Janaka's Inspirational Books: Words to Uplift and Reveal
Janaka's inspirational books, "Footprints Along the Shore of an Incoming Tide" and "Silent Ripples" are works that will uplift one's spirit and reveal one's true nature.
I love Janaka's writing and artwork. What a combination! What spirited high consciousness. In one breath, Janaka's work lifts you up and at the same time keeps you down to earth. I love how his writing combines opposites and how his beautiful wisdom comes through and often catches me unaware. This is a book to refer to time and time again.
--Gloria Wendroff, 'Heavenletters: Love Letters from God'
Janaka, poet, artist, author, offers a collection of original parables written while traveling in Australia, Asia, and the United States. They are an archetypal landscape floating before us as we read; our attention drawn to this or that, each person, each time, differently. This is a Dreaming meant to represent the qualities Soul must find if it is ever to re-awaken to itself. Parables traditionally seem to be a special kind of writing; we have to retain ourselves to read them. It is like reading poetry or somewhere in between.--Barnes and Noble customer
Come and enjoy Janaka's experiences of the Supreme Adventure, the blissful and endless journey to the heart of all being. As I read his accounts of the beings, states, and places he encounters on this wonderful journey, I realize that there is no adventure that compares to this one.--Barnes and Noble customer
The parables set forth in Silient Ripples present often forgotten and all too seldom used universal truths in a both compelling and immenently readable fashion. Janaka presents life's lessons in a manner that affects the individual and compells one to reexamine one's "truths"in a non judmental manner. Truly a beautiful and enlightening book.--William, California
It's often hard to put into words one's relationship with self and God and our reason for being. The longing for love and the moments of pure grace that fill our hearts, with the simplest of joys that remind us of the unjourneying I need to take in order to feel God in my being. This book (Footprints Along the Shore of an Incoming Tide) evoked a deep sense of gratitude the words and images it created, short stories and poetry stirred my heart with an understanding of our deepest yearning. Thank you Janaka.....--Amazon customer

Silent Ripples: Parables for the Soul
Stories to inspire, guide and awaken us back to the Source of All That Is.
Throughout the ages, all over the world, stories have been used to inspire, to guide and to awaken humanity in our quest to rediscover our Divinity. In a style similar to Kahlil Gibran, Silent Ripples: Parables for the Soul, is a collection of 23 parables to remind the reader of our Absolute, Unchanging, Divine Self. Greatly inspired by A Course in Miracles, the tarot and the sage Ramana Maharshi, these stories were written while the author was on his world travels. The parables are eclectic in nature, incorporating a multiple of archetypes for people of different backgrounds and upon different paths. Like the tarot, which is a collection of images representing qualities the soul must develop on her way to Self-awareness, these parables represent such qualities as well. Some stories may seem contradictory to other ones, but they are actually only another viewpoint of the indefinable Truth of existence.
Available in both paper and ebook form.
