In the pages of this book we are taken on a profound pilgrimage of spiritual discovery. We wander the length and breadth of India in search of westerners who have forsaken their old lives in the West for totally new, dramatically more meaningful ones in the East. By seeing Indian spirituality through the eyes of outsiders who were not born into the ancient culture, but found tremendous personal meaning therein, we discover it new and fresh with each individual Tillis interviews. All have discovered an enormous spiritual wealth in India that makes the material prosperity and technological advancements of the West seem desolate and primitive in comparison.Among the people interviewed: Vijayananda, Ani Tenzin Palmo (Diana Perry), Swami Jnanananda, Bill Aitken, Atmananda, Lucia Osborne, Father Bede Griffith.
