The Spiritual Autobiography of Shri Ghanshyamdas Birla

“a rare sensitivity...contains the main exemplars for living a spiritual life.... Whoever picks up this book will want to read it to the end.”–Professor Krishna Sivaraman, Editor, Hindu Volumes, World Spirituality: An Encyclopedic History of the Religious Quest

These poetic narrations are the reflections of one of the central figures of 20th Century India, a close friend and major supporter of Mahatma Gandhi, who spoke of the author’s “sacred work”. Acclaimed as a “Karma Yogi,” Birla tells his life story within the epic religious story of India–the Bhagavata, the mythic sacred tale of Lord Krishna’s life which became for Birla, the authentic source and expression of his creative energy. His transpersonal and mythic consciousness is a remarkable corrective to our overstated Western individualism and rationalism.
