New book, ‘In a Word’ by Sofyan Brugger

The WSA asked Sofyan Brugger to share his approach to translating Bapak’s talks and suggested he select some of his translations for a special edition that would encourage more people to read the talks and be especially appealing to the youth.  In choosing which talks to include, Sofyan asked input from his own children and grandchildren. The book includes a thoughtful sampling of Bapak’s Talks on different topics, at different times, and in different places. The beginning of the book, ‘In a Word’ is beautiful and important.  At the back Sofyan offers his approach to translating Bapak’s words and an in-depth look at some of the religious terms Bapak frequently uses.  
The WSA published this book in time for the World Congress in Germany.  If you missed buying Bapak Subuh Yang Mulia, Selected Talks, translated by Sofyan Brugger, and would like to,  please contact  The cost is $12 plus postage.  Here is a quote to Kailani from Muchtar Saltzmann
“Sofyan chose very valuable Talks from Bapak that we all need to be aware of, and your Dad’s book exudes deep respect and gratefulness to Bapak.  We call it love for Bapak, God’s Servant.  It is a jewel of a book.  The best Subud book I have read so far…..I will tell everybody I know to buy this treasure.  A true ‘must read’ for all.”  –Muchtar Salzmann
