Great poets and mystics of ages past have written about their visions and personal experiences of the divine. Love Whispers is a collection of such writings: poems, prose, and dialogues exceptional in their beauty and spiritual depth. For many years, Sri Swami Rama kept diaries in which he reflected on life and nature and recorded his dialogues with the Divine Mother. He long kept these secret, not wanting these intimate experiences to be consumed by those who might not understand their exalted simplicity.
Love Whispers is the first time these personal and inspired writings have been published. Written in Japan, Nepal, and the Himalayas, this collection of entries will elevate your heart. Swami Rama's writing offers a rare opportunity to glimpse the true nature of mystical awareness and the heart of divine love.

About the Author
One of the greatest adepts, teachers, writers, and humanitarians of the 20th century, Swami Rama (1925-1996) is the founder of the Himalayan Institute. Born in Northern India, he was raised from early childhood by the Himalayan sage, Bengali Baba. He traveled from monastery to monastery and studied with a variety of Himalayan saints and sages. Swami Rama also received higher education in both India and Europe. From 1949 to 1952, he held the prestigious position of Shankaracharya in South India. He then returned to his master to receive further training at his cave monastery. In 1969 he came to the United States. His best known work, Living With the Himalayan Masters, reveals the many facets of this singular adept and demonstrates his embodiment of the living tradition of the East.
Exerpt from Love Whispers
The moonlit night paled its light on the silvery sands, and a crying thought came to my mind from out of teh forgotten past, saying, "the joy that sites still with its tears on the red lotus of pain grows in my heart."
