    Yes, that’s amazing. I am also struck on how meticulously Radhanath Swami pen’s each of his day’s experiences during his travels. Those days would have meant so much for him that he remembers it so well.

    When i took the book to read, i could not stop reading.It is written in such a way giving every detail of Radhanath swami’s journey. I enjoyed the book. even after reading it once, i now and then open it and read and still i get lost in reading.I gave the book to one of my friends he also had same opinion, he subsequently recommonded the book to her wife.This is proof of how well this book is recieved by the readers.
    Thank you Radhanath swami for sharing your spiritual journey with us in the form of this valuable book, it throws light on so many issues one may face during his own spiritual journey and by doing so it prepares any one willing to take to spiritual path, for taking all the challenges which may come in the way,with proper understanding.

    The power of recollection displayed by Radhanath Swami points to the extreme emphasis he has placed on all the recollected incidents.

    A must read book for all. The best thing about this book is how Radhanath Swami derives lesson from each of his experience and his determination to reach his goal inspite of the difficulties.

    Very crisp and elegant review. Radhanth Swamy’s life is like a clear transparent glass and an open book

  39. On June 29th, 2011 at 7:23 pm Sunny Says:

    Its amazing what Radhanath Swami underwent to reach his goal and even more amazing to see how he is equally (if not more) struggling hard to get the message of spirituality to people and help them. That is the reason of this book The Journey Home…what a divine personality…

    It is amazing how the author has written this book in thorough detail.

    You are helplessly bound to accompany Radhanath Swami in his search of absolute truth while he writes each and every detail of his treasure hunt. Magnetism of this book doesn’t allow you to keep it away.
