Volume 1 shares beautiful stories from Papaji’s childhood days in Punjab, infused with his great love for Krishna and devoted search for God. It continues into adulthood and, narrated through Papaji’s own words, the auspicious meeting in 1944 with Sri Ramana Maharshi, who was to become his spiritual master. It also includes the decades that followed of Papaji’s unfolding emergence as a spiritual teacher.
Volume 2 continues with Papaji’s travels to the West and his many encounters with seekers from all around the world, who were deeply transformed by his presence and timeless message. It is filled and enriched with stories from devotees which offer us windows to meet Papaji through their unique experiences.
Volume 3 describes Papaji’s extensive travels in his later years and some of the incredible meetings that happened along the way. It also includes powerful – sometimes handwritten – extracts from his diaries.
“When I know my personal self and the impersonal Self are by nature one and the same, how could there be anyone to meditate or anything to meditate upon? Whatever I enjoy, whatever I give, whatever I dedicate, whatever I do, nothing belongs to me. I am without blemish, I am without birth, I am without death. It is in my firm conviction that I am free in the beginning, free in the end, free in the middle, with unborn cleanliness and simplicity.”
About the cosmetic imperfections: these can vary, but are of the nature of a few pages having small folds in the corner, page cutting errors, smudges on inside pages, a few printing ink marks on the paper edges or damage to the cover or spine.
