Out of India

Rate this book
Born and raised in India, Caryl Matrisciana was surrounded by a strange and mystical religion, seeing firsthand the effects Hinduism had on the people of that nation. After leaving India as a young adult, she became involved in the counter-culture hippie movement, only to find that the elements of Hinduism and the New Age were very much the same.Eventually, Caryl would discover that this same spirituality had entered not only the Western world but the Christian church as well, unbeknownst to most people. “When I was twenty years old, my family returned from India, where I was born and lived for most of my life, to England, our homeland. It was during the turbulent sixties, and I was about to be introduced to a movement that didn’t even have a name yet. How could I have possibly known then that the strange and mystical religion I had been surrounded by in India would someday be at the heart of a spirituality that would influence millions around the world?”Out of India succinctly identifies the mystical religious roots behind Yoga, which is being practiced today by millions of people, many of whom are Christians. Revised and adapted from the best-selling book, Gods of the New Age.

Have you ever wondered how those that grew up in even a traditional western home with a traditional education get sucked into Eastern style religions and drugs? This book tells you how it happens. She explains the philosophies she accepted that lead her down such a destructive path.
Then she explains how the Truth set her free. She tells of the immediate change in her perspective on sin, and of her continued growth toward an obedient life of service to Christ.
She also speaks of the subtle errors that are creeping into the Church. She lived those philosophies. She sees so clearly where they lead and she has such a burden to warn others of the destruction that comes from following their paths.
I would recommend this book to everyone. It is so important to understand the dangers out there.

Listen to this woman

It is like she saw all this happen before it did. Good Christians need to be careful and thus book tells why. Support Indian missionaries. That is the only solution in the long runm
