Everything you need to know…and then some, about placing an ad in Lotus Guide and being part of a “Community Within A Community” that has become the heart & soul of an expanding awareness.

* We have a segment on TV that airs every 3 weeks in 7 Northern CA counties called “Rahasya Uncensored.” Our goal is to reach many more readers for the Lotus Guide and also interview our advertisers. This means that we are the only magazine in the Northern CA area that has a magazine, You Tube Channel, a TV show and radio show called “Spiritual Activist.”

Take a few moments and look over what we offer because it’s much more than just the ad in our magazine which is plenty in itself. But we’ve learned over the years to keep our advertisers, which we do, we need to offer them editorial space, access to our Community Email that reaches over 9,000 residents, and more.  Whenever you spend hard earned money on advertising you really need to look everything over to make an informed decision so look this over and if you have any questions feel free to contact us.

We know you have a busy schedule so we are sending you the bare minimum of what we can do for you and your business.  Please look this over and contact us so we can get you into the next issue. Northern California has come to depend on our magazine to bring them some of the latest information on health and the world around them. Let’s face it…normal media sources simply are not doing their job, so we will.

In today’s world it is important for you to spend your advertising dollars wisely; we know this, which is one of the many reasons we are still in business after 13 Years, and still growing.

This is an important decision for you to make so check out a few of our Testimonies here on the website, and give us a call to see how inexpensive and easy it is to place an ad in the Lotus Guide and reach 1,000’s of residents who are avid readers of the Lotus Guide Magazine. Half of the advertisers who were in our first few issues 13 years ago are still with us so that says it all.

Thank You! Rahasya & Dhara, Publishers of Lotus Guide
