Excerpts from the book

Love all with love that none have felt, and brave The battle of life with strength unchained.”

—Paramhansa Yogananda

“Positive thinking and enthusiasm open the floodgates of our mind to an increased flow of energy. And a spirit of respect towards all people unites us with the great river of life.”

—Nayaswami Devi

I found out, once again, that the only true purpose of life is to find God…I learned not only the techniques of meditation, but more importantly the attitudes that lead to success, among which are deep devotion, regularity, persistence, self-offering, and many others…

And finally, most importantly, I learned that gratitude opens the heart and soul so that God’s light can enter and drive away the shadows that hide in the dark nooks and crannies of ego.”

—Nayaswami Jyotish

What Others Are Saying

“Having a long fascination with sparkling stones, whether precious, semi-precious, or even colorful faceted glass, I can say that “A Collection of Spiritual Gemstones” may be a very good description for Touch of Love. Each offering, though succinct and quickly read, is remarkable in how well it transmits some very bright sparks of Divine Love, which flows unhindered into the hearts of each reader. Even though the book’s short articles are filled with variety and charm, nevertheless they consistently show us how we are being offered endless Divine Love—easily perceived, if we’ll only stop for a moment to take notice. Treat yourself a year’s worth of the life-changing love-sparks that emanate from Touch of Love!”

—Savitri Simpson, author of The Meaning of Dreaming, Chakras for Starters, and the Treta Yuga Trilogy of spiritual novels.

“Jyotish and Devi’s Touch of Love collection of small doses of wisdom and inspiration is in turn candid, heartfelt, interesting, helpful, amusing, and moving. These two great souls bring over one hundred years of combined experience as deep seekers, meditators, counselors, disciples, teachers, spiritual guides, and devotees of God to the pages of this book, You’ll love it!”

—Joseph Puru Selbie, author of The Physics of God

Touch of Love is filled with potent yet compassionate insights into the spiritual path. It offers guidance much like the support of a wise friend. The deepest spiritual truths are presented with refreshing simplicity. I have found inspiration on every page and especially like this quote: “Love all with love that none have felt, and brave the battle of life with strength unchained.” 

—Lila Devi, author of 4 books, including The Essential Flower Essence Handbook and founder of Spirit-in-Nature Essences

“We sometimes forget how much our inner self needs stories like those offered in this book. I’ve been reading one story per night, right before sleep. This book is helping me understand the deeper meanings of love.”

—Nischala Cryer, Author, of the Amazon Bestseller, The Four Stages of Yoga
