Description
Publisher's Note

"If one Chinmayananda was enough to make all the workers of the Mission tremble, one Tapovan Maharaj was enough to make him tremble," observed someone in the Chinmaya Mission.

In saying so he was only drawing our attention to the Master, the Parama Guru, who chiseled Pujya Gurudev, Swami Chinmayananda and made him the sparking diamond that he was.

This book is the saga of Swami Tapovan Maharaj, 'the veritable forest of Austerities', whose dignity added to the pristine glory of the Himalayas. The childhood, the adolescence and the adulthood of this Supreme Master was marked by one quest – the quest of Eternity.

In following what was after his heart, his life became a natural penance.

While reading about him, a little of his focus, his indomitable will is bound to rub off on us.

This book is the sadhana of one seeker, Smt. Radhika Krishnakumar, and opens doors, nay gateways to all other seekers.

Needless to say, Central Chinmaya Mission Trust is happy to Present this book to its devotees and general readers.

Foreword

Parama Guru Swami Tapovan Maharaj belonged to that class of exalted Mahatmas about whom Srimad Bhagavatam says:

"Without bathing oneself in the dust Holy Men's Feet, this Enlightenment cannot be had, O Rahugana, merely through various disciplines like austerity, sacrifices, charitable gifts of food and the like, by domestic duties, by Vedic study, or worship of various deities."

The Lord Himself says about such rare Ones -

"I always follow the footsteps of a sage, who desires nothing, who is always tranquil and who had enmity to none, in order that all the worlds within Me may get purified by the dust of His Feet."

inspired by the teaching of his Guru Swami Tapovan Maharaj, Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayanandji carried out his life's mission of imparting the message of the Scriptures and the Bhagavad Gita to people all over the world. Today, thousands of people hold Swami Tapovan Maharaj in great reverence, but very few know about the details of his inspiring life. This simple and reader-friendly book, Himalayan Hermit, bridges the gap and provides very valuable and authentic information about this Mahatma, who was held in high esteem even by the Sages in the Himalayan heights. Following his footsteps one can have the blessing of being purified by the dust of his holy feet, thus endearing oneself to the lord of the Universe.

Smt. Radhika Krishnakumar has delved deeply into Iswara Darshan, a spiritual autobiography written by Swami Tapovan Maharaj himself, as well as other literature by and about him, to bring out the essential facts as well as the rare spiritual insights, and has presented them with admirable clarity. I am pleased with the attitude of dedicated worship in which she has undertaken this work. I invoke the blessing of Parma Guru Swami Tapovan Maharaj to guide her on the spiritual path.

Back of the book

"We gain spiritual eminence when we visit the Himalayas. But he was a rare one who brought glory to the very Himalayas!" – thus spoken great Masters about Swami Tapovan Maharaj.

this spiritual luminary and realized Sage lived in obscure hamlets in the tap of the Himalayas for the best part of his life. But his disciple, the internationally acclaimed spiritual leader Swami Cinmayananda, carried his Guru's name and image to for corners of the globe.

this book chronicles the life of this exalted Himalayan Hermit – called so, not just because of where he lived, but also because of his Himalayan Wisdom and experience, which enabled him to revel constantly in the highest Truth.

his life inspires and elevates, teaches and transforms, and has a rare power to make us look within ourselves and question the very fundamental basis on which we lead our lives.
