Autobiography of a Sadhu
Against the backdrop of arcane Indian tradition, this fast-paced, often self-effacing adventure story treats the reader to a rare insider’s perspective and a unique insight into the traditional path of Sanatan Dharma and India’s Hindu culture.
During the Allahabad Maha Kumbh Mela in 1971, on the banks of the River Ganga, Baba Rampuri became the first foreigner initiated into the mystical and sometimes dangerous world of India’s most ancient and mysterious order of yogis and sadhus, going back to the time of Adi Shankara.
The world of Hindu Mythology becomes alive as Baba Rampuri enters the portal of the Extraordinary World. An American, he has embraced the Sanatan Dharma, and has lived in India for more than forty three years as a sadhu.
The latest edition of Baba Rampuri’s book 'Autobiography of a Sadhu, a Journey into Mystic India' was published by Inner Traditions in 2010.
