Long-awaited for over 10 years, Swami Shankarananda’s own spiritual memoir, Ganeshpuri Days is out now.
An intimate and authentic account, Swamiji writes eloquently about his life, beginning in Brooklyn, New York. He shares with us his early years, searching for purpose and meaning through education and academia, among other things. One day, he meets the late, great teacher Ram Dass which sets him off on a journey to the East in search of a Guru, or Great Being.
Swamiji meets many great beings, until eventually finding his Guru, Baba Muktananda and studying under him for 3 years in his ashram in Ganeshpuri, India. He takes the reader in a mystical journey through the very depths of sadhana (spiritual practice), and the intricacies of the Guru-disciple relationship.
Under Baba’s guidance he emerges from a twelve-year apprenticeship as a knower of the Self and a Guru in his own right.
Ganeshpuri Days is a beautifully written account that will inspire readers to awaken to the true Self and fulfil their highest potential.
