"A superb audio translation....Extraordinary work." (Library Journal)
"Ben Kingsley's smooth, articulate performance makes the formal writing style accessible to the listener." (AudioFile)
Quite simply, a tour de force. Humility, wisdom and compassion underscore the message lovingly conveyed by this great sage of the 20th century. The sensitive narration by Kingsley is also fittingly sublime. A spiritual compass to collectively raise our awareness of who we truly are. A must-read for our troubled world. Om Kriya Babaji Nama Aum.
An incredible life and an unforgettable tale about a man who carried the message of his faith to a new world. I will listen to this book again!
This book changed my life. Never before has life been explained in the most simplistic form. To find yourself is to find your life. And then, help others find their lives.
Enjoyed the book overall. First quarter of the book is slow and did not know what to expect, but slowly got my attention and could not stop listening to it. Definitely worth while.
This gives you a glimpse as to what is possible in our human evolutionary process of our return to God.
wonderful story that reminds us of the mystery and mysticism of God and the path of yoga. the narration and pacing was very pleasant to listen to. great program.
This is one of the best books I've read and surely ever written. I'm amazed at its timelessness and was captivated by the colorful story. I immediately listened to it a second time to really soak in its profound, yet subtle, gems of wisdom.
