“An extremely captivating compilation of gifts delivered in anecdotal style. Tara brings to life these familiar and not so familiar stories from the ancient epics in a manner that causes the reader to visually recreate them with clarity as the words and graphics pop from these pages.
"My Blue Prabhu is an offering for children, philosophers, and storytellers alike, all thinking it’s designed just for them. Without initially recognizing it, the stories speak to the ‘child’ in each of us that yearns for something more, even if it’s just expression. The characters classically allow us to confront and reflect on the attributes of surrender, selflessness, faith, our unleashed potential, and so much more.
"The author’s reflections after each chapter provoke a deeper thinking, referencing ancient and timeless ‘verses’, adding depth to this well-crafted offering.
"I encourage you to reflect in silence after each chapter, and by the time you get to the last words, I’m sure you’ll realize that My Blue Prabhu is an insight into a process of self-discovery.”

"This has been a sacred opportunity to further revel in our Lord’s Leelas, a rare and privileged opportunity that brought many hours of intense happiness to me.
"Tara Ji's SEWA to our Lord, with such devotion and dedication will bring comfort and clarity to millions. Her beautiful style of presenting teachings of our Shastras is unique with the flow of figurative and straightforward language which has appealed to my soul. The topics chosen have great lessons for all walking on the Spiritual Path. This is the way, in my humble opinion, to impart knowledge which is crowned so beautifully in her summaries.
"May her efforts fill the hearts and souls of millions everywhere, and may this book, My Blue Prabhu, find a place in the homes of seekers throughout the world. This is my sincere prayer.”

"The theme of My Blue Prabhu is very lovely, with a wise selection. The structure is beautiful, charming, and appealing. All persons of all strata of society can understand it easily. All themes were described in a very noble and traditional style, which will touch the hearts and minds of all types of people.
"The Dhyanam section at the end of each chapter is a teaching and lesson of our holy scriptures.
"I pray that the author will continue to write this type of descriptive stories from the Ramayan, Mahabharata, Srimad Bhagwat Maha Puran, and all other holy books."

"Tara Bridgelal-Maharaj's My Blue Prabhu has absolutely found its way into our hearts, and as the name suggests, has successfully personalized our Prabhu ji to my Prabhu. Her use of simple yet captivating images is quite a personal touch for the kids and has worked wonders in grabbing their attention.
"It is clear that although this work is meant to enlighten the younger generations of the many Puranic tales, the manner in which it is presented, through the eyes of the author, has proven to be very enlightening to those of the more advanced ages as well!
"Of the many tools the writer has employed in her work, I'm particularly impressed, yet humbled by the Dhyanam at the end of each story. It is as if she seeks to remind us that the Lord is the source of all knowledge on each pathway of life and that one needs not consider oneself too young to receive the streams of such knowledge, as is evident from this masterpiece, My Blue Prabhu.
"Every household should have a copy of this book. It serves a greater purpose of reminding us of God, the very Dharma of us all, the innermost supreme commonality amongst us all. And through the simple, everyday messages shining in the stories, we are all taken through a journey of self-reflection and, ultimately, a clarion call to rise and seek our greater purpose.
"I encourage you all to grab your copy now."
