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 esoteric path of Sanatan Dharma and India’s diverse 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 spiritual and sometimes dangerous world of India’s most ancient and mysterious order of yogis and sadhus, the Naga Babas – going back to the time of Adi Shankara, and before, to the Guru of Yogis, Lord Dattatreya.

The world of Hindu Mythology becomes alive as Baba Rampuri enters the portal of the Extraordinary World. He must learn the rules and obtain the protocols of knowledge in a strange language.

An American by birth, he has embraced the Sanatan Dharma, and lives in India for more than forty-five years practising and teaching the ancient tradition.
