A New Book by Bhakti Dhira Damodara Swami 'Spiritual Connection: Understanding the Dynamics of Guru-disciple Relationship' discusses the following important topics: 

Who is a Guru?

Why do I need a Living Guru?

Why am I not satisfied in my relationship with my Guru?

How to internalize the sacred Guru-disciple relationship?

How to be a Progressive Disciple? 

“Spiritual Connection” answers the above and many more questions with much depth and clarity. Presented in a very simple and lucid manner, this book is a collection of various case-studies taken from Vedic literatures such as Srimad-bhagavatam, Caitanya-caritamrita, Mahabharata and Ramayana. Herein, the subject of Guru-disciple relationship is explored, explained and churned into valuable lessons to help all the levels of spiritual seekers— from novice and seasoned—to have their spiritual connection established, enhanced or rejuvenated.
