“Those who have heard Swamiji speak are surely aware of his unique ability to tune into the consciousness of his listeners. How does it work if we are listening to a recording? In a ‘treasures’ talk I heard, Swamiji in his typical fashion cracked a funny joke and the audience broke into a cheerful giggle.  As I heard this, I saw myself smiling and felt my heart mysteriously opening up. That instant, I was no longer driving in traffic but was transported into the past, sitting now amidst the laughing audience, with Swamiji directly addressing me. These talks to me are like a portable paradise in the pocket. Thanks for making these recordings, and through them, Swamiji’s consciousness available to all.”.”  S.S., Palo Alto, CA
