I bought this book on curiosity. India is a land of saints and Baba Lokenaths was a name I had never come across, unfortunately. However now that the I read this book, I can say I am touched by His presence. The Author has been able bring the life of a great saint to the general public and through the book, been able to make Baba's grace reach the souls who were not fortunate to witness the grand play of the Divine in physical form. Jai Baba Lokenath.

I like these type of books, the life and times of great men. I found it easy to read, it moved me and I think I will revisit it every year. I especially liked the meditations at the end of each chapter, a great way to cement what you have learnt.
You need an open mind if you are a westerner, many things will be considered "unreal" in the western materialistic worldview.
