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
