About The Book

This Book is a graphic face to face account of encounters with unusual men and women- the faith-healers, the flesh mortifiers the mystics who materialize ash and honey, black magicians, yogis who stop their pulse and heart beat, death defiers who get buried alive and live to tell the tale, spiritual séance mediums who act as transmitters between the living and the dead, and much more.

Some mysteries of the Universe are beyond man’s comprehension, yet they never fail to ignite his curiosity. The very fact that these psychic phenomena cannot be exhibited by everyone, adds to their peculiar allure.

This book is an objective sally into this realm. What gives some mortals these super-powers?

Science has not yet found all the answers. Hear what the mystics and miracle men say in their own versions of what exactly happens to them on the psychic, physical and metaphysical planes, when they are going through these experiences

Psychic experiences are more common than one supposes. Almost every third person I encountered in the normal course of dav-to-day living had had direct experiences with ghosts or spirits; had been influenced by a mystic, or cured by a faith, healer.

Whenever I mentioned my subject, I got strange reactions from people. For instance, Mr. S.O. Raghu who had spent five years in Tibet and Sikkim and had some direct as well as indirect experiences with the occult, asked me: "Why have you chosen this subject?" "Why not?" I replied. "It is fascinating."

"It is strange," he said. "Being drawn to esoteric subjects is almost as if it were preordained." Some mysteries of the Universe are beyond .man's comprehension, yet they never fail to ignite curiosity.

What is the difference between mysticism and magic? Is faith, healing a fact?

Can there be clairvoyance? Is it possible to recall past births? Do dead men tell tales? What happens in a trance state? Can a man survive living burial? Do meditation techniques arouse a fourth dimension? Can black magic kill? What happens when you die? Is reincarnation a fact? Does the mind have power over matter? Can psychic healing cure?

Science has not yet found all the answers. But, one can at least hear those who have had such experiences and what happen to them when they are passing through the psychic, paranormal and metaphysical planes. A face-to-face encounter with them may not make you a greater spiritual person, but will definitely make you a more thoughtful one.

This is a compilation of my experiences with such phenomena spanning several years and which I wish to share with you.
