This book explores the lives of eight Himalayan sages who held the distilled wisdom and power of the world's spiritual traditions. These sages belonged to a universal tradition that emphasizes the direct experience of truth, one not limited by bounds of religion, nationality, geography, era, or race.
Pandit Tigunait skillfully weaves the teachings of the sages into a fabric of absorbing and delightful stories, so that the reader easily understands what might, in another context, look like formidable philosophy. In addition, he makes it practical, down-to-earth, and applicable to the conditions of modern life. He effortlessly renders the ancient teachings for contemporary students.
A yogi who came of age in the traditional culture of India and studied widely with a number of teachers, he has been living and teaching in the United States for almost two decades.
