Satsang with Swami Z
His qualifications are nonexistent and so is he.  I met this swami when he moved into my home and soon he was giving satsang right in front of my nose.  Not only that but people were falling in love with him.  As Ram Dass says, "What to do?"  Wearing not a blanket but a bedsheet, Swami began making cookies and holding forth in 2002.  If I am lucky, he will run out of quaint sayings, but never out of cookies.

How You Can Help

My writing is a labor of love and yet there are expenses involved. Spiritual teachings are given from the heart and yet the body lives in the world.
