. The book further details Pujya Swamiji’s unparalleled projects and achievements including the eleven volume Encyclopedia of Hinduism, the construction of three ashrams in the sacred land of Lake Mansarovar and Mt. Kailash in Tibet, widespread tsunami relief work and now an unprecedented project to clean, preserve and protect the 2500 kilometer divine Ganga.
Lastly, even though for those blessed to know Him, we all understand that His life is His message, the book also includes special “teaching” sections in between the chronological chapters. Each special teaching spread takes one of Pujya Swamiji’s most fundamental teachings and shares it, in His own words, through His own voice, on gorgeously illustrated pages.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama has written the foreword and shares His own thoughts and experiences with Pujya Swamiji.
This book is perfect for personal reading and for gracing the top of your coffee table, and it is also the perfect gift for any friend or loved one who, whether they know Pujya Swamiji personally or not, is looking for a glimpse into the life of one of history’s truest, wisest, deepest, funniest and most down-to-earth spiritual leaders.
Laugh, cry, look at yourself and your life in a brand new way.
