gilt titles spine; illustrated by 8 b/w. photo's of various gurus including Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Saint Kirpal Singh Ji & His Holiness the Dalai Lama (who wrote the foreword to this book); "General Uban in this book presents the reader with a very personal account of his experiences with some of the most respected Gurus of India. He has devoted a lifetime to acquiring a broad knowledge of the spiritual, mystical and contemplative disciplines found in the subcontinent. Throughout a distinguished career in the Indian Army, General Uban was able to spend a great deal of time with his country's religious leaders. He formed a personal and intimate insight not only of the disciplines and theories involved but more especially of the men and women responsible for their teaching and propagation. Now retired from the Army, the author is a committed advocate of World Peace and Brotherhood, as proposed by many of the Gurus and holy men mentioned in the book. General Uban's firm dedication to his religious beliefs is paralleled by an openminded recognition of the validity of all religious sentiments as being necessary for greater Peace and Universal Love. His liberal approach has not made him blind to the numerous frauds whose sole aim is personal gain. He frequently reminds the reader of the need to choose one's religious leader carefully, for the path of spiritual enlightenment is never easy. General Uban presents a book, based on his valuable experiences and insights of these men and women of God, that is essential reading for anyone intent on the study or practice of spiritual and contemplative disciplines."; 175 pages.
