Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This House is on Fire is an up-close and personal account of the spiritual odyssey of Shri Dhyanyogi, the kind of Indian saint who is not supposed to exist nowadays, outside of tales.

He was 100 years old and walked so fast that no one could keep up with him. He had spent 80 years of relative seclusion in rural India, but in the early 1960s he came out into the open in India and the United States, burning with a desire to help ordinary people attain the highest states of spiritual realization.

Shri Dhyanyogi often urged everyone to take the spiritual gold he had to offer, saying "This house is on fire - loot all you can!"

This fascinating biography takes readers inside the mind of a fearless, humble yogi who faced down tigers, battled hunger and thirst, and risked his life for the ultimate prize of enlightenment. They will travel with him through Himalayan snows and searing deserts in the days when India was still wild.

Shri Anandi Ma, Shri Dhyanyogi's heir, has documented an extraordinary life, culture and time. The vivid stories of Dhyanyogi's experiences and 250 unique photographs of an exotic setting, stir the heart and kindle a profound sense of wonder about the possibilities of a spiritual life.

Synopsis:

Tales of the gentle yogi facing down tigers, battling hunger and thirst, and traveling through the treacherous mountains and scorching deserts of India are all told here. In his unending desire to be a resource to followers, Dhyanyogi is known to have said to his followers, "This house is on fire—loot all you can!"—referring to the wisdom he had and how little time he had on earth to impart it.
