This extraordinary book profiles many of India's great saints and provides a careful study of both Indian concepts and practices of renunciation and of the western Counter Culture of the sixties which formed an integral part of the background of these seekers. A major part of the book is devoted to a description of the lives and experiences of the renunciates themselves.
