Being Vegetarian
Price: $7.00

Being Vegetarian is not a cookbook; it's about why and how to be vegetarian or vegan in a mainly meat-eating world. Written in a lively and engaging style, it looks at two main issues. One is the 'why' of being vegetarian; on the positive side the ethical, social, environmental, health and spiritual reasons for being vegetarian, and on the negative side the proven damage caused by animal-based food production to human health and our planet, as well as the suffering and death inflicted on vast numbers of living creatures every day. The other is the 'how' of being vegetarian; myths and helpful facts about a vegetarian diet, eating healthily, understanding 'hidden' non-vegetarian ingredients in foods, travelling as a vegetarian, and dealing with lack of understanding or even opposition from family, friends, school, or the workplace. The book is packed with useful and up-to-date facts and figures, with links to the scientific research on which the book is based for those who want to delve more deeply. It offers many clear and convincing answers to the often-heard question: 'why are you vegetarian?'
Empower Women
Price: $6.00

Empower Women is a response to a grave situation developing in Indian society today: the increasing practice of sex-selection by killing female infants in the womb. The book takes a look at the cultural norms that underpin a deep-rooted tradition of son-preference, draws our attention to the scale of the crisis, and highlights the far-reaching effects of having a society where men outnumber women at an ever increasing rate. The book calls out to our conscience to consider the profound consequences of our actions.
Equilibrium of Love
Price: $30.00

EQUILIBRIUM OF LOVE is a coffee-table size picture book which tells the story of the Dera. How does the Dera function? How does it manage to provide food, shelter, and basic infrastructure for a fluctuating population of hundreds of thousands of people? The book clearly illustrates that the foundation of the Dera is built on love and service.

While going through the book you will learn just how self-sufficient the Dera is and how all the needs of the permanent residents and the large crowds of visitors are met. The photographs give the reader a real behind-the-scenes look at all the activities of the Dera. The book is intended to be both informative and inspirational. One realizes that without the love and guidance of the Master, and the hard work, love, and dedication of the sevadars, a place like the Dera could not exist.

The Flower Called Rose
Price: $30.00

Everyone who appreciates the beauty of flowers will enjoy this unusual book.
