  • IN QUEST OF GOD:

    The theme of Swami Ramdas’ first book, IN QUEST OF GOD, is the dawn of his new life and its unfoldment during the first year of the great change that came over him. He was wandering from place to place all over India in a state of complete surrender to God. He had no thought of the body; he had no thought of food; he did not know where to rest. His one thought only was God. His tongue was continuously chanting God’s name, his mind was in a state of absorption in the Divine. He was not feeling that he was separate from the Divine. The world, for the time being, disappeared from his mind. In this state he wandered all over India and God, in a mysterious way, looked after him.

  • AT THE FEET OF GOD

    This book captures the heart-pourings of Swami Ramdas during the early years of his itinerancy as a God-intoxicated Sadhu, who saw only his Lord of the Universe in everyone and everything. Here, he also gives some guidelines to be observed by a Sadhaka on the path of God-realisation.
    Free e-books also available in English.

  • IN THE VISION OF GOD

    In continuation to the book IN QUEST OF GOD, he wrote this book, recording his itinerancy throughout the country as a God-realised Sadhu. He experienced that he was living and moving in a new world in which he felt that there was none other than himself and his Great Master, his all in all. In this wonderful vision of inexpressible ecstasy and peace he struggled to dwell always. Even intellect and emotion seemed to have ceased to function. Truly, God by His power had eradicated from his heart the false, self-asserting ego, and was working Himself in its place – the one great power who causes both the internal and external movements in this world of phenomena.
    The narrative ends with the founding of Anandashram in 1931.

  • WORLD IS GOD

    This book is the outcome of Swami Ramdas’ world tour in 1954. In this tour, he experienced the world as a revelation of God, as the global expression of the Divine. Humanity is the heart of this world in which we live and move. The physical proximity, leading to the spiritual communion and fusion with all beings on the globe, was the foremost significant feature of this tour. The title of this book stands for the essentially-to-be reached milestone in the march of humanity towards the goal of world-union, goodwill and harmony.
