Within this extraordinary memoir, Radhanath Swami weaves a colorful tapestry of adventure, mysticism, and love. Readers follow Richard Slavin from the suburbs of Chicago to the caves of the Himalayas as he transforms from young seeker to renowned spiritual guide. The Journey Home is an intimate account of the steps to self awareness and a penetrating glimpse into the heart of mystic traditions and the challenges that all souls must face on the road to inner harmony and a union with the Divine. 

Through near-death encounters, apprenticeships with advanced yogis, and years of travel along the pilgrim’s path, Radhanath Swami eventually reaches the inner sanctum of India’s mystic culture and finds the love he has been seeking. It is a tale told with rare candor, immersing the reader in a journey that is at once engaging, humorous, and heartwarming.

About the Author

Radhanath Swami was born in Chicago in 1950. At age nineteen, he traveled overland from London to India, where he lived in Himalayan caves, learned yoga from revered masters, and eventually became a world-renowned spiritual leader in his own right. He is a New York Times best-selling author, and his books have been translated into over twenty languages and sold in over forty countries worldwide. Radhanath Swami presently travels in Asia, Europe, and America teaching devotional wisdom but can often be found with his community in Mumbai, where he works tirelessly to help develop communities, food distribution initiatives, missionary hospitals, schools, ashrams, emergency relief programs, and eco-friendly farms.

I bought this book so that I could read about Radhanath's involvement with the murder of Sulochana. Sadly, this book does not cover these events. I served with Radhanath in New Vrindaban. He loved to talk about himself and his adventures in India. I see that has not changed.

This is an amazing story. It literally takes my breath away. Nice to read about somebody's personal experience rather than some fiction. This almost anbelievable story opened a new door in my heart, made me look at the world from a different perspective. I am planning to read it again. Highly recommend for everyone.

This is one of the most amazing, adventurous and insightful book that I have read. The author shares the profound lessons that he has learnt from each of his experiences. Even though it is such an extraordinary journey, the humility with which it is presented makes it even more appreciable. The author does not hold back anything while describing negative or undesirable experiences that he goes through. His determination to pursue his goal is quite remarkable. Anyone interested in spirituality, adventure, eastern religions or mystic India should definitely read this Journey.
