Living with the Himalayan Masters recounts the spiritual journey of a man who himself became a spiritual guide to thousands of people across the world. The author recounts his various experiences from childhood onwards as he sought spiritual enlightenment. The author is very candid in his account of his efforts to learn from the various people he encountered. He talks not just about the great masters but also the spurious ones, the so-called mystics who just indulged in the practice of magic tricks and other such gimmicks to attract innocent seekers. By letting the readers learn about his own mistakes and gullibility, the author makes a connection as the readers feel that he is just like one of them, prone to the same misconceptions, as themselves. This familiarity helps in drawing them deeper into his story when the author does discuss the true spiritual leaders. Living With The Himalayan Masters also shows how the author, at the behest of his own master, learnt and practiced several different schools of yoga and spiritualism. This led him to travel across the Himalayas, indulging in different yogic practices and learning from different gurus.
Ordained a monk at a young age by a great sage of the Himalayas, Swami Rama was involved in a learning journey from monasteries to caves, studying and living with more than a hundred sages in the solitude of the Himalaya Mountains and the plains of India. Among those with whom he studied were Tagore, Mahatma Gandhi, Sri Aurobindo, and Ramana Maharshi. In this collections of stories, Swami Rama relates his experiences with the great teachers who guided his life.
Drawing from ancient Sanskrit texts and an oral tradition unbroken for more than 5,000 years, Pandit Rajmani Tigunait reveals the ancient teachings of the Himalayan sages. The lives and timeless wisdom of eight Himalayan sages are rendered in absorbing, lively tales that both inspire and instruct in the manner of the great stories of all times. These stories provide a complete map of the spiritual journey for contemporary seekers.
In The Art of Joyful Living, Swami Rama imparts a message of inspiration and optimism: that every person is responsible for making his life happy and emanating that happiness to others. This book shows how to maintain a joyful view of life even in difficult times and gives methods for transforming habit patterns, developing intuition, cultivating strength and will power, and more. Whether you are on a spiritual quest or are simply looking for a way to improve your life, The Art of Joyful Living offers a simple philosophy of living and practical suggestions for being happy. A consistent Himalayan Institute Press bestseller (over 22,000 copies sold), this revised edition includes a new foreword by Pandit Rajmani Tigunait and an updated cover.
Fearless Living: Yoga and Faith is a sampling of Swami Rama’s many anecdotes, true stories of faith, protection, and revelation as he actually lived them. Each chapter addresses such challenging faith-related subjects as fearlessness, miracles of healing, and the astonishing abilities of the one-pointed mind. This is a book filled with stories of sages and saints who possess phenomenal siddhis, or supernatural powers. Some of its stories—mysterious beings who guide lost travellers in the Himalayas, a clever saga who changes one form of matter into another, a master who heals a boy suffering from small pox—will amaze you. But Swami Rama insisted that such gifts are trite. The real value of the practices are health, tranquillity, and enlightened awareness.
On the surface, this book is a biography of a great sage of the Himalayas who mastered the practices of yoga and brought to the West a system for understanding the mysteries of body, mind, and spirit.But like the life of Swami Rama, these pages go much deeper than a mere sequence of astonishing events. Through stories of the authentic and fruitful guru-disciple relationships Swami Rama had with both his mysterious master Baba Dharam Das and his own students, you will see how the precious stream of spiritual tradition is transmitted through the generations. These pages also serve as a guide to the more esoteric and advanced practices of yoga and tantra not commonly taught or understood in the West. And they bring you to holy places in India, revealing why these sacred sites are important and how to go about visiting them.The wisdom in these stories penetrates beyond the power of words. As you read Pandit Tigunait's tales of life with his master and see how a committed student actually draws knowledge and nourishment from his teacher, you will feel a few drops from the timeless stream of the traditions of the Himalayas planting themselves in your own heart.
