Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0876122004, Hardcover)"God Alone" was the motto and lifelong ideal of Sri Gyanamata, one of the most spiritually advanced disciples of Paramahansa Yogananda (the renowned author of the spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi). After her passing, he said, "A great saint has gone away...But she has left spiritual footprints here forever." Her letters (over a hundred of which appear in this book) reflect the luminous wisdom and pure insight of one who has truly lived for God alone. Whether writing on the ways of realizing God's presence or the right attitude toward spiritual discipline, the tests of faith or the tests of physical suffering, her words reveal the essential truth or lesson in each circumstance. To read her letters is to experience something of that clarity of vision, that unity of heart and intellect, which is known to all those who possess true wisdom but which few have put into words so compellingly.
In addition to Gyanamata's letters, God Alone contains a detailed account of her life; letters written to her from Paramahansa Yogananda and others who knew her; excerpts from her personal diary; and numerous photographs. An inspiring portrait of an illumined saint of modern times, it is also a legacy of her invaluable counsel - spiritual footprints left by her for all who seek to know the meaning of life and the reality of God's love.
