Colour printed – 130 illustrations Tales of meetings with Dandi Swami Narayananand Saraswati, the Guru’s Will, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi & the Shankaracharyas of Jyotir Math. ‘Dandi Swami’ is a book celebrating the life of Dandi Swami Narayananand Saraswati and explores the lives of others from his lineage of thinkers. Dandi Swami Narayananand Saraswati was a contempory of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the man who popularised Transcendental Meditation. Both used to listen to the teachings of the same guru, Shankaracharya Swami Brahmanand Saraswati. When the guru died he left a Will empowering one of his disciples to take his place as Shankaracharya of Jyotir Math, in the Himalayas. Not everyone was happy with the Will, and there have been disputes over succession ever since. It appears that Dandi Swami was offered the post of Shankaracharya but declined, preferring a life of seclusion. ‘Dandi Swami’ presents many quotations from Dandi Swami’s teacher, Swami Shantanand, providing food for thought, and spiritual solace. ‘Dandi Swami’ includes selected quotations from Swami Brahmanand, a guru who had the ear of the first President of India. ‘Dandi Swami’ explores spiritual questions through the eyes of those that meet with Dandi Swami. Accounts of visitors such as Rob H van Dijk and Paul Mason offer glimpses into the life and beliefs of this humble hermit. An interview with David Sieveking offers futher insights into the retiring personality of Dandi Swami.
