was begun nearly a quarter century ago to answer a need for books
of enduring, spiritual interest. Its initial inspiration came about
through the publication in 1981 of The Hunger of the Soul,
described elsewhere in this site. Companions of God, by the
same author, will be released in the Spring of 2005. With a world today
experiencing increasing tension and disorder, there seems to be a need
as never before for stability, inner peace and a lasting joy that can
be found only through a spiritual grounding. We hope that our books
may make some small contribution to that goal.

Although our speciality is religious/philosophical manuscripts, other
nonfiction subject matter is welcomed.
These are our current publications:
Quest for the Eternal is a clear presentation of India's ancient philosophy written by a former monk of an Indian religious Order. It is a clear description and explanation of the basic principles and teachings of Vedanta, offering insights and direction for all who are seeking the wholeness, security and joy that can only be found in our connection to the one Source of all life and creation.
Anthology of Hindu Scripture, Commentary and Poetry is
a definitive collection of India’s religious writings from the
early Vedas that date from as far back as 2000 B.C. to such modern
sages as Ramana Maharshi. The book is a combined effort of Johnson
and his teacher and guru, Swami Prabhavananda, who is the respected
author and translator of numerous books on Hinduism.
Peace in a Busy World offers preteens and teenagers
an entrance into a world that is generally neglected by our educational
system. Written in a simple, direct style by a former monk who has
practiced meditation for more than forty years, this book offers its
readers insights gathered by the author over those years. Both techniques
of meditation as well as important moral principles are covered. The
main inspiration for this book came from working with youngsters in
his meditation classes at a local boys and girls club.
God, by Nancy Pope Mayorga, presents the lives
of twelve Eastern and Western saints that stretch over a period of
some 2,500 years from Lao Tse to Sri Sarada Devi. Each brief essay
is a gem of clarity and polish that characterizes Ms Mayorga’s
writing. Mayorga died in 1983, but these affectionately written biographies,
composed over a five-year period, can now be read and enjoyed by others–who
can perhaps obtain some insight into why she loved and admired these
saints so much.
| The Hunger
of the Soul by Nancy Pope Mayorga is the inspiring
spiritual diary of an American woman who experienced a spontaneous
spiritual awakening in 1947. For the next thirty years she chronicled
her inner spiritual journey and conversations with her Indian guru,
Swami Prabhavananda, with whom she studied for the next twenty-nine
years until his death in 1976.
