Comments about Travels with the Mystic Master:
 This book is full of delightful and educative stories. I enjoyed it somuch that I read most of it in a single night.ó Robert Bly, winner of the National Book Award (USA) for poetry,author of bestseller Iron John: A Book About MenAn authentic, inspiring and humorous chronicle of modern-day mysticism... explores the usually unexpressed 'nitty-gritty' of spiritual development.-- New Renaissance magazineOne cannot help being moved by the enchanting simplicity of theauthorís straightforward yet lyrical prose, often set in rich humor ...Seekers of truth will be drawn by his description of what it takes toadvance in the world of spiritual consciousness. Perhaps, however, thegreatest achievement of the book is the introduction of the awesome Tantric culture through firsthand experience, with intricate detail aboutthe methods of a real master.ó Global TimesDharmavedananda begins his journey from the episteme of Indian Tantra, but his profundity touches the deeper dimensions of other cultures,and ends in universalism. Mysterious and provocative, withoutacceding to New Ageism.ó Journal of Future Studies This adventure, told by a man who gave up everything in life, onlyto find he could not then contain all that was offered him, is a wonderfulwork. Read it and discover how the often difficult path of true spiritualenlightenment can be surprisingly fun, especially when attemptingto follow the hallowed footsteps of Dadaís unpredictable master.ó Bob Trask, founder/president of the ARAS Foundation (Acceptance,Respect, Affection, Support), author of several books includingGodís Phone Number and Romancing The Soul: A Journey To Enlightenment The book teaches on multi-levels through a natural and frank interlacingof the personal lives of the author and his master, throughinner journeys, and through lessons gained from the master ó withphilosophical reflections as footnotes. Itís a document of human courageand spiritual dedication no matter how little one has to eat orhow sick one gets. It gave me numerous insights, also emotional re-lease and practical guidance, especially about several issues which hadbeen troubling me for years.ó Dr Paul Wildman, Co-chairman of the United Nations UniversitiesMillennnium Project, BrisbaneDescribes in depth the authorís relationship with Shrii Anandamurtiji,who was surely one of the greatest spiritual masters of all time.I found the book contains an ocean of knowledge and wisdom.
 
ó Dr Ravi Batra, author of five international bestsellers about economics,professor of economics Southern Methodist University inDallasA great read! Being a westerner and complete novice to all things Tantric, Dadaís writings opened my eyes to this fascinating culture. Hisexperiences are almost unimaginable to most Americans and can restoreour faith that miracles can and do happen!ó Sheila Casserly, President of Celebrity Focus: a celebrity talentconsultancy agency, ChicagoA rare book ó sparkling with a living spirituality. Readers will greatlybenefit.ó Zhong Ti, Chinese Buddhist teacher & monk, ThailandFascinating! ...especially because of the overwhelming practicalknowledge contained in the experiences of a man seeking genuine spirituality.Its adventure-novel-like style made it difficult for me to put itdown. ...embodies more meaning than most philosophy books. Yet,nothing is hidden of the hardships and doubts one is bound to encounterwhile walking such a path.ó Jairo R. Braganca, Director of Jaybee Institute of Languages,Petropolis, BrazilAn extraordinary book by a remarkable man. The spiritual equivalentof rugged mountain climbing; fast moving and no holds barred.ó Steve Gunther, Director of Northern Rivers Gestalt Institute, NewSouth WalesDharmavedanandaís passionate writings are a spiritual juggernaut,compelling us to share the tears, laughter and inspiration of the journeyto self-knowledge. The greatest gift the author offers is the knowledgethat in victory and defeat the Mystic Master always remains inthe recesses of our hearts and minds.ó Dr Sid Jordan, Department of Psychiatry, Medical University of South Carolina
