TENDER AS A FLOWER, HARD AS A THUNDERBOLT – WORDS OF TRUTH AND LOVE,
SVAMI SADANANDA DASA, 2015.
This book is a compilation of extracts from different texts of Svami Sadananda Dasa. Some of the texts are from originals in English, but the great majority are written in German.
The title of the book is a quotation from Caitanya-Caritamrita 2.7.71 and describes the character of the true guru, the one who is truly existing, the prema-bhakta.
Svami Sadananda Dasa (Ernst Georg Schulze) appeared in the world in Germany in 1908.
In the early 1930s he became a disciple of Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati who before some of his native disciples once said, “You, Sadananda, and I, we have always been together.”
