Overview

Spiritual Teachings of the Avatar speaks to anyone concerned with the sustainability of Mother Earth, the role of elders in our society, the seemingly unconsciousness of science and corporations, and the subtleties of unseen realities, resulting in spiritual growth, a deeper relationship with nature, and a better world for all. An avatar is a manifestation of the Supreme Being—usually in human form—that descends from the transcendental realm to Earth to heal the planet and restore peace and harmony by eliminating the harmful souls that prey on Mother Earth. In Spiritual Teachings of the Avatar, Vedic expert and teacher Jeffrey Armstrong explains the ancient Indian wisdoms embodied in the word “avatar,” and that behind the notion of avatar is a view that sees the sacredness of all life and the soul of all beings as eternal—meant for freedom and made of divine essence.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Jeffrey Armstrong has shown how the new avatar awareness and the ancient and eternal avatar consciousness can be united for individual and global transformation. He has done so with poetry, humor, intelligence, wit, and grace. A book that will open the doorways to many higher dimensions, new hidden horizons, new worlds of delight, and new ways of vision.”
—David Frawley, director, American Institute of Vedic Studies

“I truly enjoyed the unfolding of our ancient Hindu/Vedic culture and philosophy finding a fresh voice. Armstrong gallops through pretty much every social, political, scientific, and religious issue currently engaging and outraging the human race, from the Transcendental to the dirt real. I so admire what has been has accomplished here.”
Paramacharya Palaniswami, Editor-in-Chief HinduismToday

“Armstrong is a Western master of Eastern wisdom who has masterfully written The SpiritualTeachings of the Avatar in a voice that resonates deeply with the soul. He transports us to the loving embrace of Mother Earth’s arms as she reminds us to live on this Earth lovingly and consciously for the good of all. I love this book!”
—Michelle DeAngelis, corporate consultant and author of Geta Life That Doesn’t Suck

“The concept of imagining that you are not your thoughts, thus you are not even your ‘imagination’, sets the premise for an exploration of the deepest spiritual questions. Rooted in an awareness of the true nature of consciousness, Jeffrey awakens our intuition to what it has forgotten. Many Namaste’s”
Terry McBride, founder of YYoga

    Inspirational & Invaluable!

    This compilation of Spiritual Teachings is not only highly inspirational, but it is an invaluable guide for yoga teachers everywhere! Teachers who aspire to share the true essence of yogic philosophy and Sanskrit will cherish it... And spiritual seekers will surely revel in Jeffrey's poetic, yet modern way of communicating what we all need to hear and absorb.

    Universal knowledge and inspired vision

    This is the book I've been seeking for the longest time because it gives the conversation around global healing a boost from deep, time tested wisdom. It's wisdom drawn from the deeply intelligent culture of ancient India that's never been presented to me before so vividly. All through university when I was learning about the political and psycho-social aspects of how the world operates, I was unsettled by the lack of concern for strengthening of the individual in this world. I was ill at ease about the way I was being trained to be a 'leader' of a corporatist paradigm my soul did not resonate with. Discovering the Vedic knowledge of India through Jeffrrey's book though has given me a framework for understanding the subtle and sophisticated Indigenous worldview that makes sense to me as the basis for intelligently living on the planet. The book's emphasis on the importance of a equally balanced male and female Divine is powerful because it's helped me to re-consider my own dynamics in relationship and to consider more broadly how our world is in desparate need of respect for the female 'Shakti' energy in all realms from the family, to business, politics and activism. I've found in this book a deeply considered spiritual framework for real social change. This book truely inspires.
