Sri Sri Balananda Brahmachari (circa 1827-1937) was a renowned saint who lived and preached in Deoghar in contemporary Jharkhand, India where he was revered as the “Living Shiva”. The saint renounced worldly life at the age of nine, exploring the holy places of India on foot and ultimately attaining the supreme state of self realization. He settled in the Karanibad Ashram in Deoghar in 1919 and became more accessible to devotees. This volume is a compilation of spiritual discourses of the saint over the period 1919-1934. His words, which remain relevant today, bring solace and hope and show the way to rise above suffering and uncertainty that plague mankind.
