Autobiography of a Sadhu – a Journey into Mystic India

Against the backdrop of ancient 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 Naga Babas, Sanatan Dharma, and Hindu culture.

The latest edition of Baba Rampuri’s book ‘Autobiography of a Sadhu, a Journey into Mystic India’ was published by Inner Traditions in 2010.

Excerpts from Autobiography of a Sadhu

Chapter 2: “I Dream India into Existence”
I dreamed India into existence. Not that it was my personal private dream, but a believable movie reasonably constructed from the group psyche. It was comforting this dream, cushioned, as it were, with familiarity. It tamed the wild profusion of things, using the sights, sounds, and faces of India as its raw material. Everything might appear different from my ordinary world back home, but I knew that this was the way it was supposed to be. It was a good dream, it made me feel happy. — (SEE ALL THE EXCERPTS)

Reviews from Autobiography of a Sadhu

“…Baba Rampuri gives us an in-depth view of many of the common elements of Yoga and Indian spirituality, religion and culture, as well as an immersion in those areas normally hidden from Western eyes.

Baba Rampuri’s Must Read Book List

“…I consider these texts important for very different reasons, there are Indian scriptural texts for reference; under read, but academically revered modern thinkers from around the world whose ideas must be noted if we are to discuss Indian culture and spirituality with any sophistication; great literature that addresses our storytelling themes; both the Indian and Western interpreters of Indian culture and tradition…” — (read more and see the list)

‘Autobiography of a Sadhu’ is also published in German, Russian, Croatian, Serbian, Czech, and in Italian after October 2015. It is available online at Amazon, Flipkart and Ozon.
