Living with the Himalayan Masters is one of those rare books that contains the seeds of transformation within its pages—sowing those seeds in the heart of the reader, and creating the potential for true spiritual upliftment. These stories record Swami Rama’s personal quest for truth and enlightenment—inspiring, illuminating, entertaining, mystifying, and often droll and humorous.
This life-changing book will bring you face-to-face with some great twentieth-century masters, including Mataji of Assam, a ninety-six-year-old sage who never slept; Gudari Baba, who taught Swami Rama the value of direct experience; Yogi Sri Aurobindo, who integrated meditation with action; Uria Baba, who demonstrated that every human being has the potential for healing; and Mahatma Gandhi.
Read the humbling story of the man who founded the Himalayan Institute, and the great teachers who molded him into a Himalayan Master.
Sri Swami Rama, the founder of the Himalayan International Institute of Yoga Science and Philosophy, was raised in the Himalayan cave monasteries and ordained a monk in early childhood. He studied Western psychology, philosophy, and medicine in Europe and taught in Japan before coming to the United States in 1969. Here he founded the Himalayan Institute to create a bridge between the ancient teachings of the East and the modern scientific approaches of the West.
