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.
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.

An insider's view of hidden adepts who live outside time and space as we know it, yogis and yogis who can't possibly exist- but do!" -- Linda Johnsen, author of The Living Goddess: Reclaiming the Tradition of the Mother of the Universe
