It is not just a book, but the journey of the author. While you embark on this journey with him, you are sure to find your own path or if you have found it already, it will surely guide you through it. In the challenging times of today, when it is hard to believe or pick from the pool of information available to us, just one read of this book would leave you with no choice. Truth has a magnetic pull to it and the one who is really seeking it, would recognize it in no time.
I cried, laughed and got lost, I felt as though I was witnessing every moment. At some point in time each of us wish to lead a life of truthfulness, of principles that we want to stand by, but we tend to be weak (I do). But the author, brings forth to life, the ocean of myriad possibilities – which we were either told to bury, as a child, or learnt to do so .This is not just an inspirational book, this is much much more if you would trust me.
While yes, it guides us on the spiritual path but there is more to it. I would say it makes us gather all the strength we have in our own selves and helps us walk on our path. It is not only a narration of incidents, but at the same time it also shakes our conditioned souls to remove the veils that we have been living with.
I have been reading the author’s blog – omswami.com for some time now, and can tell you that I could never have imagined that behind the simplicity and humbleness which is evident from the blog posts lies a being who rose beyond all the barriers and painstakingly pursued his dream – To Meet God. He left behind everything, family, friends, unimaginable wealth and even refused to provide basic comfort to his own body.
We all have our own inferences, and it offers one to everyone. You will be astonished to what you are holding in your hands and then at yourself. I have read the book twice now and about to finish the third read. I am amazed whenever I read it , it just answers the questions within yet so subtly.
A must read for everyone. No matter who you are, which culture or tradition you belong to, what question you have. You may be on a spiritual journey or may not be .. but you have to read it once in your life. This book has a lot to offer. If you haven’t read it you are missing on something in life.

Felt so great reading this.
Reading biography of great people is my hobby to learn from them. But reading this memoir was an experience in itself!!
This book takes its readers into the life journey of Om Swami in a special way, where you can't stop but keep visualizing each and every scene in front of the eyes, and you feel like you are witnessing every moment of Om Swami's life in search of truth.
I don't find proper word in English to describe how amazing this book is! It gives you some divine pleasure while reading, I simply but strongly just recommend to buy this book and experience yourself to see how it feels!
A must read book.
I'd recommend Om Swami's discourses on YouTube and his blog after reading this book.
A quote from this book - "Enlightenment teaches us how to live in the world with grace, independence and joy."
Like the author, we are on our own journey to find truth for ourselves and by conquering our inner self we can live an enlightened life without renouncing the material world, navigating as a master of our mind and not a slave to our body.
I enjoyed your book very much. Thanks
I am deeply moved with this message.
