Book Description

In The Mind of the Guru, Rajiv Mehrotra presents dialogues with several contemporary sages

and masters who have illumined the minds of millions around the world. Ranged here are

gurus as diverse as B. K. S. Iyengar, who brought yoga from the world of the esoteric to our

living rooms; Swami Ramdev, who has democratized yoga via television; and Mata

Amritanandamayi, whose mere presence invokes an overwhelming awareness of love. There

is Deepak Chopra discussing a quantum healing of mind and body, Sogyal Rinpoche

encouraging us to look at death so that we might live a better life and Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

reaffirming each person’s right and access to happiness. And there is the unique and

contrary voice of U. G. Krishnamurti telling us that all talk of transformation is poppycock.

There are no grand narratives or final solutions, only guides who can show the way to the

light within. Here you learn from voices as diverse as that of Thich Nhat Hanh, Bishop

Desmond Tutu, Baba Amte and Stanislav Grof. Underlying the dialogues is their wisdom

on how we can make ourselves unhappy – and guidance on how we can turn our lives

around to achieve happiness.
