Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Life is easier when you laugh...Swami Beyondananda, who never metaphysical question he didn't like, says life is Duck Soup-fun, easy, a piece of cake-when you are the laughingstock.

So get up off your assets and let Swami show you how to release your jestive blockages and turn any stew you're in into Duck Soup.

You're guaranteed to get struck by enlightening, and you'll see that: Fun is FUNdamental; A laugh track has been provided; The reason you're in the material world is to get more material; Non-judgment day is at hand; You are unique, just like everyone else; Whatever it is, peace on it!

About the Author

Swami Beyondananda is the brain child and alter ego of writer Steve Bhaerman, whose workshop "The Alchemy of Humor" is nationally known. Swami has been called a cross between Ram Dass and Haagen Dasz, a combination of Groucho and Gandhi. His nationwide syndicated monthly column delights millions and has been described as "comedy disguised as wisdom" and "wisdom disguised as comedy."

Format: Paperback
With just the right humorous spice and some very ducky spiritual stock, Swami Beyondananda (aka Steve Bhaerman) mixes up a batch of healing stories that build strong funny bones and remind us to increase the laugh-force on the planet. Each chapter is as funny as it is wise, as you can intuit from the Swami's advice that we can alter our own reality (and the reality of those around us) by Making Fools of ourselves, remembering to Tell-A-Vision, being Esteem-Generators, and Committing Random Acts of Comedy and Beautiful Nonsense. Have fun learning how to drive your own Karma... while making sure you don't run over anyone else's Dogma!

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By John R. Wilson on November 17, 2006
Format: Paperback
I read this book a while back, but today I was reminded of its significance. When the drive-thru at my favorite fast-food restaurant was swamped with cars, when a large SUV drove the wrong way through the narrow driveway and when I ended up behind a boat festooned with a grass skirt, I remembered Steve's counsel that our purpose for being in this life is to gather comedy "material." My friend and I drove away laughing so hard we made strange snorting noises, could hardly catch our breath, and had to peek through our eyelashes to even see where we were going. If you do not think life is all that funny, then I recommend this book. Perhaps your "jestive system" is clogged and in need of treatment. You can find the needed remedy in "Duck Soup for the Soul."
