Dog, Yogi, Banyan Tree Paperback – 9 May 2017
Frequently bought together
Dog, Yogi, Banyan Tree is a fascinating journey into the evolution of Dr. Rajan Sankaran, a ground breaking homeopathic physician. At the same time it is an interesting look into life in India in the 1960s and '70s, an era little understood by many in the West. - Beau L'Amour --Beau L'Amour is a writer and entertainment industry jack-of-all-trades. He is the son of best selling novelist Louis L'Amour and has managed his father's literary estate since 1988.
The primary point of Rajan Sankaran s new book, Dog, Yogi, Banyan Tree, is that every person and every situation is a teacher. Equally important to this message is that there is every day magic in each of our lives, and when people become aware of this fact, more magic and more coincidence happens. If you don t understand precisely what I mean here, I suggest that you read Rajan s book, thereby awakening your heart and mind to learning more about yourself and your soul s path. --Dana Ullman, MPH, CCH Author of 10 books on homeopathy and publisher of 40 homeopathic books

My brother Thiruvalluvan, introduced Dr Rajan's books / concepts 15+ years ago; he is an amateur homeopathic and has healed many people (including me) following Dr Rajan's (and many others') methods. Reading Dr Rajan's previous books and discussing his concepts/methods with my brother a few years ago, it was evident to me then, if the search continued in this path/direction, Dr Rajan cannot fail to arrive HOME and he has truly arrived. As Ramana Maharishi used to put it - there is no escape for a disciple caught (guided) by a Guru like a prey caught by a tiger - both will be consumed. All that is needed is openness which is also possible only by the grace of the 'total' / 'whole' / ONE. Dr Rajan brings this out clearly through his various relationships in the most interesting and enjoyable way to read, makes you feel you are walking along with him. I recommend and am sure this book will appeal to many irrespective of their age and attitude (rational/scientific, spiritual, agnostic, atheist, social / economic / political leanings, education...).

Storyline: I realized this book is a non-fiction meaning that the short stories and life lessons that form part of the book are personally experienced by the author himself. I absolutely am in love with each of the stories that form a beautiful part of this quick and breezy read.
What I love the most about this book is that it is 222 pages long and there are more than 222 life lessons that you will learn through these pages. For those that are looking to go on a spiritual self-discovery, DYBT is your must-have winter read.
I personally liked this excerpt.
But, it is a lion!
Once, on the train back from a holiday, a fellow passenger asked my father how many children he had. When my father said that I was his only child, he asked if one child was not too few, and my father told him a story. He described a meeting in the jungle between the animals in which they were comparing how many children each of them had. The goat said she had eight, the horse said they had six, the elephants six too, and so on. When the lion’s turn came, he said, “I have only one.” Then he paused and said, ‘But it is a lion!”
When it came to honing his vocabulary, I must say the author has done a commendable job. However, I am slightly disappointed by the editor who didn't take enough time to revisit common rules of grammar when it comes to using the right conjugation, punctuations and even as little as sentence construction. However, with the beauty that this book is, I am going to put away these little mishaps on the sidelines (BASICALLY IGNORE THEM)
Intriguing book title, isn’t it? So, are the 3 components mentioned in the title related, or unrelated? This is the thought that made me want to read this book.
Author Rajan Sankaran is a Mumbai-based homeopathic practitioner, researcher and author. His first memories are those of a young boy looking up to his multi-faceted, doctor father in awe and finding a friend in his mother. Being a diligent student and an eager doctor followed. Along the way, people and situations helped him become a confident and upcoming doctor. The light of fame shone down on him and his confidence rose as it did. However, when the light dimmed, or was taken away from him his persona dimmed too.
Rajan has traversed through life treating every experience as a learning curve. His enthusiasm for life and learning ensured that every being he met became his teacher and every experience he went through made him look within.
Sankaran shares his cons as openly as he has shared his pros, without any guile. His respect and reverence for all his teachers is genuine and the generosity of his spirit and his gratitude is evident in the way he has shared his experiences.
Rajan Sankaran has a lot to say, and he says it well. His life has been a series of interesting experiences and much like a good student he observed and then absorbed from them. Sankaran has distilled all those experiences, to share with us the concentrated nectar of wisdom.
His narrative is peppered with anecdotes, often followed by introspection. It is almost like the author is thinking aloud. Reading this book will feel like listening to a friend. Keep your mind open as you read and you will enrich yourself.
Each of the chapters stand out on their own, like a beautiful flower. They are then interlinked, like flowers coming together to form a beautiful garland. Wear that garland. It will enhance you, the fragrance of the flowers will linger and the beauty of them will be imprinted in memory forever.
