A very good book

if you liked "Autobiography of a yogi" by Sri Paramhansa Yogananda then you're gonna love this.

but i think that it's fair to point out that according to wikipedia Swami Rama is far from being your next door yogi saint.

light and love,

In Its Own Little World

The author claims all kinds of physical miracles, and does not come across as believable or wise. A lot of what he says is very dogmatic, and seems focused on proving that his particular branch of practice is best, and his masters are the greatest. He decries ego while demonstrating ego on every page. It's terribly disappointing, but I did learn much from reading it -- however, the lessons I learned probably were not the ones the author thought he was giving.

The narration is in a strong British-Indian accent, by the way. The narrator is competent much of the time, but does mispronounce several words in ways that can be very distracting.
