Anyone who is interested in the teachings of Brahmananda Saraswati should have this book. Every passage lands in the consciousness like holy scripture. Paul mason has done a wonderful job in translating these gems from the Master.

Great book to read chapter by chapter each day for the rest of your life. Gives a great insight into what Swami Brahmananda
thought and what was important in his view.

108 Discourses of Guru Dev by Paul Mason is, in my opinion, the most important and BEST spiritual book written in the last 100 years. Swami Brahmananda Saraswati was affectionately known as Guru Dev.

Guru Dev was the Shankaracharya of Jyotir Math, the northernmost of the 4 seats of the Shankaracharyas established by Shankara between 1500 and 2000 years ago. This northernmost seat was vacant for many years until Guru Dev, who had been leading the life of a solitary saint living in the forest and mountains, finally agreed to take the seat.

These little 'sermons' (none is longer than 4 pages) are exceedingly clear, uplifting, and to the point. This volume has the discourses in the original Hindi and also in English (thank God, as my Hindi is not what is used to be). Of all the modern spiritual books that I have read, this one cuts through the junk like a sword and reveals the diamond truth that is at the core of the Vedic teachings. Most of the important topics are mentioned, such as Enlightenment (moksha), meditation, karma, the caste system, possessions, obstacles on the Path, Maya, dharma, and many, many others.

In my opinion, you must buy this book.

Paul Mason's trilogy of books on Swami Brahmananda Saraswati are truly outstanding. An invaluable resource for the scholar and the seeker alike.
