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,

Some sources say that the Buddha was born on or around April 8, 563 B.C. How many years have you been around without discovering his wisdom? According to tradition, the words of The Dhammapada come directly from the mouth of Buddha. This translation in particular is among the most poetic and spiritually insightful.
