Description
About the Book:

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.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
