Who are Your Lead Teachers?
Swamiji felt love he had never felt before in his 44 years when he first saw Sai Maa approaching him in a town in the Berkshires of Massachusetts over 20 years ago. This was a true turning point for a psychologist, management consultant, and father who had suffered loss on many levels over the previous two years. Since that time Swamiji has flourished as a Bhakta, someone who progresses in the spiritual path through Bhakti or devotion, in this case as a disciple of his beloved guru, Sai Maa.
His love of writing has led to five books, beginning with his first, In the Path of Light with Maa, all of which have been published in English and French, with his first book also translated into Japanese. You can learn more about Swamiji, read his articles and listen to his recordings, by visiting his website at www.inthepathoflight.com and his blog at www.insidetipsblog.com.
