The Art of Spiritual life is a poetic title, not a literal one. It is not a how-to book, as would be "the art of cooking" or "the art of creative knitting." The title is a double entendre. Much of my life's calling has been as a fine artist, and thus the title refers to my personal journey — as a visual artist and someone attempting to learn the "art" of spiritual life.
It is a memoir in which I invite you to come along with me as I share my life-experiences with two world renowned saints. These saints carried me on journeys to other lands, other times, and other worlds by their guidance regarding the eternal wisdom of ancient India. What I received from them became the subject of my art and my life. The goal of this memoir is to share my experiences of their divine presence and their message of devotional consciousness. My sharing is but a drop of the causeless mercy they bestowed upon their thousands of students and the world.
