MONUMENT ETERNAL • Swamini A.C. TuriyasangitanandaVedantic Press Books / 1978 / paperback
Swamini A.C. Turiyasangitananda [Alice Coltrane] has written this abridged documentary on her spiritual life entitled Monument Eternal, which tells of her spiritual initiation, revelations, and austerities.
Swamini has shared that this book is based upon a soul’s realizations in absolute consciousness and it’s spiritual relationship with the Supreme Lord. The first chapter views some of the spiritual, theoretical aspects of elements, nature, human and other living creatures and how they individually relate to the Supreme Reality.
Chapter two and three chronologically tell of her spiritual initiations, revelations, austerities and spiritual experiences. The penance endured was challenging, up-lifting and at times, startling. Chapters four and five reveal more spiritual revelations; a look into several past lifetimes, culminating in some of her most transcendental, blissful associations with the Supreme.
This is a powerful, moving account of Swamini A.C. Turiyasangitananda’s spiritual experiences and her unwavering devotion to God.
