SKU: The Light That Awakens Category:


Consciously or unconsciously, we are all seeking fulfillment in life, whether it is through a relationship, career, knowledge, talents, empowerment, helping others or spiritual enlightenment. The Light That Awakens reveals that the source of our seeking is not outside of us but within—a boundless reservoir of wisdom, peace, power, light and bliss. That reservoir has been called consciousness.

While science is currently exploring consciousness to understand the secrets of the universe, the sages of ancient India utilized meditation to explore the Reality behind creation. It is this universal wisdom that Swami Amar Jyoti imparts in simple and transparent language for today’s seeker.

Speaking from the highest spiritual attainment, Swami Amar Jyoti shows us that spirituality does not have to be austere or difficult. Aspirants from many paths and traditions will appreciate this gentle guide for finding the sublime in every moment.

Comments & Reviews

The Light That Awakens is a majestic book. Swami Amar Jyoti was one of the few great yoga gurus who actually spent time in the West training others. His disciples have repaid his kindness by sharing his teachings in this book. For those who did not get to learn from Swami when he was in his body, now is the chance to receive his teachings via this treasure of a small book. ~ Prem Prakash, Green Mountain School of Yoga, Middlebury, VT

Swami Amar Jyoti guides us into the higher spiritual realms through his words. In The Light That Awakens: A Guidebook to Higher Consciousness, Swamiji offers a simple path to becoming a spiritual being. His words awaken us no matter what religion, tradition, or path we are on. If we follow the heart of consciousness, Swamiji’s teachings will touch us in a way that we will find peace within our own hearts. This is an interfaith book filled with interfaith thoughts. This is a book filled with gems that take the seeker from a space of stress and tension. His words offer opportunities for the seeker to gain insight into knowing the unknown.

The most important thing we can do for humanity is to stay open, listen and serve. ~ Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati, founder of Kashi Foundation and Ashram, Sebastian, Florida
