About the Author

New York Times best-selling 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. His acclaimed memoir, The Journey Home, has 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 read the previous book by Radhanath Swami, which was The Journey home. It was fabulous! Now, after journey home, we are eager to take journey within along with Radhanath Swami. I am sure this is going to be another master piece from him.

Frankly, spirituality is an area I have been struggling to get a stranglehold with. There is obviously a ton of material strewn all over the print and electronic media. All this is likely to overwhelmingly confuse an inexperienced seeker let alone the casual onlooker. The word yoga is very easily albeit in an incomplete sense associated with psycho-physical well-being with the physical component given more importance. This book gives a very simplified yet comprehensive understanding of yoga in its true sense. The line between spirituality and sectarianism gets often blurred and the former is viewed as not being objective. The author has done a nice job in helping readers make clear demarcation between the two. The book is a hands-on account of the authors' own experiences and realizations that corroborate the teachings of the ancient tradition called Bhakti Yoga. Incidentally, this yoga is the re-unifying process of the true self the soul with the fountainhead of every thing (eternal love) and not a mechanical process of cranking up a great body. There is nothing esoteric about the explanations at the same time they are remarkable for their profundity. A treatise for someone seriously looking to make that leap forward into spiritual emancipation.

Radhanath Swami is a fabulously awesome author. I read his previous book, The Journey Home, twice. Never came across such writing in my entire span of a life of reading. Whatever he speaks is out of his own personal realizations. We can see harmony in his thoughts, words, and actions. I will soon be getting my copy of The Journey Within. The Journey Home is about his experiences as a young traveling spiritual seeker before he becomes a monk. And from what I have heard, The Journey Within is about his experiences after he becomes a monk. In this book, he is going to condense the precious nectar of his realizations as a world traveling monk, author, speaker, spiritual leader, and a social servant for over 40 years. Eagerly waiting for my copy.

Deeply satisfying and enthusing with positive energy! It was out-of-the-world experience to read his earlier book - "The Journey Home" almost a year back. And in this book, Radhanath Swami has given very essential teachings and principles to live a life full of divine experiences. He has presented it for all people regardless of their beliefs/religions. He explained very vividly the deep truths of sacred life and how to strive it through practical spiritual practices. Most amazing thing is that how meticulously he has put foundational principles through stories from all religious literatures like Vedas, Bible etc.
