Introduction:

Spiritual Warrior, Volume 1: Uncovering Spiritual Truths in Psychic Phenomena consists of lectures given by His Holiness Bhakti Tirtha Swami to a wide variety of live, radio and television audiences around the world, over a period of several years. Because the topics were originally presented in spoken form, the style is conversational and informal. In the editing process, we have modified the text to enhance readability, yet sought to preserve some of the verbal nuances that would maintain the mood of the original presentations. By so doing, we hope to create an atmosphere that literally makes you part of the audience, where you can experience the powerful presence of the speaker as he shares essential nourishment for the soul.
Spiritual Warrior Volume 2: In a world gone haywire, where wars rage around the globe, people are overcome with fear and despair, and the planet itself is in crisis, is there any hope? Yes, replies Bhakti-Tirtha Swami in no uncertain terms, Spiritual Warrior II: Transforming Lust into Love shows us a way out, demonstrating that our various problems come from a common root: lust. As a desire for self-centered gratification in all aspects of life, lust lures and deludes us, leading us into the many impasses that confront us today. The antidote is love-selfless, unconditional love—and its inseparable companion, service. Are we ready to conquer lust and offer love to others? Are we prepared to become spiritual warriors, helping to relieve the suffering on this planet? Each of us can make a difference. This book shows us how.
Spiritual Warrior, Volume 3: Solace for the Heart in Difficult Times consists of lectures given by His Holiness Bhakti Tirtha Swami (Swami Krishnapada) so a wide variety of live, radio and television audiences around the world, over a period of several years. Because the topics were originally presented in spoken form, the style is conversational and informal. In the editing process, we have modified the text to enhance readability, yet sought to preserve some of the verbal nuances that would maintain the mood of the original presentations. By so doing, we hope to create an atmosphere that literally makes you part of the audience, where you can experience the powerful presence of the speaker as he shares essential nourishment for the soul.
Spiritual Warrior, Volume 4: The spiritual warrior must protect the healthy and serve the wounded. Although this negative culture will continuously increase, the spiritualist has the duty to try to counteract its influence and facilitate the victims. If possible, spiritualists should first try to weed out the enemies in their own consciousness and then act as spiritual warriors to assist others.
Spiritual Warrior, Volume 5: Wounded or not wounded, if you develop a more positive internal W dialogue, you can join as a leader in the transcendental army of spiritual warriors. We want to gradually turn our mind into the deepest lover without fear of distraction from the different allurements or even fear of loving deeply, Yes, the enemies of the mind are getting stronger, but the spiritual warrior's ranks are also increasing.
Spiritual Warrior, Volume 6:  When we look at ourselves as human beings, we have to watch our thoughts because our thoughts lead to words. We watch our words: they lead to actions. We have to watch our actions because actions become our habits. We should watch our habits because they become our culture. We want a culture of divinity. not a culture of sectarianism, fanaticism, incarceration, and war. We want a culture of liberation that is about love and service to God and all creation.
