"Krishna's Counsel is the second in a three-part saga which began with Whip of The WildGod, a drama classic played out in ancient India. It is the story of Pia, a modern young woman seeking her 'dharma' in her beloved India and later inManhattan. Pia's Uncle Hari tells her much about her homeland's rich heritage and she discovers much on her own--so that a living continuity is established between ancient and modern, revealing a timeless yet changing world. Like Whip of the Wild God, this second novel is edge-of-your-seat thrilling, its colorful characters brilliantly drawn, and one is taken on a journey of life lived to its fullest. Mira Prabhu is a great writer, not just very good, and this is another classic."

"Krishna'sCounsel is an extraordinary saga that begins with the coming-of-age of Pia in60's southern India. Pia's development is driven by a radical intelligence,audacity and a hunger to grasp the meaning of tragic events that splinter her early life; her yearning grows for what sages claim is the goal of our existence: an intensely alive cosmic connection. In Manhattan, Pia is driven by painful circumstances into the treacherous embrace of narcotics. Breaking free of these fetters, Pia returns to India to resume her quest for peace; instead a demon materializes in the form of a charismatic killer--and her sole weapon against him is the sword of her spiritual understanding! This novel is more than just a rollicking good read with polished prose and sharp insights into the human psyche. It is a scintillating delight for those appreciative of the writer's art, indeed a spiritual poem of a high order. Mira Prabhu has honed the scribe's craft and her work is bestrewn with spiritual gems--so if there is one novel you read this year, make it Krishna's Counsel!"

"This is a magnificent novel that can be read on many different levels. Through the lens of Pia Shenoy, we are thrust aboard a journey that not only deals with the struggles of earthly existence but which is also rich in supernatural insights.What is one's ultimate purpose? Is the suffering and injustice we see in our world a reason to turn bitter, or is it motivation to help others loosen the chains of their existence as we un-tie our own? Mira Prabhu spins a magnificent tapestry of characters and settings that challenge a reader to really absorb not just a great story, but the timeless teachings of Eastern Philosophy.Krishna's Counsel is brimful of nourishing substance in an age when we need it most--there are no empty calories here!"
~Michael Safran, Contemporary Artist/Natural Interpreter
"Krishna's Counsel is lyrical, exciting,spiritually rich and eminently readable and Mira Prabhu is a born Tusi Tala, a teller of tales--which is what the natives of the Pacific Islands called RobertLouis Stevenson! Congratulations on creating yet another terrific enlightenment saga, Mira!"
