Hi Brian, 

 

First of all, so wonderful to see you back here again! 
 I am honored and happy to see your note. I hope I won’t disappoint my fellow Dao bums with what I’ve written.

 

Your support means a lot to me. 
 

Best,

 

Dwai

Please leave a comment on amazon if you like the book :) 

 

All Lahiris come from the same common ancestor - Lokenath Sharma of Kanyakubja. But that was almost 2000 years back...

 

That said, I’m not from the same branch as Lahiri Mahashay :) 

You are welcome I am reading it a little at a time, and that is a good sign because when I read something like this it is with an attitude of savoring a fine dish not wanting the meal to end too soon.

 

Very much enjoying the first few chapters and how you are capturing village life and the attitudes and sentiments of the people of India, this very much matches with the Swami's I have learned from as well as the householders I have known,  this book may very well become something more than you ever intended.

 

Once I have read it all I will be certain to put up a 5 star review on Amazon as that is the direction this is heading in thus far.

 

Thank you so much for your time and effort and one of the more enjoyable books I have had the privilege to read in recent years.

Thought you might enjoy this — 

 

I’m in LA currently, and had the good fortune of meditating in the Lake Shrine temple yesterday. It is a powerful place and perhaps one of the most powerful places I’ve visited in the US. 

Sitting there in the temple hall, I was pulled into a deep stillness along with expansive awareness. Little by little I merged with the temple and all the people there. And then after a while as I came out of the stillness I saw a gigantic form of Lahiri mahashay standing in the hall.

 

Im certainly planning to visit again When I visit LA again :)

 I used to spend every week here when I lived in L.A. 

 

Go to Santa Monica and 5th street to Thunderbolt Spiritual Books while you can. If you let me know in advance I can introduce you to some individuals of interest in martial, magical, and other related disciplines there.

Still reading a little at a time then digesting what has been read. The book keeps getting better and better and am reading slowly because I want the adventure to continue. This book is something very special.

I love it. The way you've interleaved some sound educations with a uniquely gripping tale. I read part one aloud to my mum this weekend, and she's immediately bonkers for it, sending compliments for your elegantly vivid style. After digesting a bit more I'll surely post in the product reviews. Kudos!

Can I purchase the paperback from your site directly?

I may have just missed it when perusing.

 

(Any more, I prefer to avoid amazon completely.)
