Book Description Indica Books, Varanasi, India, 2002. Hard Cover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Second Edition. Death Must Die gives an intimate first-hand account of a courageous woman's spiritual quest in close association with several of India's greatest modem saints. Unfolding against the back-drop of Benares in the 1940s, where she lived as a teacher and musician, we are given an in-depth picture of her intense relationship with the extraordinary woman who becomes her guru - the great Bengali mystic, Sri Anandamayee Ma. Atmananda, as she came to be known, was also closely associated with J. Krishnamurti, and a unique picture is given of him here in comparison with his peers and contemporaries within India.
