K.K. Sah was a lifelong devotee of Maharaji and a close family friend of Ram Dass since he first met Maharaji in 1967. It was K.K. who served as Ram Dass’ translator when he communicated with Maharaji, and took Ram Dass into his home and introduced him to Indian family life.
K.K. passed away at his home in the town of Nainital in Northern India on January 14th, 2020. We are eternally grateful to K.K. for being a living example of unconditional love and devotion. He was a mentor, friend and brother to all.
“Love” – Written by K.K. Sah
Enter into an Indian family and then you can understand love. Love does not wait for logic and is the easiest path of all.
The first test of love is that it knows no bargaining—true love cannot exist in an arrangement by two parties. Love is always the giver not the taker.
Love can conquer everything. It is the best medicine. It can take you to God because love is God.
It is all powerful. It knows no fear. It is the highest ideal
Love is higher than work, than yoga, than knowledge, although the highest forms of love and wisdom are in reality one.
Duty is seldom sweet. It becomes sweet only through love which shines only in freedom.
Every motion is a circle. Therefore do not hate anyone because that hatred which comes out of you must in the long run come back to you. When you send love it will naturally come back to you, completing the circle.
Love attracts human beings to each other, animals to animals and all of creation in an endless embrace.
Love manifests from the lowest atom to the highest being- it is omnipotent and all pervading.
Love is the one motive power that pervades the entire universe – unattached – yet shining in everything and without which the whole universe would fall to pieces in a moment.
– K.K. Sah

Deva Bhumi: The Abode of the Gods in India by K.K. Sah
In Deva Bhumi We get an opportunity to hear of the vibrancy and spiritual tapestry of this very special region of India where the divine presence presided through these beloved Gurus in K.K.’s story. We also hear, for the first time, the stories of one particular Saint of this region of the Himalayas, Sombari Baba, who exemplified the enigmatic and holy presence of a completely free being or as it is known in India, a Siddha- a fully accomplished and realized being.
K.K. passes forward the love and wisdom of these very special beings who represent the promise of what we can be as humans. It is the story of a place on our planet that has been the centre of a tradition of love, compassion and service through the living examples of these great beings.
K.K. describes the Ramayana (a famous Hindu epic tale) as the beginning of his understanding of love, even from a very early age. He decided to create an introduction to the Ramayana for Westerners who wanted to understand the meaning of love, devotion, service and remembrance. K.K. said, “Once a person takes a deep dive into the Ramayana, they can get everything they need without doing any specific practices, and in truth since Ram acted as a family man in the Ramayana with a wife and children, father and mother, he set an example for us to be able to understand love through our family.”
SHARANAGATI: The True Meaning of Surrender from the Bhakti Yoga Tradition – A teaching by K.K. Sah
In the West the word “surrender” means the act of yielding to the power of another or the acknowledgement of defeat. This does not, in any way, reflect the true meaning of the process of surrender in the Hindu spiritual tradition. As far as my own knowledge, I have not found an equivalent English word for the process which, in Hindi, is called sharanagati – the process of surrender…
