With so many disingenuous people trying to sell things by any means necessary, can you believe an author who claims his conversations in his debut book, A Thousand Seeds of Joy, is directly with two Goddesses – Lakshmi and Saraswati? Well, there are many atheists in the world today who won’t consider this possible. Even for those who believe in the God-System, (myself included), believing such a claim can be difficult. However, I will narrate my experience with Ananda Karunesh – the author of A Thousand Seeds of Joy.
Ananda Karunesh is an Indian living and working in the US as a professor. He had his first spiritual awakening–which he calls a Zen awakening–at the age of 19. This opened up a world of expanded spiritual awareness. After spending his life meditating and growing in self-discovery for more than 35 years, Ananda Karunesh has published his book filled with delightful conversations with Goddesses Lakshmi and Saraswati.
Though believing this may be difficult, after reading the book, you can be certain that the thoughts and understanding presented in the book can come only from some authoritative position. Many insights in this book feel so deep as if they come from a place far beyond human perception. He certainly claims many things which we cannot imagine from our limited and narrow perspectives.
In the world of spiritual writing, Ananda Karunesh’s addition is wonderful because his Neo-concepts and retrospective perspectives on much what we already know are quite surprising and somewhat unorthodox. A Thousand Seeds of Joy is only a precedent that he has established and will be followed by more books of similar depth and wisdom with other Goddesses from the Hindu and the Buddhist pantheons. Ananda believes that one just needs to connect from the Third and higher chakras with the divine beings. Answering a question on ways to connect with the Goddesses as he does, he says:
“Meditation does not guarantee that one will connect, and not knowing how to meditate does not mean that one cannot connect with divine beings. If one is blessed with the gift of “open” higher chakras, then one can connect even without totally silencing the mind. However, one has to be careful when one’s higher chakras are open and the ego is not dissolved fully. Such a person can get in trouble trying to connect with Gods and Goddesses. Remember, not all non-physical beings are “divine” and a person with too much ego can get confused easily as the ego has a blinding effect on one’s mind. Surrendering with great humility is required on this path every step of the way. Only by removing oneself completely one can receive information which is not filtered by one’s subtle ego processes.”
Ananda is available on social media platforms for public queries and responses. You can also connect with him and ask him your questions directly. I will be writing a book review of A Thousand Seeds of Joy very soon.
