About The Book

German author Maria Wirth traveled widely in her twenties to thirty-nine countries from Chile to Indonesia. In 1980, she stopped over in India on her way to Australia. This stopover changed her life. She then started on an inner journey encountering the treasures of Indian wisdom. Maria is the author of two books and has written extensively about India for German magazines. She wrote on the Yoga of the Bhagavad Gita for German psychology students. Her popular blog has garnered over a million views. This is her first book in English.

Maria Wirth's book is an ode to India and her wisdom. Stumbling into India on an accidental layover in 1980, she gets drawn into a seeker's journey, searching for truth and encountering the many remarkable men and women, gurus and teachers, who would act as guides for her decades in India. From Satya Sai Baba to Sri Ravi Shankar, from Anandamayi Ma to Amma, she records her close personal encounters and experiences. Her journey takes us to secluded and unknown yogis in the Himalayas, to the famous celebrity gurus, to colourful festivals and ascetic caves. But her real journey is the inner voyage to Yoga or union, a union with the Self. As we travel with and through her, we get to reflect on love and death, rebirth and liberation and the necessity and the limitations of the guru. Finding both inspiration and disillusionment, she returns again and again to her own Self and to the wisdom of India, a treasure for all of humanity in its journey. Indians call their country Bharat—the land of light. The light of wisdom still shines in this vast, beautiful and ancient land and freely guides all who want to know how to make life fulfilling and worthwhile.
