He has also been publishing the bi-annual ‘Know Thyself’ magazine since 1995 and writes inspiring articles in local papers. His books have been very successful and some of them had to be reprinted more than once. Two of his very successful books ‘Man, God and the Universe’ and ‘Sex, Breaking the Taboo’ have been translated into French and published in France by Editions ALTESS for the French-speaking market.
