Reading this book is a way of reducing the gap between immortal yogis and yourself! This book is very inspiring both as spiritual guidelines and as practical wisdom for everyday life. It made me feel the urge to follow these simple examples to come closer to the spiritual reality. A good contribution to the litterature on religion and new-age and also making the gap between these two smaller. If you feel attracted to it at this stage, don't doubt a second more!

Very nice to read stuff about some of the living immortals but the advice given in this book is only partially their teachings with a lot of added material by Orr himself - a bit ego minded as it is viewed as a goal of live (as Maharishi would say, who wants it?). Most of the immortal masters keeping their body alive for a long time seem to have a couple of things in common - not eating, sungazing and living without ego. Tat Wale Baba, Devraha Baba and Brahmarishi are well documented people and people like Prahlad Jani show the possibility of living without food nor water. So if you are really feeling a gravitational pull, go visit the masters yourself. Babaji has a new body visited by some yogis already, among other Vishwananda who talks about his meetings with him and people like Brahmarishi (north of Madurai - south India) and Bartrihari south of New Delhi give you a real experience.
