About the Author:

Prabhushri Swami Amar Jyoti was born in 1928 in northwestern India, not far from the Indus River. A brilliant student and much loved by all, He left home a few months before college graduation and traveled to the border of Bengal where refugees from East Bengal (now Bangladesh) were pouring by the thousands into India each day. He headed the volunteer corps there for ten months until the refugees subsided, then moved to Calcutta. Visions began awakening in Him and soon He departed for the Himalayas where he spent 10 years in yogic meditation). A small cave at Gangotri, the temple village near the source of the Ganga River, was the place of His greatest spiritual disciplines, awakenings and Illumination. In 1958 He took Vidyut Sannyas initiation, a form of monasticism that is Self-initiated at the holy site of Badrinath and taking the name Swami Amar Jyoti (Swami Knower of the Self; Amar Jyoti Immortal Light) descended into the plains of India for His God-given mission. Reverently called Gurudeva, He founded Jyoti Ashram in Pune, India, in 1961 and then visited the United States, traveling unknown. In 1974 He founded Sacred Mountain Ashram in Boulder, CO, followed by Desert Ashram in Tucson, AZ, in 1978 under Truth Consciousness, a nonprofit organization that serves as a vehicle for His work in the USA. The spiritual awakening that Gurudeva reveals is the glorious destiny of mankind, freed from our limited identity of self. Lovingly and ceaselessly He continues to uplift and purify each of us for this awakening. His way is the ancient relationship of the Guru to the disciple, the candle lit from the burning flame of Truth. After four decades of guiding innumerable souls to higher consciousness, Gurudeva took Mahasamadhi on June 13, 2001 in Colorado. In 2002 a Samadhi Sthal in white marble was created for permanent consecration in Jyoti Ashram. Immortal Light: The Blissful Life and Wisdom of Swami Amar Jyoti, was published by Truth Consciousness in 2004.

Review:

Swami Amar Jyoti has achieved a striking originality in his expressed talent not just for telling a story but also by enlightening his readers at the same time as he heightens their curiosity and enthusiasm. For its sincerity, originality and philosophical clarity this book deserves to be read again and again. Don't miss it. --Yoga Journal

I just now finished reading [Spirit of Himalaya] and am still wrapped in its warm glow. It is a beautiful, inspiring treatise. --Ruth Montgomery, author of 21 books including The World to Come: The Guides Long-Awaited Predictions for the Dawning Age

A beautiful story and an easy, wonderful way to absorb great and powerful truths. Gives the feeling of quietness and reverence for a truly spiritual journey. --Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.)
