9780007312573: Everyday Yogi

While India is home to countless gurus and yogis, there are some remarkable yogis who keep away from the world, intent only on their spiritual goals. H.S.Shivaprakash, a renowned poet, scholar and playwright, has been fortunate enough to have known such masters, and Everyday Yogi is a fascinating account of his encounters with them.An English translation of the bestselling Kannada book,Batteesa Raga, this book offers a glimpse into the mysterious lives of powerful Christian mystics, Hindu gurus and Sufi pirs,who transform the author in profound ways through their spiritual practices. They also help him navigate the uncharted waters of an artistic life,often torn by great personal sorrow.As the author shares his spiritual growth, this book can well take the place of an everyday guru in the lives of its readers, offering both wisdom as well as the hope of transcendence in the turbulent times we live in.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers India 0. Softcover. Book Condition: New. Everyday Lou Suffern battled with the clock. He always had two places to be at the same time. He always had two things to do at once. When asleep he dreamed. In between dreams, he ran through the events of the day while making plans for the next. When at home with his wife and family, his mind was always someplace else. On his way into work one early winter morning, Lou meets Gabe, a homeless man sitting outside the office building. Intrigued by him and on discovering that he could also be very useful to have around, Lou gets Gabe a job in the post room. But soon Lou begins to regret helping Gabe. His very presence unsettles Lou and how does Gabe appear to be in two places at the same time? As Christmas draws closer, Lou starts to understand the value of time. He sees what is truly important in life yet at the same time he learns the harshest lesson of all. This is a story about people who not unlike parcels hide secrets. They cover themselves in layers until the right person unwraps them and discovers what`s inside. Sometimes you have to be unraveled in order to find out who you really are. For Lou Suffern, that took time. Printed Pages: 320. Bookseller Inventory # 27484
