At 25, Andrew Harvey abandoned a brilliant career at Oxford to return to his native India. A rationalist atheist, he raised every possible argument against the existence of another reality and watched each dissolve in the face of extraordinary mystical experiences. Here is the story of his spiritual transformation.

Harvey's astonishing journey will make readers envious. Born in India and abandoned by his mother at six, Harvey was sent to boarding schools in India and England. His experience as an Anglo-Indian living in Great Britain reinforced his need for spiritual growth. On one of his frequent trips back to India he met a mysterious 17-year-old girl, Mother Meera ("Ma"). Harvey chronicles his growing dissatisfaction with Western philosophy after that event and describes his alternating states of bliss, terror, confusion, and understanding as he slowly moves toward enlightenment. Eventually he sees Ma's true identity: that of an avatar, or goddess incarnate, whose purpose is to encourage human and planetary healing. Readers will connect to his experience and realize the immense amount of sacrifice necessary for enlightenment. Exquisitely written, deeply moving, and highly recommended.
