Editorial Reviews

Triana J. Elan
This epic collection of thoughts and experiences gathered from 45 years of traveling with Himalayan sages takes the reader to the heights and depths of the greatest quest there is. Swami Rama's honesty and humor surface with rhythmic regularity, encouraging the reader to think deeply and to drink from the pool of the sacred. What this book is, is exactly what it is not. It is not a chapter book filled with stepwise guidance. It is not a book of teachings, per se. It is not a sacred text in the way one would expect. Yet it is all of these and more much more. It is a quiet visit with a good friend around a campfire. It is the gentle, compassionate prodding of a magnificent spirit asking you who you really are. It is the stern, frowning master who knows you've been trying to fool yourself and behaving stupidly. Every page is an adventure, every story is unique, and nothing follows a linear pattern. This beautifully written book is about freedom in its ultimate sense, highly recommended for its ephemeral wisdom and endless depth.
Napra Review
Judith Benn Hurley
Buy this book for yourself. Each page is filled with joy and cheer. What I like best us that Swami Rama's message does not require us to transform ourselves, it teaches that we are already perfect.
—Judith Benn Hurley, author of The Good Herb, Savoring the Day, and Healing Secrets of the Seasons
New Age Book Review
A complete and practical guide to the foundations of the spiritual journey ... The vividness of the stories is absorbing, allowing them to be read over and over again.

    if you are on a journey of light,this book is a must read

    I was impressed. With how it was wrote. Once he got into the real learning and teaching of the Masters, the wisdom would be good for all to read, in the book the Masters don't judge, they only try to help people understand the powers of the universe, and how to awaken what is in themselves.

    Rama is

    no longer alive to the best of my knowledge. I heard that he killed himself. In my opinion, he was a swami to a quasi-Hindu CULT. Beware! If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

    Memoirs of a Narcissist

    The book starts with an endless description of landscape. The book then starts teaching life lessons in little stories. I was very disturbed by some of the lessons and the attitude about family life, women and about contributing to society. I hope readers approach the philosophy with open minded skepticism.

    Excellent biography

    I love learning about other people and their lives. In this case I learned about another culture and spirtual beliefs. I found out by reading this book, that I actually practice many of the virtues that were outlined. I hope you like this as much as as I did.

    Kind of boring

    I couldn't finish this book. I wanted to be really inspired by it but it just didn't happen. It was interesting to learn how austere the life of a swami is....
