Ananda Katha by Ácárya Naginá

Acarya Chandranathji has written in his foreword to Ananda Katha, “I consider Acarya Nagina, a great devotee of modern times, as Bhaktiraj, the king of Devotees.” Baba Himself said, “Nagina is a true lover of Justice. That is why I love him. . .”. Naginada however, frequently refers to himself in deprecating terms, and it is this humility, together with unflinching honesty and self-analysis, that makes Ananda Katha not only a collection of inspiring stories about Baba and a much beloved devotee, but a practical guide for all sadhakas. No one who has grappled with their own discipline, practices and failings can fail to be inspired and encouraged by these stories of a fellow spiritual wayfarer also struggling, but nevertheless being both favored and lovingly guided by his guru. Naginada’s closeness and familiarity with Baba makes him seem at first a world apart; then his self-confessed weaknesses and unwitting mistakes allow us to identify with him and feel that perhaps we too can be accepted so closely and loved so intimately by Baba. Ananda Katha is truly a handbook for every person on the spiritual path.
