is an exploration through the hills and across the plains, into the mentality and the psyche of India. John B. Murray writes with yogic detachment to interpret India through the lens of his own spiritual experience, probing its culture and the essence of Hindu, Buddhist and Christian thought in a manner that bridges the divide between East and West.
The narrative is punctuated with anecdotes that delight the reader - an encounter with Aung San Suu Kyi and her husband in Ladakh in the 1970s, and an interview with Bhagwan Sri Rajneesh before he became an international phenomenon come to mind. And one cannot forget the author's discussions with Tibetan Buddhist Rinpoches in mountain-top gompas, or the simple village woman in Rajasthan who sang her lyrical, devotional poems under the desert's night sky.
