This book gives an intimate first-hand account of a courageous woman’s spiritual quest in close association with several of India’s greatest modern saints. Unfolding against the back-drop of Benares in the 1940s, where she lived as a teacher and musician.
The great Bengali mystic, Sri Anandamayee Ma. Atmananda, as she came to be kinown, was also closely associated with J. Krishnamurti, but she was drawn deeper into the heart of Indian spirituality, encountering Sri Ramana Maharshi at his ashram in South India in 1942 and ultimately coming to Anandamayee Ma.
Although written in a diary format, her story reads almost like a novel. A rare record of a remarkable spiritual odyssey.
