    Deep Insights for a sincere searcher

    The author writes from his heart with sincerity, clarity and an open yet skeptical mind that truly wishes to find something to believe in. While the fundamental reasons for his search for spiritual peace are not elaborated, it seems to be driven from deep inner pain and hurt. The book describes the author's persistent search across India in the 1930s. He visits teachers, yogis and fakirs and spiritual masters from across India, including Meher Baba, Shankaracharya, the Radha Soami group, a disciple of Ramakrishna, and others. His trip finally leads him to the sage of Arunachalam, and his description of the transformation of his inner being in the silent sage's presence is one of the finest expressions of the state of transcending normal consciousness.
