Jeffrey Armstrong

If you tuned in to the show, you will know that I wasn't there this week, and have had a lot of work not related to the show to deal with, so live photos or video this week, I'm afraid.

Our guest this week for our Valentine's Day special was mystical love poet, Jeffrey Armstrong.

Jeffrey, also known as Kavindra, has been writing poetry since he was 13 and to date he has a collection of over 1,400 poems on various subjects in many different styles. These particular poems literally “drop down” within a few minutes… he hardly can write as fast as they come out. They require no editing other than spelling and are truly a gift from the Divine!

Mystical poetry seeks to reproduce very subtle states of spiritual perception. In India, the Bhakti and Tantric schools of mystical poetry speak in a voice that longs for intimacy with the Divine Beloved. They attempt to reveal the emotions exchanged in the relationship between the soul and the Eternal Lover or Beloved God.

As an initiate of those ancient teachings, Kavindra embodies and is able to pass on the sublime fruits of those sacred traditions. This initiates the listener directly into the ecstatic emotional states of spiritual bliss. His poems are literally windows into the Divine realm that are revealed to him during profound states of meditation.

Jeffrey is also a sought-after motivational speaker.
