    You can order any of Wayne’s books, as well as CD’s and DVD’s of his talks, in our SHOP. The teaching, as it happens through Wayne, is pure Advaita (non-duality), uniquely presented in an uncompromising, sometimes humorous way, without religious dogma or new age veneer. Aparokshanubhuti is the one of such important prakriya granthas on Advaita Vedanta written by Adi Sankara. It contains verses or slokas. The central theme of the book is the identity of the individual self with the Universal Self.
