Description
About the Book

High on Waves is a compilation of Swami Satyananda Saraswati's poems, spanning several decades. These pure, simple and sattwic verses are like the waves of Sri Swamiji's inner Ganga, which bathe the reader in bhakti and faith, and take one on a pilgrimage to higher dimensions of consciousness.

From childhood, Sri Swamiji's penchant for spiritual composition was evident. At the age of fifteen, he translated the classical text, Vairagya Shatak, by Sage Bhartrihari from Sanskrit to Hindi. Such inspiration could only be a manifestation of sadhanas and samskaras from previous lives.

After he left home, the writing continued. At his guru's ashram in Rishikesh, the flowers of his sentiments were offered at Swami Sivananda's feet through songs to guru as the source of all knowledge. Thereafter, whether living as a parivrajaka, wandering mendicant, or leading a world yoga movement, Sri Swamiji always found moments to inscribe in verse the voice of his soul.

As these verse songs have been written over a wide period of time, they provide glimpses of the different stages of spiritual life that a sadhaka can pass through. They contain the inspiration of a spiritual aspirant and also the wisdom of a realized saint, as well as the knowledge of the Bhagavad Gita, the Upanishads, the Vedas and the Puranas. The subjects are vast, but each composition will awaken in us the purest and most sublime sentiments.

Sri Swamiji called these creations 'High on Waves'. The poems do not necessarily follow a standard rhythm or metre, for when a saint's heart vibrates to divine notes verses are created spontaneously. Traditional rules of grammar or syntax no longer apply, as their significance lies in their inspiration.

As Sri Swamiji says:

That which has neither note nor tone, That which does not recognize speed or cadence, For the special listener, let me sing such songs. Every word in this collection will inspire the faithful, filled as they are with the fragrance of a saint's inner world.

Testimonials
I received my Manjushri statue today and I can't put in words how delighted I am with it! Thank you very much. It didn't take very long to get here (the UK) - I wasn't expecting it for a few more weeks. Your support team is very good at providing customer service, too. I must conclude that you have an excellent company.
Mark, UK.
A very comprehensive site for a company with a good reputation.
Robert, UK

Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.

I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
Steven, USA
Great Website! fast, easy and interesting!
Elaine, Australia
I have purchased from you before. Excellent service. Fast shipping. Great communication.
