This is without a doubt the best and most controversial book to focus on "Holy Men" of India and Nepal! I lived in India for nine years and traveled with Hindu "Holy Men" all over that country as well as Nepal."Holy Men" are not always Holy! This book confirm that with breath taking photographs of hundreds of Hindu and Buddhist pilgrim practitioners and sites from the Ganges River in India to high altitudes of Nepal's Himalayan Mountains. The author's narrative depicts his adventure to locate hidden metaphysical Hindu and Buddhist Temples where water, air, and fire converge naturally in pools of water high in the Himalayans and the people he encounters along the way. It's an extraordinary tale that features notes on Hindu Law, with discussions and interactions with Hindu Holy "Sadhus." This book's stunning pictures act as a "story board" which reinforces and interacts with the text adventure.
