Pathfinder’s Library

These lessons are a profound introduction to the mystical teachings of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami. They focus on awareness, which is our real essence, and on how we can more consciously experience awareness and thus move effectively forward on the spiritual path. There is precious little about religion here, which many will find refreshing. The course is based on the eponymous series of small books the author published in the early 1970s. Below is the course curriculum.
