My name is Tony Butcher. My life established passion for Maharishi’s techniques of Transcendental Meditation and Yogic Flying paved the way to an unexpected further dimension in my life, which was far beyond my wildest dreams. This happened when an unexpected inner message urged me to accompany a friend, who was taking a party of people to the 2001 Kumbha Mela in India.

I had no idea why- just that I had to go. On my first day in Allahabad I had a wonderful experience with the Goddess Durga, who I hadn’t even heard of until afterwards. It wasn’t until I later learned that Maharishi had arranged all this, even though I had never met him personally.

It was the goddess who gave me the incentive to worship her- she made a book called ‘Durga Puja for Beginners’ appear magically upon my computer screen. When the book arrived, She said ‘go to the closing prayers and learn the first five verses and you will learn quite a bit about me’. I put the book in my pocket and drove off to my allotment to gain some proficiency whilst I did some digging.

This was my first introduction to learning how to worship the goddess and by so doing enhanced the daily communication between us. With her help and inspiration, I have published the following four e-book titles:

Yoga Consciousness in the Ancient Mystery Religions
A Walk in the Park
A trip beyond Imagination
The Life of a London Yogi

The Goddess Durga Chooses Kindle!

My trips to India started off as a personal diary for my wife.  I had no thoughts of trying to publish it because my experiences there were about the opposite of what most people think in the UK.

 

The goddess had other ideas.  She always sends me quiet internal messages about what she wants  me to do each day.  In  March 2014 it was to have the book of these three trips published.  I thought that no publisher would believe it, so I thought about self-publishing with a firm in the USA . However, being a messenger I always follow what she wants and over-rule my own ideas on the subject.   


The goddess  followed up by making the Kindle publishing site appear upon my screen so I responded by sending a letter to the publisher. One month went by followed by two further weeks.  This seemed ample confirmation that I was right- no editor in his right mind would believe it!    Thus I  contacted a firm in the USA and signed a contract to have it published there.

A Trip Beyond Imagination
was the only way I could describe my experiences in India. I never thought that the longhand diary, written for my wife would appear in a book because I thought that no publisher would believe it could be true. It was there that I had my first experience of the goddess Durga, who I never heard of. It seems that she chose me to tell others that the wonderful life-changing experiences I enjoy are not just for me- they are possible for everyone.

A Walk in the Park
“A Walk in the Park” is the sum total of Tony Butcher's poetry, from the first piece of nonsense verse he wrote, to long, spiritual poems much later in his career. He claims that these days he only writes when inspiration comes “hot from the gods”. He reckons that all his best stuff has come that way and anything out of his own head tends to be “clever rubbish” by comparison.
