Ordinary Man, Extraordinary Journey
on May 21, 2010
Stumbling Into Infinity is the story of an ordinary man's quest to find his purpose, which through a series of events leads him into something much greater than expected. Michael Fischman meets Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, now a international spiritual leader who has affected the lives of millions, in the late 1980s when there are just a handful of people. He has written a memoir that is humorous, authentic and transparent.
For me, this is one of those books that I read in a day or two because I got so engrossed in the story. I was laughing, crying and reflecting on my own journey as I turned the pages and I found myself wanting to find out what happened next. Honestly, at first glance I thought it would be impossible to understand the relationship between a spiritual master and a devotee, let alone for someone to write about it in a way that would be interesting and truthful; however, I was blown away by how intimately the author looks at himself, shares his mental patterns, and the obstacles he faced on his journey. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good read and especially for those interested in eastern spirituality.
