New York Times best-selling author Radhanath Swami was born in Chicago in 1950. At age nineteen, he traveled overland from London to India, where he lived in Himalayan caves, learned yoga from revered masters, and eventually became a world-renowned spiritual leader in his own right. His acclaimed memoir, The Journey Home, has been translated into over twenty languages and sold in over forty countries worldwide. Radhanath Swami presently travels in Asia, Europe, and America teaching devotional wisdom but can often be found with his community in Mumbai, where he works tirelessly to help develop communities, food distribution initiatives, missionary hospitals, schools, ashrams, emergency relief programs, and eco-friendly farms.
"Radhanath's teaching here is highly accessible and a delight to read; newcomers will feel welcome to bhakti and intrigued by his conviction and compassion." - Publisher's Weekly "Radhanath Swami has conveyed The Divine Light through his writing with the gentle and seductive effortlessness that he does in person. This book is a joyful way to move closer to the truth within you" - Russell Brand "Radhanath Swami is a towering spiritual figure of our time. He is a masterful teacher and a wise leader whose knowledge inspires me. Don't miss the gems of wisdom and courage that comprise this powerful book." - Dr. Cornel West "The Journey Within was blurbed by Russell Brand and Cornel West - Radhanath is, for all his humbleness, an intellectual ambassador for a movement, 'a general in the saffron army,' as one of his friends described him to me. Radhanath later tells me that he's spoken at Princeton and Oxford, before the British Parliament, and at the Milken Conference in Beverly Hills. He's even chatted with President Obama." - New York Magazine online
