A Chiropractor by profession, Dr Lalit Sodha DC wrote the book as a result of more than 10 years worth of research and searching for answers about the Pushtimarg faith. His inspiration was all of the challenges he faced during his life, through which his faith in Shreenathji bhagwan grew stronger.
”In 2002 , I was faced with some very testing times. I felt lost. It felt like I had no where to turn to.” said Sodha. ”However, through every challenge my faith in my Shreenathji bhagwan grew stronger and stronger and this increased my desire to find out more about Shreenathji bhagwan.”
The book was launched by Pujya Shree JeJe who flew in from India especially for the event.
The book, written in English is aimed to enlighten people all over the world about the teachings of, and behind Shreenathji bhagwan and Pushtimarg, which means the path of Grace. The book also includes a fantastic colorful pictoral display illustrating many teachings in the faith.
The proceeds of the book will go towards the Shreenathji Haveli Project in Leicester, which will be opened this weekend, 5th & 6th November.
