'A Beard In Nepal 2. Return to the Village' is the story of Fiona and Tod's second visit to the village of Salle, high in the Himalayas of Nepal. They returned to take presents and supplies to the villagers. The book is again full of humour as the couple from Liverpool trek with Kalyani (the village school headmistress) to a remote, hidden valley where her new husband's family live, braving again those incredibly high, dangerous roads through the mountains. This book gives us more detail about the villagers lives, and the lives of the wonderful, happy village children, who live so very differently from their Western counterparts. It also touches on the downside of life in Nepal today; the corruption, the destruction of the forests, lack of electricity, and lack of clean water. 'A Beard In Nepal 2' tells us about Fiona and Tod's encounter with black, poisonous spiders; how they avoided having to eat a cockerel; a water buffalo that snores so loudly it has to sleep in its own specially built shelter; and once again the nightmare of travelling in a local bus through the remote tracks in the high Himalayas. The book also looks at developments in Kathmandu, such as the 'removal' of 10,000 street dogs in the last few months.

'A Beard In Nepal' is the story of the five months Tod and Fiona spent in a small, remote village high in the Himalayas of Nepal, attempting to teach English to the village children. It is the story of an ordinary (?) middle aged couple from Liverpool who did an extraordinary thing, and lived to tell the tale. The book is an often humorous account of the challenges they faced while, for example, trying to teach the children in a small wooden hut, high up in the middle of a forest, without the benefit of water, electricity or toilet. They faced a constant struggle with the horrendous, debilitating effects of altitude sickness; the always present threat from wild tigers; severely restricted diet; and hair raising journeys along some of the highest, most dangerous roads in the world. They were among the first white people ever to visit the village of Salle, and could not have been received more warmly by the villagers and children, who did everything they could to make Tod and Fiona's stay in the village a happy one. We follow the couple as they teach a variety of sports and games to the children; as Tod builds them a see-saw; and as they brave the chaotic and dangerous mountain roads to visit the old Everest Base Camp of Edmund Hillary's time. The book highlights a number of interesting areas, not least the immense difference between the lives of the village children in Nepal and those of the children growing up in the West. Fiona and Tod also managed to visit Tibet, and climbed up to the awesome Potala Palace in Lhasa, having water thrown at them by a Chinese dignitary along the way. And of course the book also focuses on the time they spent in dirty, grimy, manic Kathmandu. 'A Beard In Nepal' is on Amazon as an Ebook and has downloaded approx 3,000 copies. The second part, 'A Beard In Nepal 2. Return to the Village' is now also out.

Have you ever wondered if we live when we die? Do our beloved pets live on after death? Will we see them again? Have you ever thought you've seen a dark, ghostly figure out of the corner of your eye, but it vanished when you looked towards it? How many times have you awoken suddenly, certain that someone has called your name, but there is no one to be seen? What is clairvoyance? How does a medium make contact with the Spirit World? What is a ghost, and can we communicate with one?

The Curse is the third book in the series 'Memories from a Medium's Life'. Fiona Roberts is a working Medium, and has been involved in the world of the Paranormal for more than thirty years. In this book she recounts more fascinating encounters with Spirit people and animals, from her readings, from the past, and from friends' experiences. These true stories and anecdotes are not written in any particular chronological order, and she dips in and out of the past, as well as reproducing material from present day readings and events. The subject matter is equally diverse, and ranges from serious to comical, and from sad to inspiring. However, please note that what you will not find in this book is a list of examples and explanations of the phenomena mentioned in it. You will not discover here what a ghost is, and how it differs from a Spirit person; you will not find an explanation of how, why and when mediumship or clairvoyance occur; and you will not learn why some people occasionally have spontaneous Spirit visions. That is because all of these things, and many more beside, have already been examined in detail in her previous book, 'Voices'. Nevertheless, in the chapters that follow, you will encounter many interesting and varied facets of the life of a Medium, and will hopefully learn something new and thought provoking about a range of different forms of communication with the Spirit World.

What happens to a community when the majority of young people leave their homes to pursue an education? From a Trickle to a Torrent documents the demographic and social consequences of educational migration from Nubri, a Tibetan enclave in the highlands of Nepal. The authors explore parents’ motivations for sending their children to distant schools and monasteries, social connections that shape migration pathways, young people’s estrangement from village life, and dilemmas that arise when educated individuals are unable or unwilling to return and reside in their native villages. Drawing on numerous decades of research, this study documents a transitional period when the future of a Himalayan society teeters on the brink of irreversible change.

The present-day society is moving towards a new era – an era in which man’s power, prosperity, development, happiness, accomplishments, complete overall progress, his spiritual state – all this will be decided solely and only by his Chitta-Shakti (will power). The youth of the present generation as well as of the future generations, will have to make their chitta extremely powerful and pure. These generations will perform the spiritual practice of meditation and invite the Gurus on the earth; they will become the parents of the Gurus and will create a new era. These future generations will maintain the existence of humanity. In order to make the chitta of the youth and the children stronger, in order to give them the required guidance, His Holiness Gurudev has written some messages. This booklet is a compilation of those same messages.

The Fifteenth 45 days Deep Meditation Practicum was accomplished from 25th January to 11th March 2021 by His Holiness Shree Shivkrupanand Swamiji. The past year taught us how to connect with the subtle energies and turn inwards; and this Deep Meditation Practicum has been the best opportunity to put this into practice, and connect with the Guru Element. This booklet - ‘Messages from the Guru Element’ - is a compilation of His Holiness Shree Shivkrupanand Swamiji’s messages which have been given during this Deep Meditation Practicum, through which he has given personal guidance to every sadhak and directed him on his spiritual path. Through this booklet, His Holiness Gurudev has not only elaborated on the ‘Guru Element’, but he has also explained in detail how we can establish oneness with it, and attain the state of Moksha.

His Holiness Shivkrupanand Swami, the proponent of ‘Samarpan Dhyan Sanskar’ has been conducting the 45 days Deep Meditation Practicum for the past 14 years at Samarpan Ashram, Dandi. During this period, His Holiness Swamiji is in a highly exalted state of meditation and keeps sending written messages for the spiritual upliftment of people from all sections of society. His Holiness Swamiji has declared the year 2020 as ‘Children’s Year’. His Holiness Swamiji has specifically written for and addressed children through the medium of these messages during this Practicum and is inspiring them to connect with Samarpan Dhyan Sanskar (Samarpan meditation values) to help them lead a healthy, safe and value-based life in today’s competitive and stressful environment. This booklet is a compilation of those same messages. Children can absorb the Samarpan meditation values through regular meditative practice; they can activate their inner energies and develop a positive and strong protective shield, and protect themselves from the dreadful disease of depression which is going to spread very fast in the near future. They can lead a positive, balanced, successful, innocent and contented life. They canobtain the Karma-free state in this life itself, and then they will be able to attain the state of Moksha (liberation). This process will surely prove to be a milestone on the journey towards the creation of a New Era. We believe that not only children but adults too will benefit through the medium of these messages.

“In this world, it is the ‘Maternal Power’ that re-creates all things; and therefore, it is impossible for any activity to happen in a positive form without this energy.” This booklet is a collection of priceless messages for woman-power (stree-shakti), full of pure and holy feelings. His Holiness Shivkrupand Swami had given these messages during the 45 days Deep Meditation Practicum for ‘Maternal Energy’ in the year 2009, for the sadhikas (female sadhaks) who represent motherhood.
