Book Description

Sacred Stories from many Cultures
Sweetened Condensed Milk is a modern retelling of ancient wisdom in old stories. From African tales about spirit and reincarnation, to Zen stories about acceptance, Sufi stories about Beauty, and Hindu folktales about monkeys who save the world through discovering their own innate divinity, this book seeks to inspire through the vehicle of Myth. It reflects the particular insight of a former life-long monk who has grown pragmatic and realistic in his approach to grief and sustained joy. Myth and metaphor have a way of revealing the inexplicable, hopefully free of dogma… and whatever truths you may uncover are yours and not the storytellers.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true Yogi September 11, 2009
Shyam Dodge (Radha Shyam) has been the most important spiritual influence of my adult life. I am very happy that he has published this book. I'm sure he will reach into the heart of anyone that reads this book in the same way he touched my heart. It is a very accessible text with the power of simple, practical, and universal truth. He effortlessly conveys the depth of a full spiritual life experience through these pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uplifting June 20, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition
I was thoroughly entertained and enlightened, all in a flash. the proverbial "nectar" which flows from the writers mind, to his lips, to his pen, to his cheap paper, to the internet, penetrates my soul and wit. I simply can express only one thought upon finishing the beautifully titled book "sweetened condensed milk" this.. when is his next work coming out?
