Harish Johari (1934-1999) authored many books that bring Eastern spiritual traditions to Western audiences. Vatsala Sperling, a native of India, is a clinical microbiologist and she learned these stories at her mother's feet. She is the coauthor of A Marriage Made in Heaven and How Ganesh Got His Elephant Head and lives in Vermont with her husband and son. Pieter Weltevrede began his artistic studies with Harish Johari in 1977 and also studied with Shri Chandra Bal. He lives in Holland with his wife and two children and travels to India annually.

a great resource for elementary school teachers. . ."-- "Rachel
Fischer Gladson, Altar Magazine, July 2005"
