In his memoir, The Journey Home , Radhanath Swami weaves a colorful tapestry of adventure and love. He tracks Richard Slavin from the suburbs of Chicago to the caves of the Himalayas as he transforms from a young seeker to a renowned spiritual guide.
He also offers an intimate account of the steps to self-awareness and a penetrating glimpse into the heart of mystic traditions and the challenges that all souls must face on their path to inner harmony and union with the Divine.
Through near-death encounters, apprenticeships with advanced yogis, and years of travel along the pilgrim's path, Radhanath Swami eventually reaches the sanctum sanctorum of India’s mystic culture. There he finds the love he’s been seeking. It is a tale told with rare candor that immerses readers in a journey that is engaging, humorous, and heartwarming.
