Synopsis: In many ways, Prema Baba Swamiji was a typical New Age seeker. He explored meditation and Indian philosophy, made the obligatory visits to ashrams in India, took a degree in chiropractic medicine, and studied hypnotherapy. He even co-wrote an alternative health book with his wife.

However, in 1997, at the age of 42, his life took a radical turn. He was summoned to India by his teacher and encountered the "deathless avatar" Babaji, and was initiated into one of the oldest monastic traditions, The Order of the Swamis, in a remote temple in the South of India.

The Initiation relates the author's extraordinary encounters, where saints and deities appear and offer guidance, and sacred objects materialize from thin air. It is a spiritual adventure story that includes encounters with an Indian rabbi, levitating gurus, disappearing taxi drivers, and psychedelic (without the use of chemicals) mystical experiences. It is also the story of one man's quest for answers to the "big" questions: Who am I? Where do I fit in the universe? How can my life have meaning? How can I touch the infinite?

The Initiation is a journey of self-discovery, allowing abundant possibilities. With the power to open minds, Swamiji's words allow a spiritual awakening, and an affirmation of identity. A true story capturing one man's profound experience in India, The Initiation bears a timeless, transformational message.

About the Author: Prema Baba Swamiji was born in 1955, and raised in the American Southwest. He has degrees in computer science, education, and chiropractic medicine. He is married to Marilyn Diamond (co-author of Fit for Life) and is the co-author, with Diamond, of Fitonics. The couple resides in Miami Beach, Florida.
