Inter-cultural, inter-religious and international marriages are a good thing that strengthen human society and brings unity in the world. One needs to be patient and tolerant. Going through divorce and remarriage must not become a burden on the mind and must be an easy task not requiring psychologists and family and legal counselors. “The Marrying Monk” by Dadajii Vimalananda follows a monk, the celibate who marries not once, twice or thrice but four times. He experiences all the trials and tribulations and conflicts of any marriage and lives the life of an ordinary house holder raising and educating and bringing up four children, unaffected by all of the above experiences and teaches in detail how anyone can do the same and live a joyful, peaceful, healthy and harmonious life without being a monk and a celibate.

Many Indian Gurus and teachers are behind bars of prisons now as they have committed lewd sexual acts against some minors and adults who are their disciples and students. They range in age from 30-75 yrs old. Vimalananda’s approach to sexuality as described in this book and in his personal life eliminates these lewd activities by the leaders of Yoga around the globe. His teaching is that sex is a joyful and peaceful and happy act and not a sinful act and that, done properly, could lead one to feel spiritual ecstasy and bliss. This is a major problem with Gurus of the world now. They should enter into married life now before they end up behind bars. Not everyone can become a celibate.

Vimanlananda teaches easy to understand Yoga practices and provides proper guidance and understanding of the same. One can go through many stages and unusual experiences, conflicts and actions in life and all through these spheres maintain that equipoise. The author’s his life style is a great living personal example of how one can go through so much of busy life and be content and feel harmony and peace . He is so actively involved in so many community and religious activities and still has time to do his self realization practices.

About the Author
Dada means brother and Vimalananda means brother in bliss. Known as “Dada” to those that know and love him, author Dadajii Vimalananda has chosen the unique life of being both a monk and a “householder”. He spent his first 25 years as a monk living a life of poverty and chastity. His only concern was to serve others no matter the personal sacrifice it meant. He did so for his Guru Shrii Shrii Anandamurtii, Founder of Ananda Marga. He has spent many years as a missionary both in the Philippines and then in America. Once here, his heart began to open to serving others as a married householder. He saw the problems that America was having in coping with material life and attempting to find peace and joy while raising a family, earning a living and still seeking inner peace within. Dada felt he could best understand this challenge and show how a human being could accomplish living among the regular world, serve ones community, raise a family and still find balance within.
