This colourfully illustrated picture book for young children graphically tells the story of the soul's separation from its divine source at the time of the creation.

The book illustrates how we are all children of the same Father and that we should love one another and all of God's creation. It ends by explaining how God sends "his own Great Power, mercy and Love" into the world in the form of a Master to awaken us to our true home and guide us back into "the Ocean of Light", where the drops merge back and live in "happiness, peace and bliss...forever and ever".

Mat Koi Bharm Bhule Sansaar
Price: $6.00

This book presents a brief treatment of how we misunderstand the Master and the path by indulging in superstition and a lack of clear thinking.  In the process, we distance ourselves from the Truth that the Master teaches, and mistake the physical master for the inner Master – the Shabd.  We often rely on outward devotion, but the path of the masters is an individual mystical path, based on personal inner experience, not on our concepts. The author urges us to examine our approach to the path and use our common sense in taking practical steps to living in reality rather than illusion. She illustrates her points with quotations from various sources.
