The Priest Wonho's Memories of Admiral Yi
What is the
truth about Islam?
- Is it the religion
of peace and hospitality that some claim, or is it a murderous faith savage terrorists use to justify the slaughter of innocents?
- Is Islam truly inherently anti-female, or has something gone very wrong in how Islam is interpreted
- Is the
Islam that is taught in most Moslem majority country today
really what the Prophet Mohammed (S) believed Allah intended?
- Is every woman who marries a Muslem man doomed to be a second-class
servant, or is there a way to keep this from happening?
Married To Islam answers these questions,
.One early reader said, "This is fascinating! Every US politician, every Christian priest
or minister, and all western women should know all this. Think of how many people it would help and the misunderstandings
it would prevent."
"This book shows where Mohammed, peace be upon him, and Islam parted ways! Modern
Islam regarding Terrorism, Treatment of Women, and more is way off base--and a humble Islamic housewife shows us how."
"Dalia Shah is one
heck of a woman! She's a credit to Allah, God--whatever name you use! Her marriage, and how she raises her children--Wow!"
A Nickel's Worth
Spiritual Message and Amazing Life
“Captain Bob” Nickel
A Nickel's Worth is all about Bob
Nickel--his life, his spiritual message, and much more. Bob went from being a hippie sailboat captain roaming the
seven seas to being an aircraft engineer to being a wonderful giver of Satsang --that is, he led spiritual meetings which
meant much to many people, especially in the last year of his life. (His website is www.bobnickelsatsang.com.) He
considered Sri Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi, Nisargadatta Maharaj, and V. Ganesan to be three of his primary
"Bob was unforgettable his whole life. He had adventures that mostly we only see in
movies," said Dr. John Nasse, a friend for over 40 years. "But it was his
ending--that last year of powerful satsangs-- that made his life so deliciously special."
A Nickel's Worth will shock
the people who met Bob as an older man fighting cancer and giving satsang, but these same sections will make some of his
old friends laugh. "Yup, that's what we did!" These old buddies, though, will be equally surprised by the spiritual
message Bob found and brought forth later in life.
"The Shiva Paradox is a novel that
could only have been written by someone who loved India in all its best and worst and most grand." "It's like 'The
Fugitive,' except he's spiritual, in India, and the bad guys are worse!" "I felt like I knew a lot of the characters,
and that I knew all of the places. Probably because I do! Mark Sawyer in this book has given people who've never been there
a chance to visit, and to hear and see and taste, the real thing." "This novel about India
should be made into a great movie!" B. Krishna, global spiritual sharer.
The Shiva Paradox
moves from Rishikesh all over India and then concludes at Tiruvannamalai. The spiritual matters are
given as actually spoken. The characters are all actual or based on real persons, including 'Captain Tom' who is really (90%)

Master, Swami, Nun
One very lucky man is able to meet
six of the greatest spiritual teachers
the 21st century.
A humble married gentleman who'd studied Zen,
a boy born into a family with a wondrous uncle,
a youth called to religion, to academia,
and then to India,
a bodybuilding Bombay banker who always told the truth,
a modern John Wayne who went "from pirate to guru,"
and a "Party Girl" who realized there
had to be more,
and found it.
Here are stories of the lives and incredible messages of six persons whose spiritual insights could change
more about some of these persons, you can go to:
A hard-nosed prosecutor receives a fatal diagnosis. He chooses to go on his dream trip, the one he'd always
Murder finds him again.
This time it is in wild, bizarre, corrupt, and wonderful India.
And he is the prime suspect.
