About Radhanath Swami

Radhanath Swami - An AuthorBorn in Chicago in 1950, Radhanath Swami, sets out to wander the world on a spiritual quest. Arriving in India in 1970, he lives the life of a wandering mendicant, travelling both outwardly and inwardly. Within months, his young world is augmented by experience, realization, soul-stirring revelations and near death experiences. He imbibes the teachings of great yogis, monks, and gurus including Swami Sivananda, Swami Rama, Swami Satchitananda, Swami Chidananda, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Ananda Mayi Ma, Neem Karoli Baba, Muktananda, the Dalai Lama and Mother Teresa. He meets lepers and Naga Babas, contemplative Buddhists and mystic yogis. Living in Himalayan caves, forests and under trees, he moves through the subcontinent with a thirst for “the truth” that is rarely seen. Fasting and meditating for a month on the Banks of the Ganga in Rishikesh, he hears the celestial sound of mantras emerging from the Holy River.

Each experience brings him closer to the core of India’s mystic teachings and to the divine love he has been seeking. He reveals all in “The Journey Home”, a penetrating account into the heart of a seeker, filled with humor, adventure, wisdom, and inspiration. Perhaps not since, Autobiography of A Yogi, has such a lucid and intricate tale of one man’s revelation of the soul been so wonderfully recounted. As a man of infinite depth and grace, his life story offers all who hear it, an infinite wisdom.

  11. It is a “safar”, true, and an “anokha” one, absolutely. How it would affect one who reads this book depends on how openly the reader approaches it. Just immerse in the sheer mastery of Radhanath Swami’ words as he weaves magic with his accounts of the adventures of his life.

  19. A truly “anokha” sojourn through the surface of the earth from Europe to India in search of God. This book by Radhanath Swami goes on to illustrate that if the desire to inquire about God is serious and sincere enough, no obstacle is big enough and no adversity is bad enough to prevent one from reaching his/her ultimate destination – shelter of God.

    By: Kirit Chaudhury . April 3, 2013 . 7:22 am

  20. Its due to the intense desire to bring everyone out of the fire of material existence, that Radhanath Swami is making the time to preach to everyone. His heart is very merciful.

    By: manish . April 5, 2013 . 5:29 am
