Autobiography of a Sadhu Reviews

Autobiography of a Sadhu: Reviews

“Rampuri seeks the ability to read the book of the world but there are too many obstacles in his way. He marvels at the way Hari Puri Baba talks the language of crows and doles out advice, cures, and blessings to the people who come to him. After his guru’s death, Rampuri feels that he has possessed him. At the end of this compelling autobiography, the author says that he hopes readers will be edified and entertained by his quest for Truth and his adventures in the Extraordinary World.”


Baba Rampuri reads from “Autobiography of a Sadhu”

“When I turned around, I saw myself reflected from every angle. In fact, I was in a room full of mirrors, and there were now thousands of me. The sky had vanished, replaced by a ceiling mirror, and when I looked up, my multitudes looked down on me. Hari Puri was no longer with me and I was sitting atop an abyss, in a world that consisted only of my own reflected image.”

Crows Magic

A short video clip about the magic of crows, and their relationship to shamans and yogis. I also talk about crows magic and their astounding language in my book, “Autobiography of a Sadhu.” There are very few babas or shamans, today, that are able to speak with crows, but when I was first in India, I met several babas who could.
