When Illness Takes Hold: Hopeful Words for Sadhakas explores the challenges and opportunities we face when dealing with illness (or losses and other obstacles) while practicing bhakti.
The book has three essays exploring the authors’ personal experiences and the spiritual solutions they found; a question and answer section; and a collection of quotes from our acaryas that are meditations for coping with illness.
Pranada dasi and Arcana-siddhi dasi, both disciples of Srila Prabhupada, have each suffered from chronic illness for several decades. Here they combine the wisdom garnered from their experiences in a fairly comprehensive, and loving, treatment of the subject.
Arcana-siddhi is a Licensed Clinical Social Work who has been counseling devotees for nearly thirty years. Her husband of thirty-two years, Karnamrta das, recently passed away after a five-year battle with cancer.
Devotees around the globe submitted questions for their Question-and-Answer section.
The authors deal with the following questions and many more:
