“There is neither creation nor destruction,
Neither destiny nor free will,
Neither path nor achievement;
This is the final truth.”
– Sri Ramana Maharshi.
“Radiant black storm clouds
expand across the sky of pure awareness.
The peacock of my mind reveals its brilliant colors,
dancing in the bliss of holy expectation.
Kali’s wisdom thunder rumbles
with her power that can level mountains.
The fiery tracery of lightning flashes
forms her wonderful smile of ecstasy.” – Ramprasad Sen

His latest book was The Magickal Union of East and West: The Spiritual Path to New Aeon Tantra. This book is a synthesis of Eastern and Western philosophies that gives tools for self discovery and self actualization in any circumstance.
Recent collaborations include Rainbow Bridge: The Shakta Tantra of the Uttarakaulas, an exploration and elaboration with John Power on the North Indian Uttarakaula Sampradaya of tantra, and its evolution in the West.

Hiking, trekking, and travel are some of his favorite activites. He enjoys traveling to sacred sites around the world and exploring spiritual practices from many cultures and traditions. Nature is his primal worship, with the crisp air of the Himalayas or the deep forests favored over temples built by hand. Nature and the night sky hold a deep wisdom for us, if only we are willing to open up and experience.
