5.0 out of 5 stars Autobiography of a Yogi Part 2 !, 18 Mar. 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Holy Cow!: An Indian Adventure (Paperback)
This is a real rollar-coaster ride, thouroughly enjoyable from the word go. The trip to the Kumba Mela Festival is both horrific and hilarious at the same time. Also the description of Sai Baba had me in stitches...but dont get me wrong there is a lot of good honest spiritual truth in this work, and one feels as if one is actually there going along for the ride alongside her. I learnt more about India in the first three chapters of this book than I have from many others. The one major flaw is her incorrect quotation of the famous Maha Mantra, (the Hare Krishna Mantra) which you would have thought she would have at least got right in a book like this for authenticity's sake. Dont miss this book, it's sure to become a classic and who knows maybe in the future, a film also.

"I learnt more about India in the first three chapters of this book than I have from many others"
You should try going there instead of getting facile, incorrect facts from a stupid, wilfully ignorant book which encapsulates an idiots-eye view of the subcontinent and its many complex cultures. It is insulting to India, its people and anyone who loves the country. And indeed all readers with an IQ which exceeds that of a piece of cow dung.
