Living with the Himalayan Masters: Swami Rama
Living with the Himalayan Masters recounts the spiritual journey of a man who himself became a spiritual guide to thousands of people across the world. The author recounts his various experiences from childhood onwards as he sought spiritual enlightenment.
The author is very candid in his account of his efforts to learn from the various people he encountered. He talks not just about the great masters but also the spurious ones, the so-called mystics who just indulged in the practice of magic tricks and other such gimmicks to attract innocent seekers.
By letting the readers learn about his own mistakes and gullibility, the author makes a connection as the readers feel that he is just like one of them, prone to the same misconceptions, as themselves. This familiarity helps in drawing them deeper into his story when the author does discuss the true spiritual leaders.
Living With The Himalayan Masters also shows how the author, at the behest of his own master, learnt and practiced several different schools of yoga and spiritualism. This led him to travel across the Himalayas, indulging in different yogic practices and learning from different gurus.
