AT THE ELEVENTH HOUR (BY Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, Ph.D.)

Swami Rama

ON THE SURFACE, this book is a biography of a great sage of the practices of yoga & brought to the West a system for understanding the mysteries of body, mind, & spirit. But like the life of Swami Rama, these pages go much deeper than a mere sequence of astonishi-ng events. Through stories of the authentic & fruitful guru-disciple relationships Swami Rama had with both his mysterious master Bengali Baba & his own students, you will see how the precious stream of spiritual tradition is transmitted through the generations. These pages also serve as a guide to the more esoteric & advanced practices of yoga & tantra not commonly taught or unders-tood in the west. And they bring you to holy places in India, revealing why these sacred sites are important & how to go about visiting them. The wisdom in these stories penetrates betond the power of words. As you read Pandit Tigunait-'s tales of life with Swami Rama & see how a committed student actually drawa knowleedge & n-ourishment from his teacher, you will feel a few drops from the timeless stream of the traditions of the Himalayas planting themselves in your own heart.
