Dasbodh is a classic spiritual text that until recently has been largely unavailable in the West. The text was written in the late 17th Century by the great Saint, Shri Samartha Ramdas in the Marathi language. Marathi is the native language of Maharashtra State in India. The book was originally written in a poetic style and is presented in the format of a conversation between a Master and listeners. Many questions are answered and many doubts are cleared about non-duality and spiritual life.

In Dasbodh, Samartha Ramdas presents the essence of many Vedic texts. This book is truly a manual for life, in the highest sense. It has been popular for many years in India and has only recently begun to receive recognition in the West. Dasbodh is somewhat unique among spiritual literature in that it not only expounds the classic themes of discrimination between the true and the untrue, detachment, devotion, and the nature of the Self that are commonly found in Vedic literature, but it also provides us with detailed instruction on how to function and excel in society from a place of deep spiritual understanding.

Highly revered by hundreds of millions of Indian devotees over that past three centuries, this text is truly a “Grantharaj,” a King among spiritual books.
