Swami Pranavananda vowed at a young age to awaken. In a jungle swamp opposite the cremation grounds of his Bengali village, he placed his asana. When he arose illumined, he returned to the village and offered the Ten Divine Messages. These first teachings are unique in that the Acharyadeva both posed the questions and answered them. With the blessings of Swami Parameshananda, Swamini Sri Lalitambika Devi offers a contemporary interpretation of these seminal teachings, revealing the true purpose of life and how to succeed on the spiritual journey.
