Magic happens where worlds meet, as Baba Rampuri is fond of saying in his masterful book. Deepak Chopra wrote: “This book will entertain and enlighten you. A bold journey that explores the true intersections of Eastern and Western thought.” I found this to be true as I felt a connection with the Yoga Tradition as I have never had before. Baba Rampuri talks about his travels in India, making pilgrimages to a ‘crossing point between worlds’, the hidden entrances to these other worlds, the meaning of ‘darshan’ the beholding, achieving immortality, the alchemical contribution to the world, expanding one's vocabulary, Hindu scriptures and words such as ‘karma’ and ‘nirvana’ and their relevance to the experience of living, Indian culture and the oral tradition of naga babas, the ‘yogi shamans’, the search for new meanings, Indian cannabis use, gurus and their communication of self-knowledge, the distortion of Hinduism by India's colonizers, the “book of the world,” the Mother Goddess and her fruits spread across the world, the uncluttered mind of the yogi, his connection with the Goddess, and Amrita the Elixir of Immortality. As an American teenager, fuelled by the naïve exuberance of the Sixties, Rampuri is “pulled” deep into India, into an ancient order of yogis, where he is initiated and eventually possessed by a master shaman, a baba. But the spiritual path isn't quite what the young Rampuri expected, as the tantric murder of his guru presents a riddle to the young man that he must solve, requiring an inner journey of self-discovery, in order to know who he really is. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in Yoga, India, Spirituality, Self Knowledge, and Esoteric Knowledge. But that aside, for any reader of good literature, it's a great adventure story that leaves the reader anxious for his next book!
