I feel very fortunate to write review of this special memoir of his Holiness , The Swamiji. My humble obeisance onto his lotus feet. I was blessed and fortunate to come in contact with Dearest Swamiji thru Speaking Tree. I was immediately impressed by simplicity and depth of his spiritual wisdom. I happened to meet some of his earliest devotees and was perplexed to hear about his extraordinary in most hostile environment. My first meeting with Swamiji was out of world experience for me, wherein I just melted in front of his unimaginable compassion for one and all. I cried in gratitude like I never cried in my lifetime. That experience has already become one of my most memorable experience of this life. Swamiji was initially reluctant to write this divine memoir. It was after persistent request by devotees like me, that Swamiji finally agreed, out of his love, grace and compassion for us. I am sure this divine Memoir of Swamiji has potential to change life of millions of people in unimaginable proportions. A must read memoir. --Vipul Nov 21, 2014
I knew I had to read this book and I did, I loved this book and finished it in two days, and after that I haven't had the desire to read any other self-help book. I wish to re-read it once again because I liked it so much. I strongly suggest that this book should be read. It has been an eye opener for me. --Purnima Das Dec 27, 2014
The title of the book unveils its potential. It's simply outstanding and exceptionally well written. It reflects the truthfulness of the writer and deeper insights, which really inspired me to reflect on my inner truth. I have read many books but this is the first book in my life that I read in almost at one go. I found it extremely gripping with vigour to take me in highs and lows. I was floating in the zone which I have heard that existed but never knew that someone can actually pursue it in real life. The real life incidents accompanied with inner realizations is very interesting throughout this book. A must read --Hemma Dec 8, 2014

The book is written in a very intimate style where the author is almost going through his life as in an autobiography. Recommend this book to all spiritual seekers as there are many things to learn from.
This book is honest, heart warming, heart breaking at some points and hilarious at others.
The book is a subtle reminder of the magnificence of the universe and how all sentient beings are interconnected. It is strongly based in logic and rationality and will appeal to even the most cynical minds as nothing in the book is brought about in blind faith.
This book finally (and all of om swami' s books) can provide great insights into the sociology of modern life, mental illness, peace and conflict as well as the relevance of spirituality today, more than ever, doing away with the bio medical "mind-body duality".
