This little book is a documentary compilation of primary autobiographical sources and reminiscences by disciples and friends from the life of the late “Flying-Swami”, Swami Vishnu-devananda 91927-1993) of India and Canada, Hindu monk and pilot. Swami Vishnu was one of the twentieth century’s most extraordinary activists for world peace and justice, non-violence, open borders, and the realization of the global citizenship of all humanity in what he called a “true world order” awaiting the spiritual maturation of our race.
Swami Vishnu was one of the most remarkable persons of our age on a number of fronts from the 1950’s in Canada and around the world until the time of his death in India in 1993. The book narrates vivid tales of his early life in India, anecdotes about the founding of his many Yoga centers.
