Author Notes

In 1981, American-born Harold Klemp became the spiritual leader of Eckankar. Known as a pioneer of today's focus on "everyday spirituality," he speaks at Eckankar seminars around the world. From North America and Europe to Australia and the Pacific Rim, he shares the timeless truth of Eckankar. His teachings uplift all. They help people recognize the power of their own intimate experiences with God. He writes extensively, adding new titles to his more than thirty published works to date.
