This Monk from India
An engaging, authentic biography of a living saint, Sri Swami Chidananda.
This book by Yvonne Lebeau, a spiritual seeker from France, is in the nature of a tribute to her Guru or spiritual mentor, Sri Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj.
An interesting aspect of the book is the light it throws on the encounter between the occidental mind and oriental philosophy.
Another aspect of the book—and an equally significant one—is the insight it gives into the various struggles which every spiritual seeker has to undergo in traversing the path of Yoga or conscious spiritual evolution.
It speaks volumes for the magnanimity of the author that she has been motivated by an earnest desire that the message of this book, viz., the message of Yoga-Vedanta, should be broadcast far and wide, especially in the Western world. May God bless her with health, long life and many more years of spiritual service and illumination too!
The present edition is enriched with fresh matter that the writer felt would add to the value of the book.
