Description

In The Mind of the Guru Rajiv Mehrotra presents dialogues with twenty contemporary sages and masters who have illumined the minds of millions around the world. Ranged here are gurus as diverse as B K S Iyengar, who brought yoga from the world of the esoteric to our living rooms, and Mata Amritanandamayi, whose mere presence invokes an overwhelming awareness of love. There is Deepak Chopra discussing a quantum healing of mind and body, Sogyal Rinpoche encouraging us to look at death so that we might live a better life and Sri Sri Ravi Shankar reaffirming each person’s right and access to happiness. And there is the unique and contrary voice of U G Krishnamurti telling us that all talk of transformation is poppycock. There are no grand narrative or final solutions, only guides who can show the way to the light within. Underlying the dialogues is their wisdom on how we make ourselves unhappy-and guidance on how we can turn our lives around to achieve happiness.

As Vipassana guru S N Goenka says, The teacher shows the way. One must walk in the path and experience it step by step. This book is a remarkable journey both for those looking to take their first tentative steps and those already well on the path.

REVIEWS
