There is a tide in the affairs of men which taken at
the flood, leads on to fortune... the tide in my case
was "Sri Krishna Lila"... the flood was "Nitya Yoga" and
the fortuene I got was the treasure of spirituality
plus a few extra years of my life.
I am now perusing
"Sri Devi Lila" and amd finding it fascinating, I have
no doubt that the "Lilas of the Sson of Shiva" will be
equally rewarding. Mataji's works will be a great boon
to the whole of humanity and all educated Hindus
should make it a point to read them.
The Lilas of Sons of Shiva is a unique new book by
Vanamali which unfolds the profound and inspiring legends of
Lord Ganasha, Lord Karthikeya and Lord Dharma Shasta.
Vanamali Mataji is cofounder of Vanamali Gita Yogashram which is a small spiritual retreat nestling at the foot of the Himalayas, beside the beautiful river Ganga, in the holy city of Rishikesh, North India. Vanamali is another name for Lord Krishna, who is the Lord and Master of Vanamali Ashram.
Vanamali has published a library of books known as “The Lila Library”, which reveals to us the esoteric secrets of the lives of the great Indian Gods. "Sri Krishna Lila” displays before us the glories of the life of Lord Krishna, the Poornavatara,(published as “The Play of God” in US).
"Sri Rama Lila" unfolds the inspiring legend of the Ramayana (published as "Song of Rama" in US.
“Sri Shiva Lila”, lays before us the amazing play of Shiva Nataraja.
“Sri Devi Lila”, gives us many fascinating glimpses into the different aspects of the Great Goddess-the Maha Devi. This is soon to be published in the US under the name of “Shakti”
AND NOW Vanamali has brought out the latest LILA –
“The Lilas of the Sons of Shiva”,
which gives us a glimpse into the esoteric secrets
of the sons of Shiva, the perfect yogi.
Other books by Vanamali are “Nitya Yoga: The Yoga of Constant Communion," which is a book of essays on the Srimad Bhagavad Gita. Along with it Vanamali offers a translation with transliteration of the actual text of the Srimad Bhagavad Gita.
The Taste Divine is a book on sattvic, vegetarian cooking, the natural way.
Vanamali has also brought out an original CD, composed and sung by her called “Vanamali Love Songs”.

All the Lilas are fully illustrated with original paintings by various artists.
Sri Matha Devi Vanamali is a devotee of Lord Vanamali, who has been chosen as an instrument of the Lord in starting and running Vanamali Ashram. She seeks to inculcate the ancient Vedic way of life. Sincere seekers who hope to improve their physical, mental and spiritual health through meditation, talks on the Srimad Bhagavad Gita and devotional chanting and puja are welcome to contact the Ashram. The course of instruction offered by Vanamali Ashram is designed to follow the ancient rules of harmonious living as expounded by Lord Krishna to Arjuna in the Srimad Bhagavad Gita.
Apart from its spiritual activities, Vanamali Ashram also does service to the poor people of the village. About 150 of the village children have been adopted by the Ashram and are given clothes, food and help in education. The ashram has started a project to provide small cottages for very poor and deserving families of the village, and a project which facilitates the crafting and distribution of Himalayan wild flower greeting cards by young girls of a tiny village in the Garwal Himalayas known as Gaja. In recent years, when prompted by Lord Vanamali, Sri Mata Vanamali travels throughout the world offering courses in the blessed way of life of the Sanatana Dharma and sharing the wisdom of The Srimad Bhagavad Gita.
