About this Item

207 pages with black & white illustrations. Whilst traveling in India in 1996 the author saw an elderly Western man seated outside the gates of the Ramana Mahashi ashram. The man was clothed in the traditional garb of a Hindu sadhu - one who has renounced the world - and was deeply engrossed in meditation. What had originally drawn this Westerner to India? What kept him here? Why had he chosen such an austere life? This book contains interviews with twelve memorable seekers, both men and women, together with the author's insights into India's contemporary spiritual scene. Paperbound, a new book. 8vo.
