This is the front cover of the first edition of my book, later entitled 'Source of the Dream'. However, at that time the title was 'The Source of Dream'.
It was printed at Brindavan Printers in Bangalore, where the Sanathana Sarathi artwork was also printed at that time. It was issued in 10,000 copies, which were given to the Sathya Sai Book and Publications Trust, where it was sold [mostly under the counter to Suri's cronies] at the rate of Rs. 50/- per copy - and since journalists found that the Convener, Mr. N. Suri had kept no accounts but had pocketed the money himself (piles of cash being found in his room during the post-murder investigations at the ashram). This edition suffered from incompetant technical staff (computer workers and printers), all of which errors were corrected in the 1998 Samuel Weiser edition.
Here are the front and rear covers of the Portuguese edition of my book from 2002, for which Samuel Weiser Inc. owns the world rights (while I retain the copyright). Incidentally, I received no cash payment at all for this Portuguese edition, and the promise of 10% royalties (see below), has never been kept (the publisher being unaccountable in India), as is also the case with the Sai Towers publications (in at least two printings) of the book in English, for which I received a proportion of the US $50.- for which sum they sold it to Mr. Padmanabhan.
