Book One of the Ten Book Project
Richard Payment of Vancouver has been putting in sterling and superb work, aided by a small team, on the first book to come from the International Book Project that has been in operation now for two years. It is the first of a planned series of ten books that will become an incomparable support to our meditation and insights, companions of our evening and travels, magical tools to inspire our inner growth. Books work differently than audio's or videos but they work and we have missed a printed version of the guidance of Our Mother for too long.
The working title of the first book is Within: Beyond Words, Beyond Books, Beyond Myths - The Final Steps in the Journey to Self-realization, and it is hoped that finished copies will be available for Sahaja Yogis, by the end of the year 2006. At the same time, the book will be offered for commercial publication to publishing houses in all the major countries of the world.
Nearly 600 of Shri Mataji's talks have now been transcribed by our teams of transcribers from 20 different countries around the world, and these provide the archive from which the books can be prepared. At the same time, these talks are being translated into Chinese, Russian, French, Italian and Romanian, by translators in those countries. This collective effort is clearly of major importance for posterity and the Publication Committee of the WCASY expresses here its gratitude to all the yoginis and yogis who work with enthusiasm on this project.
The Legend of Dagad Trikon
540 pages long, limited edition hardcover, ISBN 1-932406-01-8 price US$ 29.95
The new novel by Grégoire de Kalbermatten is now being printed and copies will be ready shortly. The novel was shown to Shri Mataji and Sir CP at their home in New Jersey , USA , and Shri Mataji was visibly pleased when asked for Her blessing.
One reader described the novel as “ a fast paced, amusing and contemporary plot guaranteed to keep you enthralled and guessing to the very end.” This entertaining work of fiction is meant to break into the cultural mainstream as it appeals to the millions of readers who are seekers. The professional book editor who edited the book, (a non-Sahaja yogi) said:
“ As the editor of the Legend of Dagad Trikon and of many other fantasy titles, this fascinating novel was unique for me in the sheer depth and scope of the stage on which it plays out. The breath-taking sweep of the author's knowledge of world cultures is evident on every page as the reader is transported from Delhi to Delphi, from Cairo to Oslo , from Moscow to Washington DC - all in pursuit of a secret that has the potential to change the course of human history. More importantly, the possibility of real human happiness is visualized and the very fate of our planet is at stake. We find ourselves caring deeply for the characters and it is the heady page-turning momentum of this fully realized fantasy that propels the reader onward. To read this novel is to embark on a journey, an adventure - a quest that is at least as richly rewarding as the search for the secrets of Dagad Trikon itself .”
