On this page, the International Nath Order will be making available
laser-printer-ready booklets of Shri Gurudev Mahendranath's works.
Just print on a duplexing laser-printer (or manually duplex) on
8 1/2 x 11 inch paper, fold, staple - and voila!
(Printing instructions can be found at the bottom of this page.)
These booklets are intended for personal use and study. Also,
Zonules of the International Nath Order may print them for distribution
to interested aspirants and may also make them available through their
local area bookstores. (Note: For local bookstore distribution, Zonules
should produce their own cover design and include Zonule contact information
inside the back cover.)
This TreeBook of Shri Gurudev Mahendranath's poetry contains 27 of his poems.
sanatana dharma gita
In the Sanatana Dharma Gita, in 147 shlokas or verses, the
Natha and Nathess are presented with the essence of Indian spiritual
life and higher yoga. Also included in this TreeBook are
Dedication into Our Cosmic Wonderland,
Hymn to Lord Shiva, and
The Rite of the Naked Fire.
The main document of the Nathas is the three manuscripts combined with the
title of Twilight Yoga, a term which embodies all of Shri Gurudev
Mahendranath's personal teachings and expressed as a yoga. Twilight Yoga
contains the manuscripts of
Ecstasy, Equipoise, and Eternity;
The Magnum Opus; and
Esoterikos Orgia Mysterion.
The first manuscript contains all that is known and reliable of the ancient
Nath tradition and the life of Shri Dattatreya, and the four key words to a
way of life which has been preserved and remembered for several thousand years.
Nath Tantra consists of three manuscripts detailing the essence
of Nath and Kaula Tantra. Nath Tantra contains the manuscripts of
The Magick Path of Tantra;
Levogyrate Tantra; and
The Tantra of Blowing the Mind.

These are PostScript files, the most common file format for printable files.
For some reason, Microsoft does not include an application which can print
PostScript files with Windows! Therefore, if you are running Windows, you
will need to download and install PostScript support and a PostScript viewer
in order to print these TreeBooks.
Linux or Unix - If you have a duplexing printer, all you need to do
is enter `lpr <filename>' at the command line. Another method is to open
the file using Ghostview (gv). If you have a non-duplexing printer,
you will have to use Ghostview to select and print first the even
pages, turn the paper, then print the odd pages.
Apple MacIntosh - If you have a duplexing printer, just drag the file
icon onto the printer icon. If you have a non-duplexing printer, download and
install MacGSView, then follow the instructions in below in the second paragraph under Microsoft Windows.
Microsoft Windows - If you are using one of Microsoft's Windows
operating systems, then you'll need a set of programs called
Ghostscript and Ghostview.
These programs allow you to view and/or print Postscript files in Windows.
First, go the the page titled Obtaining AFPL Ghostscript 8.00. Scroll down to the
Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000 or XP heading, and download the
self-extracting EXE files for AFPL Ghostscript (5.8MB) and GSview (1.2MB).
Once these are installed, you should be able to double-click on a TreeBook,
and it will open in GSview. If you have a duplexing (double-sided) printer,
just print the file. Otherwise, select "Custom" under "Pages to Print",
then select the "Even" pages, and print. Follow the instructions which came
with your printer to manually duplex by turning the pages over (usually
the short way) and reloading them into the input hopper. Then repeat the
"Custom" printing, this time selecting the "Odd" pages.
