There is no friend as loyal as a book.

 --Ernest hemingway

While walking through the gates of the Pragati maidan, to check out the 2012 world Book Fair in Delhi in March 2012, i chanced upon the above eye catching hoarding on the side walks.  I did not look out for this book or the author, the renowned Shri Rajinder Singh maharaj Ji, but three months later i bought this book , 'Spark of the Divine' which was launched at the Book Fair.

From the very  onset as you first set eyes on this book's cover,

 it has a heealing an soothing feel to it. And then as you turn the high quality Art paper pages , the book enfolds its beauty to you.  

Divided in three parts:

Igniting the flame

Maintaining the flame

The Eternal flame

the book is  literally full of pearls of wisdom.

Included there in are examples from daily life to put cross divine thoughts. Be it the characteristic traits of animals like the pride of the lion, the lust of the elephant or the single minded pursuit of goal of the humble ant, it is a delight to read. 

Maharaj Rajinder Singh has aptly given the example of Olympic winners to illustrate the passion for excelence and winning of the athletes as a similie to having a Passion to keep the Inner flame of Divinity eternally burning inside us.

I have already shared two Facebook statuses and i will be doing one more post based on his book.

Shri Rajinder Singh Maharaj is an Internationally renowned spiritual master of meditation the Inner Light, head of Science of spirituality, a Non profit Non denominational organization that provides a forum for people to learn meditation, experience personal transformation and bring about inner and outer peace and human unity, besides  other spiritual organizations.

After finishing this book, I was full of a never felt before peace, pervading not only me but my home too.

A wonderful book to be read by anyone with even a slightest bent towards spirituality.

In one word, i was transformed and have become a fan of the Maharaj. 

He has written several other books and i can't wait to read more of this amazing spiritual world leader.
