"Decide to be happy. If you suffer, suffer consciously, with hope in your heart; feel it as a challenge given to you, that wading about in your own sufferings—overdoing and exaggerating them—is not worthy of you."

– Arnaud Desjardins

Toward the Fullness Life

Toward The Fullness Of Life

The Fullness of Love

This is a book for those of us who have not given up on the possibility of a successful love life. Arnaud teaches us that relationship requires the heart of a child joined with the maturity of an adult who is capable of understanding and acting. Some of the chapter titles include: The Union of the Sexes, Marriage, The Couple, and Be Happy.

Arnaud writes in the introduction, "My own experience – that of a man who has entered the secrets of hundreds of human hearts – has shown me that the profound frustration of my fellow man and woman, be it latent or manifest, springs primarily from failure in love and sex.

It is the simplicity of a successful life as a couple which, above all, makes for a successful life. But such success must be won. The talks which comprise this book can help the individual who wants to be happy. ‘Sex’ implies the genital organs and the erotic zones, but it especially concerns a total human being – body, head and heart – a human being destined to receive, to give, and to transcend all dualities."

Jump into Life

The Jump Into Life

Moving Beyond Fear

The subtitle of this book is "Moving Beyond Fear", and that is exactly what The Jump Into Life is about. Filled with teaching that represents the deepest truths of tantrayana, and at the same time is simple and practical, this is truly a book for anyone interested in spiritual life. Some of the chapter titles are: Structuring An Inner Life, The Relief of Suffering, The Positive Approach, and Happiness, Gratitude and Love.

Dr. Richard Moss writes in the forward, "As one reads the Jump Into Life, the fineness of the author breathes between the words like a sure but gentle nectar. One senses a prayer of compassion for the real suffering of life, and gratitude for the wonder of life. There is love in these words and precious and timeless wisdom. In the West in particular, there are few whom we can call spiritual elders, especially those who have taken the unique point of view and wisdom of the East and embodied it authentically and relevantly in a Western life and teaching. Arnaud Desjardins is such a person."
