This book tells the mystical adventure of a Westerner, its adventurous hero Roman West who seriously took to the spiritual quest and entered into the depth of the Eastern culture of India where no other Westerner has been able to penetrate.
Hidden deep within the religious practices of India exist doors that lead to various levels of reality. Few people outside these mystical circles have been able to access these layers. Roman West probes the deep secrets of East Indian mysticism under the guidance of a spiritual master the meets in the Himalayas. Roman witnesses the amazing powers that mystics can achieve and undergoes some of the most unusual experiences of his life. He gradually develops mystical abilities of his own and attains the sacred vision of the enlightened sages, ultimately entering the unfathomable realm of "infinity".
Roman's peaceful life in the hills comes to an abrupt end when he is thrust into battle with powerful, sinister beings unleashed to kill both him and his master. His only chance for survival depends on his ability to arouse the spiritual strengths he has worked to perfect over many months of study.
