I was lost when I started on the spiritual path a few years ago. I didn’t know where to start. It wasn’t the lack of resources. The problem was too many resources. How to separate the wheat from the chaff? Over the years, I learned to do precisely that. I have shared the links to audio classes, YouTube channels, and books by the Gurus I have learned from and books that have influenced me deeply at various stages of my journey.

Enjoy learning!
