Touch of Love – Releasing February 2020
“We, and the very fabric of the atoms, are made from love and joy, and our hearts will never rest until we are reunited with that reality,” said author, Nayaswami Jyotish. When we welcome the presence of love into our lives, our entire existence is born anew.
After the success of their first two books, Touch of Light and Touch of Joy, Nayaswamis Jyotish and Devi return to accompany us on the journey of the heart — answering the call of true, unconditional love. This book is a compilation of weekly letters they posted in 2017 and 2018 to their popular blog, A Touch of Light. The letters are filled with spiritual teachings as practical as they are profound, faithfully shared in the spirit of their beloved guru, Paramhansa Yogananda, and his direct disciple, Swami Kriyananda.
