More on Swami Rama of the Himalayas: His Life & Mission
This book is the living legacy of the sage Sri Swami Rama. Raised in the cave monasteries of the Himalayas, he gathered the nectar of love and wisdom from hundreds of saints and sages, and without letting the world know who he was, filled innumerable hearts with those divine gifts.
This book leads the reader through the corridor of Swami Rama's life, providing a glimpse of who he was and giving a sense of what he meant when he said, "Where life ends, the mystery of love begins." It is the most comprehensive portrait of his life to date.
The photographs span Swami Rama's life from his late teens to his last days in 1996. In them, he is seen in some of his many roles -- seeker, saint, scientist, teacher, humanitarian, and the sage who, throughout it all, was first and foremost a child of the Divine Mother. Most of these photographs were not intended for publication; they were taken by those who wanted to preserve memories of their encounters with Swami Rama.
In concert with the valuable photographs, this text brings Swami Rama's life and mission into focus, making this commemorative volume an invaluable contribution to the body of spiritual literature.
