A vivid journey back to the time of Krishna, his holy city, and the Mahabharata War

Transporting us back five thousand years to the time of Krishnavatara, the age in which Krishna lived, Vanamali leads us on a journey alongside Lord Krishna as he reigns over the ancient port city of Dwaraka and helps the Pandavas through the Mahabharata War. Recounting ecstatic celebrations, Krishna's love for his wives and sons, and events surrounding the epic war, the author stresses Krishna's ability to contain all opposites and stand above duality like a lotus leaf floating on a running stream. Offering potent spiritual lessons throughout her story, she shows how the truly spiritual individual is able to unreservedly accept all dimensions of life and rise above all dualities of existence, war and peace, love and hate, sex and abstinence, action and meditation. She also provides a historical timeline for the Mahabharata War and the sinking of Krishna's city beneath the sea--3126 BCE and 3090 BCE, respectively--and shows how the Mahabharata War occurred under circumstances quite similar to those of the present day, both politically and astrologically.

Through her vivid tale and her personal connection with Krishna across many lifetimes, Vanamali shows how the magic and mystery of Krishna's ancient holy city live on through his spiritual teachings.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Vanamali transports the reader to Lord Krishna's heavenly kingdom of Dwaraka. Her devotion invites the reader to make a leap in consciousness and to join her on an ecstatic pilgrimage to the heart of Mother India's legendary wisdom." * Arvind Bruce Burger, author of Esoteric Anatomy: The Body as Consciousness *
"In the Lost City of Sri Krishna is an enthralling journey from India's leading female mystic. Vanamali's intricate accounts of higher Vedic civilizations and culture will entertain and satisfy not only students of yoga but all those interested in the secrets of India, which only adept mystics can reveal." * Nischala Cryer, author of The Four Stages of Yoga and cofounder of Ananda University *
"This inspired book by Vanamali not only brings to life the events at the time when Sri Krishna ruled over Dwaraka but also imparts profound wisdom and uplifts spiritually. It lovingly connects us to one of the main pillars of India's great tradition, Sri Krishna." * Maria Wirth, writer/researcher of India's heritage and spiritual traditions *
"Which of us has not imagined ourself as a character in His great play? In In the Lost City of Sri Krishna the author envisions herself as a direct witness to Lord Krishna's sojourn in Dwaraka. In doing so she masterfully transports the reader into that time, giving each of us a personal glimpse of what it may have been like to walk beside Him." * Nitya Menon, LL.M., diplomat and international lawyer *
"Using data from archeological and astronomical studies as well as maritime explorations, Vanamali builds a strong case that Lord Krishna and his life-narrative are not simply a part of Indian mythology, but they constitute an indisputable part of India's rich and varied history. Bravo." * Vatsala Sperling, MS, PhD, PDHom, CCH, RSHom, author of Arjuna *
