Author bio

On March 5, 2008, my life changed forever as I had my very first glimpse of God. On this day of Shivratri (the day of special worship of Lord Shiva), it was snowing all morning, so my husband, Amit, decided to work from home.


“Amit was in his office all morning, and then finally he walked downstairs and into the kitchen. He grabbed a Diet Coke from our fridge and when he turned around to look at me, something extraordinary happened: I saw a glimpse of Lord Shiva in Amit. It was as though I were seeing him for the very first time in my life. The glimpse was timeless and eternal, although in our sense of time, it was likely just a few seconds. Complete stillness and calmness surrounded me, and I had forgotten where I was or what I was doing. I didn’t have anywhere to go or anything to do after that encounter. I felt like I could just live in that bliss for days, months, and years, and that’s exactly what I’ve been doing.” – Taste of Heaven


I knew I was being asked to share my beautiful spiritual experiences with the world.

TASTE OF HEAVEN: AN AWAKENING TO DIVINE LOVE is the chronicle of a married woman’s journey into spirituality, beginning after the birth of her second child. Having searched her entire life for truth, love, and God, she finds them all at once when she experiences a glimpse of Lord Shiva in her husband on Shivratri, the day of special worship of Lord Shiva.

Having witnessed that God lives in her husband and learning that He also lives in all others, including herself, she can feel the pain of others as her own and looks at another as her own self, an expression of divinity disguised in a material form.

Understanding that she was asleep all her life until that moment, she has been awakened to divine love, a type of love she could never have imagined or dreamt of. This love has made her whole and complete, transforming her former childhood fear of God into love―divine love.


FROM FEAR TO LOVE: A SHIFT IN PERCEPTION tells the story of the author’s healing of deep-rooted childhood fears that kept her emotionally imprisoned for many years. She learns how the quality of her thoughts, positive and negative, affects her emotions and experiences in life.

She discovers that by consciously choosing her thoughts, she can create the life of her dreams and at the same time heal from the paralyzing fears that had become embedded in her subconscious mind. She aims to inspire those who are held captive by their fears to taste the liberation and freedom of forgiveness, universal love, and self-love.
