Product Description

"I will tell you how I grew up and how I was trained, about the great sages with whom I lived and what they taught me, not through lectures and books but through experiences," writes Sri Swami Rama in the opening pages of this timeless saga. These stories record his personal quest for truth and enlightenment. Inspiring, illuminating, entertaining, mystifying, and frequently humorous, they bring you face-to-face with the great Himalayan Masters, including: Mataji of Assam, a ninety-six-year-old sage who never slept; Gudari Baba, who taught Swami Rama the value of direct experience; Yogi Sri Aurobindo, who integrated meditation with action; Uria Baba, who teaches that every human being has a potential for healing; Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Nation.

This is one of the best books on spirituality I have ever read. The Swami explains in clear and lucid terms the timeless and inspiring teachings of the Himalayan sages. He gets straight to the heart of these teachings with simple and meaningful anecdotes and examples, sharing with us his own experiences. Many seekers will identify with the questions he raised, the answers to which he gives with amazing clarity, without any hint of mysticism.
If I was to name one book which has affected me most profoundly, it would be this one.

Format: Paperback
This book clearly gives true life story of Great student of Yoga and sincere followers of Yogic Philosophy. It depicts Swami Rama's day to day learning and life of true Sadhakas. It is inspiration for all of us to lead our life in more successful way by facing all stumbling blocks through Meditation and Sadhana.
It is impossible to explain the value of this book through mere words, so far I have presented this valuable book to whom so ever I respect most in my life. That is the best way I can show my respect to them.

Very enjoyable reading, couldn't put it down. It is written with humility; I did not learn until after reading it that Swami Rama was the yogi who was medically examined in the 1960's and found to have remarkable abilities. Not once does he mention his own achievement in his writing.

Spiritually fortifying, his words are full of wisdom and awareness.

This is very inspiring book! Easy to read, practical and the one you cannot put down until you are done.
Probably one of the best books on spirituality. It is life story of the yogi, full of knowledge. You might want to read more of his books after reeding this.
Swami Rama represents lineage of Himalayan masters and their tradition is based on Patanjali sutras. For some it might be important tradition is clearly separated from any religion.

This is one the best books i have ever read , Swami Rama must have been one of the greatest spiritual teaches that ever lived. This book gave me a new out look on finding God within . I have looked at many ways to find the path to enlightenment for 30 years and read lots of books on this subject , but Swami Rama way of teaching will help anyone to find their God within whatever their faith.

This book is brilliant. I read it as a teenager searching for wisdom 25 years ago, the messages are still, if not more relevant today for me. A fantastic easy read with many insightful stories
