Swami Rama. Fearless Living: Yoga and Faith. Edited by Linda Johnsen. Honesdale, Penn.: Himalayan Institute Press, 2005. Paperback, ix + 136 pp.
Swami Rama (1925-1996) was sent to the West by his renowned guru Bengali Baba to spread the spiritual teachings of Yoga. This he did with gusto and to great effect, attracting numerous students and creating the internationally known Himalayan Institute and other humanitarian organizations.
The present work is a compilation of Swami Rama’s thoughts and anecdotes and is intended to instill or strengthen the reader’s faith in the hidden spiritual dimension and the great masters inhabiting it. All too often, lack of faith undermines the beginner’s spiritual efforts, and so it is good to listen to the encouraging words of great mahatmas.
