This is the fascinating story of how Eknath Easwaran transformed his own life: the influence of his spiritual teacher, his grandmother; his education in an India under the domination of the British Raj, how he came to develop his method of meditation. In presenting these conversations, say the authors, "we have attempted to recreate not only what Easwaran has said but to convey some feeling for what it's like to be with him when he's talking and for what it's like to be one of his students."
