Space, Light, and Harmony is an adventure in design, building, and living. It is the true story of the evolution of a home- from planning to interior decorating that serves as a powerful metaphor for personal development. Years ago, Swami Kriyananda withdrew to the woods in a personal search for clarity. In designing his home, he felt that it must reflect this inner search.
In the process of building, the author explores practical topics such as what a home should express, architectural choices, interior design, and how to select art for your home, among many others. He considers the deeper principles behind these choices, including the importance of myth, the meaning of friendship, and the need to find balance in our lives.
Swami Kriyananada, a world-renowned author, lecturer, and composer, shares this story with humor and deep insight. You will find in his story valuable lessons for your own life journey.
This book is charming-rich with humor, humanity, and valuable life lessons.
