November 2005

Dear Friends,

We have some new expansions of our website and other offerings to share with you.

We Have a New Purchasing Page:

The goal of our website is to offer free spiritual resources for the hundreds of guests who visit from around the world each day. Since 1997, we've been committed to keeping the Night Lotus website free from commercialism, yet many visitors have requested information on how to purchase our spiritual offerings in book and CD form. Therefore, while keeping and adding to our free offerings, we've also added a new purchasing information page HERE.


* * * A Holiday Special * * *

The Glorious Bhagavad Gita: Sung in English

Two CDs for the Price of One

Since this is the first holiday season in which Night Lotus Productions has products available for retail sale, we are celebrating with our first holiday special: a 2 for 1 offer on our 2-CD set of The Glorious Bhagavad Gita: Sung in English.

All 18 chapters are
available to play online HERE

The 2-CD set is also available for purchase below

Mention this 2 for 1 offer when you order this CD online until the end of 2005, and we will be happy to send you two CDs for the price of one. Give one and keep one for yourself, or give several as holiday presents -- it is a great gift to give the blessings of this scripture in a format and presentation that brings its wisdom to life.

Feedback from listeners of this CD:

Congratulations on putting such a masterful work together. Putting the English together with the melody and crafting such an excellent fit must have been quite a challenge. I followed it in my Bhagavad Gita and it maintained the integrity of the translation beautifully. Again, congratulations on being such a great vehicle for the shakti. - AJ (Author)

I'm listening to the Bhagavad Gita cd this evening, and loving it so much that I wanted to write and tell you how much beauty and devotion you bring to it. The translation is terrific, the tune is lovely and heart-touching and your voice is so sweet and pure that it really gives a transmission of the love and wisdom that clings so powerfully to this beautiful text.   So thank you for creating this lovely way of making the Bhagavad Gita accessible!   - SK (Meditation Teacher)

Your voice opens the door to settle into a deeper place of listening and remembering; this time bringing us into the battlefield of this rich tradition of yoga and the teachings of the Bhagavad-Gita. I appreciate the clarity of translation and the entrancing melody that you present it in. -  BV (Yoga Teacher)

We Have Two New Books:

Our first new book is:

Breakthrough Consciousness:
Exploring Who We Are
and Why We Are Here

BREAKTHROUGH CONSCIOUSNESS is available for purchase at, and the entire book is also available to read online for free.

BREAKTHROUGH CONSCIOUSNESS is a philosophical exploration of the evolution of the individual soul, integrating teachings, studies, and wisdom from Kashmir Shaivism, psychology, science, contemplative introspection, and grace. This is not as light a read as my other books, but is a great resource for those who are looking for deep and action-packed contemplation.

Chapter titles include: Mind at Large; Infinite Personal Expression; True Wealth; The Healing Breath; Sleep Dreams, Waking Dreams; and The Ever Elusive "I".




Things That Make You Go Oooommmmm


Our second new book is Things that Make You Go Oooommmm, a beautiful, color book with fifty photo-aphorisms.

View a slideshow of all 50 photo-aphorisms HERE.

Purchase a copy of Things that Make You Go Oooommmmm HERE.
