Overview

A free collection of nondual spiritual poetry written from the Heart by Nirmala, who is a spiritual teacher in the Advaita tradition. This spiritual poetry attempts to capture the undying presence of love in all of its forms. Let your soul be deeply touched by the Rumi-like words of a lover drunk with a passion for the truth.

Sample poem:

I have fallen in love with truth
I only want to be with her
I can not stand to be apart
I would gladly go to the ends of the earth
or I would never again move from this spot
just to be sure to inhale her fragrant perfume
with my dying breath

I have fallen in love with truth
her every wish my command
I simply must obey
for she has captured my soul
and taken complete control
of even my innermost thoughts
freeing me to find repose
in her unadorned splendor

I have fallen in love with truth
with exquisite tenderness she shows me
the perfection in my every flaw
no need for pretense
for she knows everything about me
and yet takes me in her arms
with complete abandon
until only she remains

About the Author

Who are you really? Are you your body. mind and personality? Or are you the spacious awareness in which they appear? Questions like these point us to the infinite Presence that is the true source of peace, happiness and fulfillment. They are an opportunity to discover that the peace and happiness you have been seeking is already present, here and now. About Nirmala: After a lifetime of spiritual seeking, Nirmala met his teacher, Neelam. She convinced Nirmala that seeking wasn’t necessary since everything is already here within us; and after experiencing a profound spiritual awakening in India, he began offering satsangs (gatherings for inquiring into the truth) and individual spiritual mentoring with Neelam’s blessing. Nirmala offers a unique vision and a gentle, compassionate approach, which adds to the rich tradition of inquiry into the truth of Being. He is also the author of several books including Nothing Personal: Seeing Beyond the Illusion of a Separate Self. He has been offering satsang throughout the United States and Canada since 1998. Nirmala lives in Sedona, Arizona with his wife, Gina Lake.

Both meditative and contemplative, this work inspires readers to quiet their minds. Once they do this, the truth, often elusive, will reveal itself in many wonderful ways and when it's least expected. I'm a believer!!!
