Format: Paperback
In the fall of 1994 I had the great priveledge of spending time with H.W.L. Poonjaji in Lucknow, India. It was a powerful, life-altering encounter. "The Truth Is," has allowed me to once again delve into the life and teachings of this great sage. This book includes a brief history about Papaji and provides a simple introduction to the path of "Self-inquiry." The love contained in this book, however, really begins to shine when it takes the reader into actual conversations between Papaji and the seekers and students who came to him for spiritual guidance. His answers, at times, turn into poetry of the most profound kind. Elsewhere he will venture off into stories that on one hand teach about love and on the other shake and stir our souls. Throughout the book, Poonjaji approaches the central theme of his teachings, that of knowing the Self, from many different angles. This volume does a beautiful job of compiling these many excerpts of conversation into logical chapters enabling the reader to search for answers to their own questions for themselves. The topics range from "surrender" and "death" to finding the "Satguru" and the "Truth" that already exists in each one of us. For readers who have spent time with Papaji, this is a wonderful reminder of his loving presence. For those who never met him in person, "The Truth Is" gives us a chance to begin to know him in spirit, for as Poonjaji himself taught, his true identity, the Self, can never die.

This book is an indication of, but not the truth of Papaji, the immense clarity he embodied shines through the pages, but he felt that to be live and in the moment is where truth is. The truth is that we are already free, no-one can sell us anything we need, or take anything we are, we are already complete. It must have been amazing to meet this man, he is like a tiger, ferocious in truth, but also big and cuddly, and everything in between and beyond. The message of these satsang excerpts will pick you up, throw you about, and play havoc with you. Great stuff!

Format: Paperback
This book is too deep for those who are new-comers to world of "Self", "Truth", "Consciousness". BUT, its the book you really want to read if you are familiar with above concepts and (Advaita) Vedanta. This book is written in prose intercepted with Q&A format. Truly, a wonderful and eye-opening book. You will love what the Truth Is.

Format: Paperback
This book is not for everybody. If you want 'tips' and 'techniques' to find bliss, then do not even venture anywhere near this book. But if you want to 'get it' NOW, then you will find this book illuminating and exhilirating.

Poonja goes straight to the issue - Your liberation is NOW and your mind is in your way of realising that. You can never 'think' or 'act' in order to realise your true self. He points out as clearly as the limitations of words allow anybody to - The reason for all our suffering is listening to our mind. By 'observing' and 'being aware' the false falls away and the truth remains. The title 'Truth Is' says it all - 'Truth is What IS'. Our conditioning and thought patterns lead us to believe that we have to 'do' something, 'practice' something and enlightenment will be achieved some day in the future. That is an illusion. The path and the goal are right here and right now. You need to stop attaching importance to your thoughts, feeling and emotions and just observe the play of all these in your life. Poonja conveys all this and many other insights beautifully. He leaves one no crutches to hang on and removes all usual avenues of escapes that the mind uses.

Of course, the message he conveys is not new. What is different is that he conveys the message from his very own real experience and it does not come from his intelluct but from his very being. In that, he stands right up there with Ramana Maharshi, J Krishnamurhi and Eckhart Tolle.

Happy reading.

-Suresh

Papaji has a way of guiding you to your Self in a very loving and compassionate way. These pages are filled with wise pointings, beautiful analogies, and timeless truths to get you to see and be as you have always been.

These pointers to Self are beautiful and powerful.

This book speaks and emanates from the heart of advaita and non duality. It is piercing in its clarity. I highly recommend it.
